More "Boots"

Blue shirts as far as the eye could see, willing hands and hearts of service hit the ground running early this morning.
They did everything - floors and doors, windows and trim, sheetrock and painting, saws humming and nail guns popping. Some were quite retired and others were waiting for school to start soon. Each one with a smile, each one ready to do whatever needed done.
They sweat through everything they had on and yet they smiled. They loved it when the "snack ladies" showed up mid morning and again mid afternoon -- the fruit and snack bars kept them going and brought many a smile and thank you.
Monty stayed with one home and me with another. Between us we managed to keep them supplied with both materials and tools. When you have quite a few workers in a home the materials can really go quickly!
Tomorrow they will be back -- new faces with a few returning ones. They will pack their tools with their water and also be ready to go. We are so thankful and appreciative for each one -- each with the joy of the Lord filling their hearts to overflowing -- overflowing right on to the homeowners (and us.)
Be sure and stay tuned. . . Until next time . . . be blessed. Susan and Monty
