The Hands and Paintbrush of Jesus in Action!

I wish I'd thought to take a picture of my hubby and our worship pastor up on ladders today while they worked tirelessly painting our house.

I'm so thankful for God's timing...not just for Jerry's sake (things go much quicker when there are two working together), but also because we've been studying what it means to love and to serve like Jesus wants us to in our family's devotion time.

What a wonderful thing it is to be a part of the body of Christ.  What a blessing to say to my son, "Look out there.  That's what it means to be Jesus to the world."

What a blessing to be on the receiving end of such a selfless act of kindness.

This great man knows who he is.  And Kevn, if you happen to be reading....thank you.

Hey- Did Jerry and Kevin do any singing while they were painting? That would have been wonderful to hear!!!

I'm thankful that Jerry had help. Andrew certainly knows what it is like to tackle such a HUGE painting project. He's just hoping to get 1 side of our house finished this summer (he started last summer). It's a very tedious and time consuming job.

Thank the Lord for helpers!!!
