Building blocks

I spent this morning and afternoon helping dad build a couple of small retainer walls. Hard work, but it went fairly quickly.

Here is one side before, then the same after and both side finished!

I think it looks a lot better than it did before. Now off to class…!

redemption

Once again God has taken me full-circle to bring me back to a place that He once took me from. Maybe it was my pride, or possibly I just needed to learn a few things about myself. I think both are true. Now, I’m not really in a place where I can speak fully into what God has been doing the last few days, but it is amazing to see His grace in my life.

I don’t know if you have stopped lately to thin about the blessings in your life, but I would encourage you to do so. I’ve been so blessed with a family that has been so supportive of me during my ups and downs and everywhere in between. I haven’t always made the best choices, but I’m a work in progress and they understand that. I have been very blessed with multiple jobs that cover all of my bills and keep me in the black each month, not to mention super busy! 

If you have ever been in a place where you think that a door is completely closed and that great part of your life has passed you by because of mistakes you’ve made, just remember the redemption that comes with the cross. God tends to take some to the worst times in our lives and turn them around for His Glory. If/when that day comes… make sure to give Him the Glory, He deserves it all anyways.
