Mid-December of 1995, we invited everyone in our Bible study to a Christmas party at our house. Our new addition was complete and we were excited to show everyone the finished work. I was so happy the house was finally tidy and organized. Our days of living with drywall dust, sawdust, wood chips, and tools all over the place were finally over. Anyone who’s lived through home remodeling will know what I mean. Living under a construction zone is extremely tiresome. The kids were very excited about the party and willing to help. We put up our Christmas decorations and got ready for the party.
