Ask God

ALONG WITH SUMMER'S END has come for many of us the shift into a higher gear of activity. The focus is on "getting back down to business." This resumption of work and hectic schedules can be a burden. But as I recently found—and as this issue explains—such changes can really be marked by vigor and renewal. With help from above.

In the final days of summer, my husband and I dedicated a week's vacation to tackling a long-neglected erosion problem on our property. The cost estimates of building a 45-foot-wide retaining wall were so high that we decided to do it ourselves. We ordered the needed 12 tons of stone and gravel, but the delivery truck couldn't dump right where we needed the supplies. Fortunately the teenage son of a friend was available to help move them the rest of the way.
