Moving back “home” has been full of advantages. My list is 2 miles long, but one reason is that we are closer to church. So close, in fact, we are literally a walk across the street from the front doors (and yet why are we still rushing across the street in a mad dash every Sunday morning?)
Anyway, a few weeks ago, my parents asked one of the members at church if he could recommend a good roofer, because our shingles were in desperate need to be replaced. Without hesitation he said “Well, the guys at church can do it!” And they DID! They came out in droves on Saturday and helped to replace the portion of our house that was in danger of turning to mush this winter.
Not only did we have about 20 different volunteers, some really amazing wives turned up with food. Mom had cooked up some hearty beef stew and cornbread, only to be on pins and needles that we wouldn’t have enough to go around. And out of the blue, some angels show up with a crockpot full of corn chowder! And biscuits! And then others came with brownies, and cookies…
What an amazing thing a church family is. So thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who was involved on Saturday-even those who prayed for safety, because it obviously worked! Other than some sore muscles, I do believe everyone came through unscathed!
Y’all are incredible.
