Kentucky Changers

This week some delightful young ladies and their adult leaders have been at my home putting up a new deck. These girls are from 12 to 17 or so. They are learning how do do this work and are doing a fantastic job.
Yesterday, they were so busy trying to take out a concrete stoop and the concrete steps that led up to my door. You know, we sing the song On Christ the solid rock I stand. Let me tell you it must have been my steps. The used sledge hammers. No luck on the steps. They got an electric jackhammer. One step removed and a partial removal of the second step. All of this from about 10 A.M. to quitting time at 3;00 P.M.

Today they were told that they would have to get the step removed to allow a post to be put on the corner of the house and they accomplished the task after my brother brought over a drill with a concrete bit and drilled some holes in that second step. The corner post is in place and the frame and joists are up. It has been a wonderful experience to see these young ladies work and lead in the devotionals at lunch.
Today's devotional was taken from James 3:6. Attitudes was the title. The young lady who led the group is just 14 years old. Marvelous insight into how our attitudes need to be positive and our tongues held to the highest standards of speaking positive thoughts. God bless you ladies as you serve the Lord with your volunteer work with Ky. Changers
