So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. -Matthew 24:33
Renovation and construction continue at our home in Virginia with Duane, our contractor.
A Time For Renewal
Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion! For he strengthens the bars of your gates; he blesses your children within you. He grants peace within your borders; he fills you with the finest of wheat. He sends out his command to the earth; his word runs swiftly. He gives snow like wool; he scatters frost like ashes. He hurls down hail like crumbs— who can stand before his cold? -Psalm 147:12-17
“True compassion does not sit on the laps of renovation; it dives with an approach to reconstruction. Don’t throw a coin at a begger. Rather, destroy his source of poverty.” ― Israelmore Ayivor
