I even found an old school long sleeve shirt that I didn't mind getting paint on. And for those of you who might be wondering, No, I did not play in a flag football tournament. But I was an avid fan even way back in college, so they allowed spectators to buy the shirts too!
Here's Diane taping the trim. Jack is in the background scraping the trim around the garage door.
It was a great day of much laughter. I love my small group and was so excited to get to serve with them. This project was special to me, too, because the couple we were serving was one of the first couple's I met in the church. When I first started attending Bethany, I was in a House to House group with them. House to House was a ministry, like small groups, that met on Sunday evenings for about 8 weeks. Lowell and Char were one of the couples in the group. And we met at a lady's house from the church who was one of the most senior of the saints at the church! While we were serving on this particular day, we were talking with Lowell and Char's son. He shared that they are both in their 90s. One of the sweetest things he said about his dad was that although some of his memory was beginning to fade and he could not always remember things, he always knows when something is good and he would appreciate the work we did serving. Lowell came out at the very end to talk with us and I was able to get a great big hug from him. I wasn't sure if he would remember me because I had not interacted with him for many years, but as his son was telling him our names, I heard Lowell say, "Teresa...I remember her!" It was so sweet. They are a great example of a godly man and woman who have served the Lord faithfully for most of their lives.
