Tom Sawyer ?

I have been going into some foreign territories ever since I have come home.
My lovely parents and my dear brother indulge me in my idiosyncracies.
The other day I declared to my family that I wanted to do some cement plastering work.
My parents showed me where the cement and all the paraphernalia connected with it were kept and my brother patiently showed me the proportion of sand  to the cement I should use with all the dynamics required.
I made three portions of one and half cups of cement to the proportion of sand  and did a two hour job on what I had put my mind to.
Every morning I sprinkle water on my handiwork.My father tells me it has to be done till the cement stops absorbing water ,after which I can go crazy with a brush and the colour of my choice.
I might sound a bit like Tom Sawyer,but I enjoyed the process thoroughly.
I have just finished the book of Ezra and have shifted to Nehemiah in the last few days,so it all makes sense.
I was tired at the end of the day but felt absolutely thrilled at the finished job.
I am neither Ezra nor a Nehemiah.I do not have a grand agenda or a nobel burden.
I have  that joy of having made another small jump into the unknown.
I also sleep well at the end of the day.
Doesn't the Word say,'The Lord gives His beloved sleep.'
I must be doing something right.
