This is our journal of what we pray is our sojourn of life (Hebrews 11:8-10) along the narrow way (Matthew 7:14), even the old paths (Jeremiah 6:16), submitting to the Bible as a light unto both (Psalms 119:105). It is our prayer that these documented moments in our earthly time benefit whom God might choose to edify, but ultimately that God glorifies Himself through them.

A House – Update LI – Lower Siding, Update II

With the lower siding of the west side of the house installed, I started on the south side…

Here, the tar paper is up. Thanks again to Sue for the help!

Since I was able to get a couple of extra panels with that month’s budget, I was able to start on the east — and final! — side:

And here we are continuing with the east side:

I forgot that I was not supposed to grab a moving circular saw blade…oops. I am very thankful it wasn’t worse:

And here is the east side complete! Wow, all done with the lower siding! Thanks to the Lord for His provisions!

Once again, we are very thankful to God for granting the materials and physical strength to continue, and we again thank those who are making the house possible!

We always pray this house will be a place of worship to the Lord!

    Hi Uncle Joe & Auntie Jeanette,

    Sorry this is so late in response, but I just recognized we haven't been getting comment notifications, so I'm catching up.

    Thanks much, and yes, we are thankful to the Lord. Thank you both much for following along and your encouraging words. Love to you all as well.
