Day 2- Hard Working Man

One of the things I am so thankful for is that Nathan is not only handy, but he works so hard to provide for our family.  Whether fixing a tire at the shop or finishing our basement, he is not afraid to get his hands dirty.  Being the 3rd generation in his family business that was started in 1952 by his grandfather, he takes his role very seriously and works long, hard hours whether its steaming hot like it has been this summer, or freezing cold in the dead of winter.  And he is passing that work ethic along to the 4th generation!  There is no place our boys would rather be than at the shop helping their dad and grandpa.  Both of them are convinced they will work there when they are old enough.

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.  Colossians 3:17
