Helping Hands

Have you ever neared the point of exhaustion because of trying to accomplish more than humanly possible in a short amount of time?  Has God ever surprised you with unexpected help on the final stretch of your task to allow it to be completed?

The Lord did this for us, and we praise Him for the hands of His people.

On Saturday, November 19, Reid and I were frantically trying to complete the "to do" list on our house as we were moving out.  Rooms to be painted, a sink and countertop to be installed, stair railing to be built for the deck, etc...  The list overwhelmed us.  We had spent days carting loads from the house out to my parents' in a pick up truck, so these jobs dauntingly waited for our time.

However, there was a Superhero waiting in our midst!  Bruce Randall, pictured below, changed into his House Helper Superhero Costume (i.e. painting clothes) and arranged for people to come help us complete the tasks before us!  Thank you Bruce!  You are our hero!
 The Lively family came with paintbrush in hand.  We could not have done it without their help!  Brush up. Brush down.

Claire took on the job of going through the "leftover" things in the house that I didn't know what to do with.  Hi ho, Hi the trashcan we go!
 Of course, working with Bruce is always fun.  Laughter is a MUST!

 Sadly, I did not take a group photo from the work day.  Others blessed us and they are not pictured.  Christy Randall and all of the Randall children brought lunch for our mid-day break.  Greg Watlington, Michael Dempster and Chuck Moses gave up their time to complete every task on the list.  Wow!  Even the garage was organized for moving out!  Thank you!

We are so grateful to all of you for coming and helping us.  You have served the Lord with gladness.  From the depth of our hearts, thank you!

"Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
For the Lord is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations."
Psalm 100:2,5
