It seems that the days are flying by, and time for work on the cabin has been a very rare commodity! Emily and I have been chafing around the collar a little (well, okay, a lot!). Our quite overworked husbands are doing the best they can, and as the holidays begin, their “off” time is becoming even more scarce. Nathanael is completely overcome with work during these days, and now that the days are shorter there isn’t a lot of daylight for Bill to work on the cabin even when he does get to be home!
Well, this past week, things finally came together for some workdays. Last Saturday, Bill’s brother Curtis came to help with the electrical work. While not as much got done as they’d have liked, it really helped just to get back out there. It was doggone cold (no cracks from up north!) and Bill hadn’t gotten the heater from work yet, but they got some stuff moved around, some boxes put in, and some plans made.
No fear while in Daddy’s hands!
Then Tuesday through Friday, Bill and Nathanael (and Emily!) got the last of the glass installed! Bub was so excited that he thought about moving in Friday night! Of course, there is still no electricity or plumbing – major necessities – and insulation might be nice, but we are so excited for the work that is getting done! Emily and I thank our Lord for our amazing husbands, and I thank Him for Emily, who still hopes in God and in Nathanael. She is an encouragement to me!!
Bill was glad they had access to these handy little items – sure made the job easier. Bub, Em, and Bill are moving this huge pane of glass to go in the back upstairs window.
The glass was moved upstairs on this “lift”

Nonnie feels a little safer with that glass in there!

There they are, looking down from their little house!
I would be remiss if I didn’t include a picture of my dear granddaughter at the Ball! You can read all about our Saturday evening outing here, but I’m only giving you one picture.
That’s Dan in her beautiful green dress behind us.
Arie-Jean was beautiful, and we both enjoyed ourselves so much! She is such a sweet baby – she really reminds me of Nathanael at that age. He was (and is) the sweetest natured person!
I pray that you all have a blessed holiday (HOLY-DAY) season, and remember, as Emily teaches me daily, to hope in the Lord Jesus.
God bless your day!
