Now… it’s been school holidays this week .. and I took a week of annual leave - and exciting things - what did I do …. I spent the week painting our front fence…
Do you know I bought the paint 18 months ago … and have been psyching myself up to it since then?
Every day as I have gone in and out of our house - looking at the rust on the fence.
Our fence is wrought iron — and until this week it has been rusty… it is now lovely white.
It’s been a triumph of scraping away rust… and putting on primer… and now top coat... educating the boys on the difference between water based paints and oil based paints.
It’s been a really good time of family bonding… my wife Cathie and our two teenage boys out the front doing something together.
Anyway one of the things i did while spending all those hours on the house - was listened to the livestream of quite a bit of the Hillsong Conference.
I watched a bit of it online - but most of the time I was listening to it - and looking at the Paint Brush….
It has been really quite an extraordinary thing.
The main All Phones Arena….….. and on at least the last few nights of the week - they had people for the evening events - in overflow marquees and actually just out the front of the stadium watching the event inside on the big screen.
JOEL A’BELL is the lead pastor for Australia - for Hillsong Church… and he is on the line.
