The New Home

Jesse and Anna decided to spend their first year of marriage in an apartment. Recently they purchased a house and closed a few weeks ago. The Maxwell crew helped them move in. What a special time that Saturday was—some packed and loaded at the apartment, others cleaned at the new place (including some of the kids), and lots of littles skipped around, exploring their aunt and uncle’s home.

Jesse rented a truck for the move, and friends from their church provided more manpower and vehicles with carrying capacity. The move went quickly, being completed by lunch. In the afternoon, some stayed to unpack at the house and others returned to the apartment to clean it.

Many hands make light work!

Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen”
(2 Peter 3:18).

  1. How wonderful for Jesse & Anna to be able to purchase their new home! I always love seeing how well you all work together to help out with whatever needs to be done. You are certainly a blessing to one another and an encouragement to your blog readers.

  2. I always think of the aphorism “many hands make light work” whenever I see your home/project-related posts 🙂

    Congratulations to Jesse and Anna on their new home!

    1. Yes, it is very true. When I see that pile of mulch bags at my mom’s house each year and then how quickly, with everyone working, the project is accomplished – amazing. And the same for the move. You educated me, Katie. I had to look up the word “aphorism.”

  3. How wonderful to see everyone working together and helping Jesse and Anna move. We had to move house when my daughter was only 2 weeks old. Our families and church friends rallied around and we were inundated with help. I don’t know how we would have coped without them. The Lord is good. And it was an amazing witness to our healthcare team, neighbours and acquaintances to see how hard everyone worked and how much they cared about our family. I’m sure Jesse and Anna’s new neighbours have already clocked that there is ‘something different’ about them. So many people struggle along in our selfish, self seeking society.
