“Even the sparrow has found a home;
And a swallow a nest for herself.
Where she may lay her young-
Even our altars O Lord of hosts, My King and My God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
They will still be praising You.” (psalm 84:3-4)
Labor Day weekend. What I have been jokingly calling the “Real Labor Day Weekend.” It began last night with Dad C., Mom C., Doug, Nate, Adam, Desiree…the abundance of God’s care over our family. I feel very humbled and a little awkward with all this help. Today many of our friends are sacrificing their holiday weekend to come and help build the cottage in the back. They are sacrificing their time with their own families, passing on the resting from a hard week of work to come and help us. Wow. Can you say humility? What did we do to deserve this? Absolutely nothing. That is the point, I think, that God is making in our life. When I sat down this morning to pray over this weekend, God hit me with the fact that this is a perfect example of community. When we are in need, whether its watching each other kids or you know, building a house!, we stick together. It takes a village.
(I apologize if this is all over the place)…But I am just in awe of Him who provides each day and through friends and family. So, to those of you who have and are supporting us thank you. I understand each sacrifice you have made and may God bless your hands and families, as well.
