Yes, that’s a retaining wall. I will never look at one the same again. This past week, I was one of 13 people selected to be on a court case. And this case was all about a retaining wall. A retaining wall that failed and a man that lost his house. We had to decide who’s fault it was – his, the builder, or the designer. And how much money to award the man if we decided it was under 50% his fault.
It was quite an experience. It left me emotionally drained every night. I missed my husband and I missed my son. But nonetheless, it was a good experience. I was able to share my faith and hopefully be a shining light for Jesus.
My lesson learned was that you are to make the most out of EVERY opportunity. The first 2 days, I was negative and quite frankly pissed I had to be there. But then after hearing more of the case and God speaking to me through quiet time –
I realized God told me I should make the most of this opportunity.
And so my perspective changed and I did make the most of it. I was praying a simple prayer a lot. “Less of me, more of you”…
So thankful for another awesome lesson learned from my abba father.
