This morning was another very cool, 36 degree, morning with ice on the truck. But again it warmed up, the sun was out and we had another beautiful fall day. The team is really enjoying this weather although we still aren’t seeing much color in the trees. Maybe we are expecting color too soon.
Ken and Joyce had our devotion today. The scripture was Ephesians 5:18-20 and the meditation was from “Disciplines” A daily devotion by Upper Room, 2015. The point was made that sometimes we become so concerned with making the world “more Christian” that we fail to notice that the church has become just like “the world”. The Lord’s will for us is neither to run away from nor to fight and conquer the world. Instead, our calling is to be God’s presence of goodness, righteousness and truth. There was again a lot of discussion and everyone wanted a copy of the meditation. Thanks, Ken and Joyce, for sharing with us this morning.
Today was the start of the second half of this project. After devotion it was pretty much the same as yesterday. The barn crew went to the barn to continue work on siding. The paint crew returned to Oasis to work on the girls rooms. It was another busy day with so much accomplished. The barn crew completed the siding today! AWESOME!!
It looks really good. Now they have to work on the end trim and the windows. That will still take a while but they have done such a great job. The paint crew is down to two rooms left in Oasis. Those two have been cleaned, patched and primed as needed. We hope to complete those two rooms tomorrow. We will get the final room count tomorrow. The rooms are looking really good. Anne primed the wall in Noble today and Cheryl painted the first coat of paint. It looks good and just needs one more coat. Tom finished installing the blinds in James Hall. So proud of what this team has accomplished thus far. After tomorrow we have only 4 work days left and still lots to be done.
