Today there was a big push to tar the roof and roll on the shingles. Yet again the youth stepped up and worked so hard. They tried their hand at everything and came out more confident after being challenged and experiencing their success. The interior wall went up and windows were cut to size, trimmed and framed.
Every morning prior to heading out to the building site, we gather in a circle and talk about the upcoming day. Yesterday we spoke about walls and I asked the team to think about what walls they would like to bring down. This morning I asked if anyone wanted to share about their reflections...One 14-year-old said she wanted to bring down the walls of control and worry and another talked about how to really trust God to be there for her. I would like to get better at leaving my judgements behind. Another dad in the group said he would like to shed fear. Our circle time has become powerful!
This morning we talked about what it means to be content when we have much and when we have little. Tomorrow we will talk about that question, and specifically what grips their heart and prevents them from being content.
The sun is going down right now, the breeze is cool, birds sing their song of days end. A small group has just finished singing and are doing their
devotional. What a great day!
