What a mess. What a mess we have been in for the last two months. Stabilizing our building created a rip roaring mess of dirt, dust and mud inside and out. It left us with damaged walls, floors, sidewalks and a devastated patio. Construction machinery, equipment and supplies have been blocking off our parking. Constant drilling, pounding, yelling and the noise of machinery has made it hard to concentrate. I keep reminding myself: this mess is being transformed into something beautiful…this mess is being transformed into something beautiful.
Maybe it’s a good visual for what is happening to the lives inside our building. Someone one said: “We are all hypocrites in transition. I am not who I want to be, but I am on a journey there, and thankfully I’m not who I used to be”. So, yes we are a bit messy…but it’s a beautiful mess.
