I can't stop …

So we left our renovation site (home) for our Christmas break and went down to Georgia. Obviously, though, construction is now in our blood. What did we do for most of our break? Yes, you guessed it, we built stuff. Cindy's mom was in definite need of shelves for her collection of books. They were all so improperly stored in many cardboard boxes. So with the very generous loan of tools from extended local family and lots of work, the books are now properly displayed and stored on her new bookcase, featuring 20 fixed shelves and 15 adjustable shelves, in her new reading room. We did not have time to do the finishing touches, so we will have to go down to add molding and to paint the adjustable shelves. For the meantime, though, we rest content that the books have a proper resting place.

You're causing me to covet... :)

Are you coveting the books or the bookcase. Don't covet the books. Margaret might enjoy them, but I do not think you would find much of interest. As for the bookcase ... well, if I really loved my elder I would build you one, but since I have yet to complete the last two projects that Margaret asked me to do for her, I'll just let you continue coveting. Sorry.

I'm pretty sure that when Paul said elders were worthy of "double honor", he was specifically thinking of building bookshelves for them.

Alan, perhaps you need to implement some church discipline in this case... ;)

I'm thinking bookcases on both sides of the fireplace or on the whole wall of the bonus room would be great....:)
