At the beginning of July many of our fellow church brethren came and served of their time, equipment and talent by helping our family frame our house. What a gift! We are so very thankful!
These boys weren't resting on the job or anything like that.... no, no... of course not.... they were just showing us the shape of the future roofline --- of course....
We were completely blessed by this "barn-raising" event. Therefore, we are compelled to proclaim that it is by the Grace of the Lord Jesus that everything we have has been provided to us through His Sovereign hand. And to Him, we are eternally grateful.
Soli Deo Gloria!
Oh! I almost forgot to mention that we were able to pick wild Huckleberries again this year... While they may appear so, those are not blueberries in the photo above. They are just a sampling of the very large and perfectly ripe, wild Huckleberries we have been able to find in recent years. I have mentioned before that it is definitely one of our family's favorite pastimes. We've been making homemade Popsicles, milkshakes, ice cream, as well as adding the berries to pancakes and muffins. I hope I can spare enough [from the much-labored stashes] to make a pie this year.
