Our son is working on a long term project. A 1964 Ford Falcon...and it needed a TON OF MAN HOURS TO COMPLETELY RESTORE THIS THING TO ITS GLORY DAYS. This is his "Senior Project". The goal was to pick a project as a freshman/sophomore (that would take an epic amount of time!) so by the end of your Senior Year would be complete. The only requirement is that it needed to be in an area of your hobby or an occupation that you may want to venture into as a post grad.
He loves restoring stuff...
This is the "before" snapshots...
THIS IS THE TEAR DOWN...
here goes the primer coat...
AND THEN IT TURNS INTO A PRETTY SWEET
By the time his Junior Year rolls around...it will be finished!
THE PAINT JOB LOOKS AWESOME!!!!
He has put so much time-$-and effort into this
I can't wait to fly down the road
with him-at in the drivers seat...
seeing the joy of a job
well done all over the face
of our really cool teenager.
The car has got a long way to go
before it hits the road.
It still needs
But, ladies..when it does get road worthy-WATCH OUT!
Aren't we all like this project?
The before picture is pretty tough...
the tear down is even tougher.
But we have a God that sees
the Cherry Red Hot Rod
that he created us to be.
It takes a lifetime.
It takes work.
It takes vision.
It takes the skillful hands of our Heavenly Father
who knows what is best!
He created our beginnings
even before the world began...
and sees our ending
and everything in the middle
He wants us to be different-to be noticed not for all the shine and the glam... or for all of the hard work we have done...
but he wants us to be a witness of what
GOD HAS DONE TO RESTORE US!
INSIDE. AND. OUT.
THAT IS THE GOSPEL OF JESUS!!
AND ONE DAY...
We will hear those words...
Not because we did such a bang up job
at fixing our own life...
but because we made much
of The One
who Restores the Broken.
