Jim brought us our devotion today from Genesis 22 – the story of the testing of Abraham. He pointed out that when asked by his son where was the ram for the sacrifice, Abraham replied “The Lord will provide.” Jim reminded us that if God can provide during that extreme incident, then he can provide for the needs of his children today. And that sometime he provides for those needs through us.
Jim and Max went back to Bob’s house on Sugarloaf Key to finish a few punchlist items that the team did not get to yesterday. By shortly after lunch they had the oven wired and installed, the microwave installed and the remaining trim down in the kitchen. That finishes our work at that house – unless …??
After completing the work at Bob’s house, Max and Jim joined the rest of the team at Dennis’s house back on Big Pine Key. There, this morning Anne, Sue and Virgie sanded the bedroom and applied a final coat of mud for areas needing a little touchup. Dan and Dennis worked on installing the closet doors in the back bedroom. After lunch Max and Jim worked on installing the back bedroom door. Dennis will finally be able to close the door to his bedroom for the first time in two years. Dennis and Dan completed the closet doors. Sue began the cleanup in the first bedroom in preparation for priming and texturing next week. Anne and Virgie painted a door and trim. It was another busy and productive day. A good way to end our NOMADS work week.
Since Sara will be leaving this weekend, it was her choice of where we went for dinner tonight. She told Max to pick and so we went back to Marathon to Brutus Seafood Market. Everyone said their food was very good and most importantly, Sara told Max he made a good choice. We will be sorry to say goodbye to Sara but are anxious for her to get home to her orthopedist to repair her arm. Now, on to the weekend.
