Weekly Blessings on Our God Sized Project

Give Thanks in the DiggingIn a effort to be thankful – grateful really and to give God glory for every blessing on this project I am posting a weekly list of blessings.

We were able to get the forks for the skid steer thrown in on the rental.
God saved a dozer for us. It had been reserved until just before Brian called to check on getting it. They had already turned several people away because it was reserved.
We have had two families visit. That may not seem like a blessing for our project but I think it is. We want people to be welcome here, enjoying our blessings with us.
We have had offers for free labor.
We were able to borrow a truck and trailer for moving equipment.
We were able to borrow a dump truck for the next phase of the project.
We were able to get all the work we needed done and a little extra in the time we had the equipment rented.
We found a large pocket of clay in the middle of our building site. I have seen the clay in my own soul and that is a blessing.
