Good evening LJ’s what a semi productive week as Thursday I received the go ahead on the Pulpit project and Got a reprieve as I have till next Saturday to have it finished, While not my most profitable piece it is my first as a woodworker so I must try to put my best foot forward as this is for God’s house as well as my reputation as a professional :) Now I can tell the story of how it became that I got this project, The pastor that asked me to do build it was a minister at our church and through the process she became a pastor and started her own church that was about a year ago now the church has grown and they finally got a building on their own :)
the most challenging thing was this project had to be done on a shoestring budget with donated materials and some of my time as well, as I know working like this will never get me anywhere but I have to remember God can bless at anytime and this could be a test to see if I can handle it :) !!!! As a woodworker this was easy, where it wasn’t as easy: MAIN DISH was learning my shop was as efficient nor was large enough to handle projects of this magnitude SIDE DISH eating humble pie as in not being able to be as profitable as I like !
This week after the project leaves I will be making changes to the shop, cleaning up the sawdust and scraps and working on other aspects of my business. I cherish this moment of doing this project and pray for more to come and that they may be profitable as I know only God can do this for me :)
Until next week take care :)
