On my way to work Wednesday evening (I work once a week as a nurse), I drove to the land to tell KC bye. THIS is what I saw. The FIRST pole being raised. I was ecstatic and mad at the same time. I jumped out of my truck and yelled "I can't believe y'all are going to start this knowing I have to go work tonight". They knew I was "jokingly" mad. They all grinned. Mr. Frank looked at me with that smirk of his, and said "you just wait until you get home tomorrow". It was SO hard for me to get back in my vehicle and drive to Montgomery and miss it all!
When I got off of work Thursday morning, I had a few errands to run. Although I had been awake for almost 30 hours straight when I got home, I couldn't lay my head down until I got another look at their progress.
WOW! In that short time, one pole had turned into a whole wall. They had also raised 3 of the 6 large poles that will hold the half ton trusses. I was in awe of the size of it all. Word on the street is that by Sunday evening this 52 x 60 rustic barn will be framed. I cannot wait and of course I will post pictures for those of you who can't see it in person!
Y'all pray with me for God to give strength and safety to all of these awesome men helping make this big fat dream come to life!
ISAIAH 40:28-31 (MSG)
28Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
