this old house

It's a blessing, but a responsibility nevertheless.  There's lots of work from ground to roof.  We've been cleaning and cleaning and cleaning.  We've been fixing and fixing and fixing.  When finished, we hope to reap the rewards, but such rewards will take time to experience the benefit.  For now, we move forward and keep our shoulders to the wheel.  We've often felt this gift a burden. It is a responsibility in which we must invest time, money and labor to experience a return.  It is a responsibility, but a blessing nevertheless.  

In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.
~Proverbs 14:23

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.
~Proverbs 16:3
