Last Fall I posted A She Shed in the Making part 1 where I shared that Nathan had this brilliant idea to build me a she shed as a fifteenth anniversary gift! I’m pretty sure by the time we hit up the building material store he was wishing he’d have never entertained the idea…but alas six months later the she shed is pleasantly finished! When my husband started it at the end of last year the weather turned pretty cold so he made sure he got it buttoned up on the outside and the inside waited until warmer days over the past month. I’ll share photos and let them do the talking.
Also if you’ve hit up this post due to a tag-link and are in the midst of planning or building a she shed then WELCOME!! Let us know if you have any questions or need hints on how to go about this or that. We have quite a few cost saver tips too!
I typically get excited about our projects and want them done yesterday and then end up spending more time on redos. This is probably the first project we’ve done where I’ve realized rushing (due to impatience) is not a good idea!! I wanted everything done right and effectively so I actually patiently endured.
Haven’t we ALL had to practice patience of some sort or another lately? But check out the below verse and rest your hope in the Lord for perseverance.
Isaiah 40:31 ESV— ‘But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.’
When life frustrates or overwhelms believe that God is in control regardless, practice patience and rest humbly upon what the Lord may be teaching you! I’ll be doing the same!…in fact our church is putting together a video (featuring clips or photos) of what our church family has been learning through this time of Covid-19 and here’s my mantra over the past few weeks; this is the photo I’ll submit and it’s been the cry of my heart…It’s not been easy but I have a Holy Commander to spur me along.
Side note: We’ve actually been referring to the she shed as our “quarantine condo” because it has served the whole family a little vacation atmosphere.
