Change Clothes

This morning I explained to David that I did not want to move the bookshelf. It’s over 9 feet long and heavy. After he heard that, he asked me to show him what I had in mind.

He was pleasantly surprised to see a cleared room. In a few minutes, he took the table apart and helped me move the heavy top pieces aside. We moved the empty buffet.

Then he went to the bi-fold door, pushed down 2 hidden springs and slid it out of its tracks.

“You’ve got to be kidding me,” I exclaimed.

The love seat effortlessly slid through the doorway. He went to work and I remembered my verse for today.

Leviticus 6:11, “Then change clothes and carry the ashes outside the camp to a clean place.” The Message

I changed clothes.

Back in the basement, I vacuumed rugs and the floor underneath. Then I rearranged the rugs to cover most of the area. I brought in an extra rug.

Using duct tape, I taped the rugs together on the underside. I was able to move the furniture myself when it didn’t catch on the rugs.

The room is arranged and waiting for the table top. That is something I cannot do alone.

There is one more dresser I want to use in that room. I think I will take the drawers downstairs.

But first – I have to change clothes again.

Are you doing anything in your dining room to get ready for the holidays?

Bring in the Table

Two days in a row, I filled out my planner and squeezed all the activities on it.

Two days in a row, God laughed.

While reading my chapters, I came across this verse.

Leviticus 40:4, “Bring in the Table and set it, arranging its Lampstand and lamps.” The Message

I got all excited. Maybe I will be able to move the big table downstairs. The second verse I ran across confirmed it.

Leviticus 40:16, “Moses did everything God commanded. He did it all.” The Message

I started with the love seat. After measuring, I tipped it forward. I slid it to the doorway. I got 3 inches through but it would not go past the bi-fold door.

That door has to come off. I got out some tools, but the screws wouldn’t budge. That will have to wait.

Oh well, at least I could roll up the rug that was partly underneath it. I slid the love seat back and moved on to the buffet.

I took the drawers out and stacked them in Derek’s former bedroom. I took everything out of the dining room. And took the pictures off of the walls.

The table is really heavy. I crawled under it and tried to free one corner of the rug, pushing up with my back. It wouldn’t budge. That will have to wait, too.

I hit the shower.

Am I the only one who tries to do everything myself?
