We helped him clean it out because he was using it as more of a storage shed, and so we helped moved the stuff out to the roof of his store that is next door. But, our labor wasn't cheap since the wind blew his crates over and fell off the roof onto the windshield of his VW Jetta. He has just pulled it out too to give us space to move our stuff upstairs. The good news is that he told us to put the crates there. But still... He owns at least 4 houses here on the street and is super helpful. The windows should get put in tomorrow for example.
The bad news is that I have not been able to sleep in my hammock, so that's a little sad, but it has been really cold without windows and with a ton of fans. Thankfully I didn't throw away my super soft blanket like they told me to when I got here.
Funny thing is that the lady of the other house we were going to move into finally showed up with the keys when we were already moving. So, that brings us to the gospel principle of the week.
In the story their are many people in play. Are you the landlord that just doesn't have time? Are you our new landlord that is able to take advesity and still love people? Are you someone that is willing to help? Or are you helpless and hopeless? The great things about it all, is that YOU get to decide who you are now and who you will become in the future. State of mind is not based on race, or , social status. May you each be able to excercise your agency to better yourself first, and then the world. Change has to start somewhere, and it's with you.
Pray always, that your faith in that change faileth not.
With much love,
