We had to cancel youth Sunday night because of the wedding I was officiating. When we arrived home late, we found out that the youth actually did meet to do a service project. I talked during my sermon Sunday morning about giving a gift of grace to someone, a gift that will leave lifelong memories. They definitely took me up on my challenge.
They decided that Jennifer and I deserved to live in a gated community. They put time, thought, and effort into making that dream a reality. I felt like those families coming home after Extreme Makeover, Home Edition. I have put some pictures on here for you to see their work.
The youth (and Gary & Shane as adult volunteers) actually set two posts on either side of my driveway and then hung a locked cattle gate blocking the driveway. I’m sure my neighbors thought we were absolutely crazy for putting a farm gate across our driveway. I have to give it to the youth, that was definitely a first for me. I have been rolled, forked, and everything else you can think of, but never gated.
Luckily the posts were only set in sand, so I was able to remove them without too much work. But now I have a cattle gate in my front yard. Do you think these will sell on ebay?
