Working on renovations reminds me of working on life.

We all have things that need to be done.  For our sanity, for others, for God.

In the midst of it all we become overwhelmed.  We throw our hands up in the air, we sigh and sometimes just give up.

One wall at a time is the way I’m approaching things. A few nails and 2×4’s get put into place one step at a time.

And so, yesterday, we put up a short wall.  The wall had to go around some pipes and be accurate in order to put in a shower cabinet. 

When the work was done, and the day was done, we were done.

And yet . . . I was strangely invigorated.

One wall at a time.
