Pearls and Dreams
Today was an AWESOME and incredible day. One of the counselor's from camp came from Norman to see the wall raising. She's been praying for this project for 2 years!
Unfortuneately, The wallraising was about 20 minutes late because the Mayor of Broken Arrow was late, so our Pastor and his wife had to go, their daughter's soccer game was at 9:30. But, they did get to see the walls that were raised being built, and all the people there. Our Associate pastor was part of the ceremony.
No one warned me that I would be giving a speech at the ceremony. I found out about 2 seconds before the ceremony started!!!! So I had to talk off the top of my head!!!
In the program they had the scripture from Psalms 127:1a Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain.
I didn't choose it. I didn't know it was going to be there. I couldn't have chosen a more appropriate verse.
The house has made remarkable progress. All outer walls are up, the inside frame is build. You can see where our bedrooms, our closets, the bathroom, mudroom, kitchen and living room will be. The windows and doors are cut out. There is a little house sitting on the corner of 616 S. Cedar Broken Arrow!
There was about 100 people that showed up throughout the coarse of the day. They average 50 at a wallraising.
As soon as my nephew sends me some pictures, I will post them.
It was just incredible.
I am utterly exhausted. Happy, incredibly happy.
