There you go

Hello there. Today was another roaster!! I was working today digging a hole at the village. I have moved thousands of miles away from home and traded my police job for digging a hole! Just kidding. But I really have been digging a hole for the last three days and will continue so, Lord willing, for the next week. Today I kept hitting the edges of the dirt wall b/c we are deep in the hole and would get soo frustrated b/c dirt would go flying all over me. One time I actually started talking to the wall like I was very angry at the wall and the other three guys there who were working stopped and watched me. Jorge finally asked me if I was angry at the wall or something. And I told them I was not mad at them but at the wall. I was covered in dirt and as of right now...7 pm...I still have not took a shower! NASTY!! ha I have become a very good digger and tree waterer. And I am doing it all for the Lord. I try not to complain too much and just work hard. I was reading about Joseph in the Bible the other day and God told me something about our lives...well my life. If I want everything that I do to be blessed and others to trust me with their work I have to work the BEST I can in EVERYTHING...digging, watering, waiting, spending money. AND I can not do my best if I am complaining or being negative. That is impossible. So I have tried to start really focusing on being positive and doing every little task I get the best I can. It does help to think about that rather than how hard this is or how petty this is. And this also includes being patient with my TRUCK and the mechanics here! So...There you go. God bless!!

  1. Some days I wish that all I had to do was to dig a hole. When it is for the Lord it is more than just a hole. Sometimes we dig our holes and the Lord has to help get us out. The lord teaches me lessons in humility so I will lean on Him to achieve bigger tasks.
