2nd Timothy 2:19

“Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”

Three hundred and forty-six days after a fire that destroyed my home I was beyond excited to find out that finally cement trucks would be arriving!  We had watched the destruction and clearing of the old house.  Waited as the tests were done on the soil to make sure the foundation would be right.  Frames went up to form the concrete.  Sand was delivered to the property apparently customized sand which was one of the results of the soil tests.  Plumbing permits, electricians and inspectors followed.  The Sand Box as it was affectionately known was transformed into a grid with tarps which looked like it would be great for a giant game of chess.  Finally everything was approved and  ready to go!

So naturally I thought of camping

12 hours out until our live concrete pour event!!! Royal hats not required but appropriate pajamas strongly encouraged#alisonsouthernullomREALTOR #alisonskyrealty #buildingahouse #strongfoundation

I have never been one for camping and well I really like beds.  So I really did try to set up the tent but well again Beds are nice.  So I went home almost to excited to sleep.  The thing is it’s not just the day the fire happens or the day the shock wears off.  It seems like your whole life is on pause and that is so difficult after loosing everything.  You cannot really buy anything because well you want to wait until the new house is built.  None the less camping still wasn’t for me, though I did rough it a little waking up super early to make sure that I was there for the main event.

Then God said let there be coffee: God saw that it was good and all of human kind was eternally grateful

Then God said,” Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it according to their various kinds.” And it was so. Genesis 1:11

Then God said:  I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it they will be yours for food.”  Genesis 1:29

OK, so it doesn’t necessarily say God gave us every seed bearing plant to create amazingly wonderful morning drinks.  However, as God knows all and sees all I am quite sure that it was implied.

Good morning grab a cup of coffee and settle in or get up and out to watch the foundation pour!!!#alisonsouthernullomREALTOR #alisonskyrealty #newbuild #foundation

Boom Trucks, Cement Trucks and loads of concrete oh my!

Finally it was time and I was so blessed to have my entire family and loads of friends their via the magic of the internet and Facebook.  I had never really done Facebook live so their were a couple of Hiccups along the way.  But all in all we had a great time as the song says… “I get by with a little help from my friends!  as I said in the following videos I cannot thank everyone enough for their encouragement, prayers, patience and love!!!

So then we had a foundation and all of the sudden I was exhausted.  I think that up until the point that a there was very visible progress very large progress I had been holding my breath so to speak.  It was literally like a great weight I didn’t even know was there had been lifted.  I was so lucky my family and cats made it through the fire and the rest was just stuff.  I have friends and family who love me and an entire town supporting me.  I feel like a phoenix who has risen from the ashes.  Stay tuned for future updates!
