Home Makeover: Social Distancing Edition
View this post on InstagramPainter’s Quarantine: Day 2 This place is big! I am scraping and painting. I ordered a new tool to help strip the paint safely ($500!). It will be here Monday. I have no idea how I’m going to get up high, but I’m going to try. There’s a third floor up there as well that can’t be seen in the photo. Send painting prayers. #remodel #fixxerupper #quarantine #socialdistancing #missionhouse
we are using this quarantine (aka social distancing) to paint our 105 year old mission house. We let missionaries and those in need of rest come and stay with us to find rest. It's been a long journey of restoration, but when God call you, you stick to the path even when deeply discouraged. Some of that comes from people, some from funding, and some from not being able to go out to the homeless like normal.
We are uncertain about getting to serve the homeless like we normally do, but I'm happy to drive down the streets throwing sack lunches like candy in a parade. Pray for our friends on the street. May your heart be open to seeing them as human beings. I promise you that we can not even wrap our minds around the trauma most of them have been through.
Making the world better for one makes the world better. Use your time to write cards, make calls, and check on people.
I am personally working on a bit of writing for a project that I have been thinking about for over a decade. It's a culmination of 20 years of studying prayer and journaling. I'm looking for quotes that have the word beauty in them and any scripture that you have personalized with your name in it. Send them my way. Please and thank you.
Sipping my lavender honey latte (I made myself) and signing off!
