New and Increased respect for carpenters

I finished a day of carpentry on a Habitat for Humanity project and realized....I was profoundly tired and stiff. How on Earth do people do this day in and day out and do it well? I am not soft - I have been a soldier, a rugby player, and the like. but this was not easy and it was just one day.

Now I know why the shot and a beer places have a lot of tradesmen in them after work. Oh, and Mike Rowe is right - I know I should have more regard for those doing "Dirty Jobs"!

Also, even more respect for Jesus of Nazareth...certainly, he saved me by redeeming my sin (#1) but being a carpenter (#2) AND turning water into wine (#3)....RESPECT for that!

I worked part of one summer with a concrete company. The first day is by far the hardest. You get into a sort of rhythm, but it certainly isn't easy.

You know you never cease to amaze me with your charity and generosity. You are an example I strive to emulate.
