for so long I’ve used Joshua as an excuse and yeah maybe he is a bit young to be out there on a building site but he was so good – he managed to entertain himself with the village kids and stayed away from danger.
I’m thankful that I got to experience this. I know the families are grateful that we went and helped build their houses and hand them their keys. It was pure joy. But I know that I also received, nothing material or physical but I know I received something.
I’m learning that It’s a beautiful thing when we give our time and ourselves to others and for others. we’re blessed, and blessed richly. It’s almost therapeutic that I ask myself why I don’t do it often enough.
It’s hard for me to explain exactly what I’m feeling now but I know I received for my heart and soul.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
