I have shared in the past about my brothers log home. Here is another picture of the kitchen area. The walls, cabinets, counter top, and floors are from trees that my brother actually went out and harvested out of the woods. He cut down the trees and milled them with his own equipment. This was his first and only log home. It is Beautiful.
He planned and saved money for years to do this project. He sacrificed much to make this dream a reality. he put himself at physical risk by harvesting over 200 to 300 logs for this home. That is a lot of chainsaw use - which is risky at best - I know I have been there. My brother had dreamed of doing this for years but hesitated because of the size of the project - today, several years later his dream is reality.
How are your dreams doing? Are you holding off because of the risk? Is the economy scaring you? Maybe its time you followed your dreams - I am not advocating foolishness, but maybe God is asking you to do something but your scared. Cost? Time? Life-style change? What is holding you back? Maybe it is not building a log home - maybe it is adopting a child. Maybe a career change or teach a Sunday School class. Me? Mine is writing a book and now I am going to finish it- pray for me that I don't quit - I am almost there. I believe God wants me to do this.
Lets pray for each other - what would you like me to pray about?
