Almost There... a house update

AFTER (or during, getting close to finish)

Our house is getting close to being finished. After all the devastation from Hurricane Sandy, we will soon have a new home. In the last few weeks, we have had Samaritan’s purse volunteers come from Illinois, California and Kentucky. Many of these special people have been to Long Beach more than once since the storm. Some saw the gutting stage and mountains of garbage around our town. Now they got to see it beautiful again, something that seemed impossible almost two years ago.

It seems very symbolic to me, reminding me of the day I asked Jesus into my life about twenty-six years ago—okay, now I sound old. God took my messed up heart and cleaned me, made me brand new. Every mistake I regretted was erased, painted over so I could shine for Him. Sometimes it’s good to look back at my “before” just as the pictures of our house help me appreciate the transformation.
