Cora's Playground surfacing

When I went to church yesterday,
the surface material had arrived!
It was fun to watch these workers putting it down.
Today they added
I LOVE it!

I went back to church tonight and noticed that they added blue.
It was too dark to take a picture of it.

Two more colors to go.

The playground isn't the only new thing at church.

This is the former library.
I was asked to be on the building committee
when we built this new addition.
I helped design it.
Now it is being made into 3 offices and Janelle's place to work.
They'll have to remove the word "Library" above the door.

This will be the new library.
Two former Sunday School rooms.
They tore down a wall to make one big room.
And cut out a double door that will open to the atrium.
Can't wait to see how it will be put together!
So exciting!


This morning was a nice cool morning.
A good time to go outside and do some watering and weeding.

There is some sense of satisfaction weeding when I can get the whole weed - root and all.
Feel grouchy - grrr -when only the top comes off because that means the weed will come back.

It made me realize that sin is like that.
Sometimes we don't get to the root of a sin problem.

Surrendering all my ugliness to Him.
Everything that is not like Him.

I had a HUGE bag full of weeds pulled this morning by the time I was done.
And I know I'll have more next week.
Daily I come before Christ. He has to work in me each day.
And He loves me so much - that is what is amazing.
His grace - His love.

"Guard my first springs of thought and will,
And with Thyself my spirit fill.
Direct, control, suggest this day
All I design, or do, or say;
That all my powers with all their might,
in Thy sole glory may unite.

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost."
