Well Done

Good and Faithful have been the people in our lives this last week. We are reveling in the work done on our home. Guys, the floors are beautiful and cozy and clean! I wish I knew an exact number, but I think over 50 people, including kids, worked while we were at the hospital last week to move our furniture, tear out the carpet and kitchen linoleum, install the floors, fix the trim, move the furniture back into our house, dust the furniture, walls, floors and they cleaned every surface they could find.

The floors are a beautiful blessing, but what is more beautiful is the service shown to our family. I am sure God is well pleased with your faithfulness and generosity.

We are prayerful these floors will help keep Esther healthy following her upcoming chemo treatment, MIBG therapy, and know they will help after her stem cell transplant in December/January.

I don't know who paid for the floors and I think that is good. I think of Matthew 6:14:

Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them.
2 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
God has a reward for the generosity shown toward our family, thank you.

I wanted to let you know about our friend who lined up the logistics and coordinated the effort to make it all happen. He used his business to bless us and was very generous with his time. He lined up the materials and a fantastic, kind, generous, fast installer. Our friend organized all of the help to make it happen. It was so smooth. I know I just wrote a verse about keeping your generosity secret. I am positive Travis only had Esther's health in mind when taking on this project, and his motivation is to honor and obey the Lord. I am sure God is pleased!

I also want to just recognize a skilled man with a good business. Travis' company is Green Built Home Design. He can do anything from a small remodel to new construction. He does interiors, exteriors, basements, additions, etc. He works with Naturecraft Custom Homes and you can see more of what Travis could do for your next home project at  He'll do a great job.

Well done, good and faithful servants!
