Now we can start building the basement walls. After what seems to be a long period of "destruction", now we can begin the "construction" part on the house. It's really true that construction is frequently preceded by deconstruction. In order to start with a firm foundation on which to build you must frequently do a bit of "tearing down" in order to have a good start.
Well, we're finally beginning the construction, or building up, phase. This is a very exciting milestone. As usual, we are grateful to our Father for this blessing and opportunity.
