Fixing Messes

Today, as my husband and I put mortar around the stones on our fireplace, another lesson was learned.

For those of you who’ve never had this laborious task, it’s messy.  Really messy. As in “how did I get concrete in my hair” kind of messy.

One part of this job is to clean off the stones after the concrete dries a little.  

“How did I get all this concrete mortar on the face of the stones?” I asked somewhat to myself.

“You weren’t being careful,” I heard Holy Spirit tease me.  (Yes, He has a sense of humor). 

Another part of the job is to try and knock off the rough edges of the mortar once it dries.  We used a wire brush and putty knife for this part.

“You know I do the same for you,” Holy Spirit whispered.

“I know you do.  And I thank you because some of the messes You clean up, some of the rough edges you knock off are because I wasn’t being careful.  Thank you!”

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6‬ ‭NIV‬‬ “I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭42:16‬ ‭NIV‬‬
