After tutoring this AM, I called the service company. The man curtly told me I was fresh out of luck--there is no way to get into the garage. GROAN! WHIIEE!
I began brain storming how to get in--after all my lawn mower and garden tools are in there! After coming up with an idea, I called #1 son who happens to be a carpenter extraordinaire--THANKFULLY. We concur a hole has to be cut to get into the garage and a door put in to allow entrance in the future if this happens again.
Even though I live in Egypt, I have acquired a relationship with a handyman-who I have on speed dial. He came over and cut the hole--turns out it is not a simple job of cutting through the sheet rock. There is fire board in the vestibule where I am cutting the door and the garage on the other side is ship lap siding-which means a lot of cutting. The deed is done--I am back into the garage. All that remains is adding the door and framing it out. Well except for the garage door which the handyman locked while fooling with it and I have no key and cannot seem to get to trip from the inside. OH WELL, I'll think about that tomorrow, Scarlett!
I have been praying for God to give me thoughts beyond myself---CAREFUL what you pray for! I am not complaining! I live in a country where I am not persecuted or in fear of losing my life because of my faith, I am healthy, I have a roof over my head and food on my table and a plethora of loved ones.
Today my brick making was a little more difficult since the straw was short changed, but I still got the bricks made. Brick making is an honorable profession and not everyone can be the architect, not everyone can be the contractor, not everyone can be the supervisor, but we all can make bricks and what would we have--if someone didn't make the bricks! It's the small things that make a difference. Each and every small deed done in a way to reflect His glory--you never know who is watching you making your bricks.
Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
