The Hardest Part…

…of this shop project is definitely the roof of the structure. The second half of the roof will be harder than the first half since access is limited. Up and over and now the panel is ready to stabilize with screws.

The first couple of panels are the new learning curve and then they find a good method to make it work easier. I stand by and pray and when needed give extra stability to ladders.

Two panels got up today, Thursday. Eleven panels to go for the hardest part of the roof to be complete. Slow and easy everything comes together.

We are heading to Spokane for our shopping day on Friday. We have a very hot forecast for Friday so working on the shop roof is not a good idea. Before and After I babysat our grands on Thursday I was able to mow the front of our property. I mowed the back on Wednesday.

On Friday we are going to the Ukrainian Market in Spokane called Kiev to stock up on Russian Dumplings for us and our kids and then we will stop at Trader Joe’s, TJ Maxx, Total Wine, Costco and Fred Meyer. I have not been able to find Boysenberry Pancake Syrup in Colville so hopefully Spokane’s Fred Meyer won’t let me down. It’s interesting to see items that aren’t available these days. What have you had a hard time finding? We will definitely bring our coolers with ice packs to keep our frozen purchases and refrigerated purchases safe for the long drive home in heat over 100 degrees!

Eric Metaxas interviewed  John MacArthur yesterday on his radio program about reopening church this last Sunday. Praying for Grace and other churches and pastors who are ready to stand. Happy to be able to go to our church in person these days.

“Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved.”

– Philippians 4:1

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13

A couple years ago I read a biography of Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas. A very good book that I highly recommend. It’s available on Amazon…

As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer—a pastor and author. In this New York Times best-selling biography, Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer’s life—the theologian and the spy—and draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil.

Hope the last day of July 2020 is a day that brings joy to you and yours!
