Becky Bob the Builder has finished.

Well my time being a lacky for my builder friend has finished. 3 weeks have sped by so quick. A recap on what I've learnt are:
- Sanding/Prepping
- Painting
- Varnishing
- Window Cleaning
- Gap Filling
I know it doesn't sound like much but for me its been a good lesson on how to prepare and paint a room. Perhaps God is preparing me for my own house DIY! I'm keen! But boy its been hard work. I've used muscles I didn't even know I had. Its good to learn a new skill but like I said in a previous post I'm not made to be a painter! I now find myself looking a the paint job in my own place and thinking 'oh my they didn't do a good job...'.
So what life lesson can I take from this? Well definitely that we have to all be sanded down, cleaned off and prepared for life's personal construction, deconstruction and reconstruction. Thank God He's my builder/decorator and not the pleb that I was doing the job. (That's why I'm not God folks!). His ways are good. Although I haven't always enjoyed the prep time that God has got me through I do enjoy the final product or the work that is always in progress and process in me. There's a life lesson to be learnt in any thing really. Remember to builder your house on the rock!



  1. Loving your lessons... when are you going to pop around and paint our house then? ;)

  2. Its great learning a new skill! The old "sand paper ministry" as our pastor puts it, not fun sometimes.
