Focus on Fairfield!

Saturday was Focus on Fairfield day, where people from all over Birmingham come and help Restoration and the community! They paint, do yard work, clean up road sides, fix things at the school, etc. There is one each quarter and this quarter our Sunday School class came out to do some work at our house! I have never experienced the love of Christ in such a sweet way! There were a couple of projects we had to get done for insurance purposes and we were so overwhelmed! But it turned out that we had friends come paint our porch and fix some eaves in the back of the house! (I hope they are still our friends after we worked them to death)! It was a great day of fellowship! I am so thankful to everyone who was there to help~ it made a tremendous difference on the house, and lifted a major burden!! I promise it would have taken me and Clint three years to get all of that done by ourselves! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

"Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him; the Lord protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land." Psalm 41:1-2

****Sorry there are no before pictures!! It is amazing the difference paint can make~ especially on an 85 year old house! ;)
