Another beautiful day in Wisconsin. It is the one year anniversary of last year’s flooding. So sad. We are even more thankful for our beautiful day after seeing the pictures of the flooding on the news. Unfortunately, there are still a lot of people who are not back in their homes or are in their homes but they haven’t been able to have them repaired. People are still trying to navigate the FEMA, SBA, etc systems.
Today Harry led the team in devotion. He used the Daily Word book again and today’s word was “potential”. We all have so much potential because we have the holy spirit living in us. He also used Proverbs 11:25 from the Message – “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed, to remind us that sometimes we need a reminder that somebody cares.” And sometimes we need to give that reminder to others. Whenever we feel that nudge, that still small voice, to call a friend, send a card, we need to DO IT because they may be in need of a reminder someone cares. Thanks for the reminder, Harry.
We then all headed back out to our usual job sites to work. Max took Anne and Nancy back to JJ’s to complete the flooring, texturing and trim. Max stayed around and worked on the floor a while while Anne and Nancy completed the texturing. He then went to Rhonda’s to check on Gary and Norm while Anne and Nancy worked on completing the floor and trim. Norm and Gary worked on doors most of the day, interior and exterior. From Rhonda’s Max went to check on Stel, Jodi and Harry. They were working to install windows and of course one of the two windows purchased for them last evening was defective. It wouldn’t open. The exterior wall is almost completely framed awaiting the other window. Progress is being made and they have another day or two work to complete our portion of this project and then it will be waiting on the plumber and electrician. By the end of the day JJ’s flooring was complete and we need to install the transition strip and reinstall the trim.
At the end of the day, we went to Dairy Island for ice cream. They have more than 20 flavors of soft serve but Anne just got vanilla, and Max had root beer. Both were very good and we would definitely go back and probably will. It was our treat for our anniversary – 37 years. We will celebrate further this weekend. It was another really good day.
