A Firm Foundation

Wahoo!! We passed the county inspection for the footers and got them poured!

The building inspector and the excavation guy both commented on how much attention to detail we were applying. I guess they see a lot of less-than-good-quality instances that they have to deal with. Hey, we're retired; we have the time to do it right :) . After all, there is a fundamental principle that a firm foundation is the key to a well-built house. I enjoy contemplating spiritual parallels to the "everyday" events in our lives. If you're interested, you can read my thoughts about the spiritual parallels regarding having a firm foundation here.

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.
