The veil is finished

My resolution of the week,"finish the veil," has been completed, and it isn't even last minute. :-DWhat is seen through the frontAnd the back... could be worse.
You can see the prongs near the corners on the top, that hold the veil up.

Well we cleared 1.5 acres of our land this week, now we have room to fly our rc planes, baseball, etc.

One more thing finished!

The "recap"

Well this is the time to do "new year devotions" and recap the past year, so I thought I might as well recap this year's project. I began thinking it would be cool to recreate Bible structures or scenes about mid February. By March I had determined to design Solomon's Temple, and had begun the design process, which lasted about a month. Ever since then I have scavenged all necessary white and yellow pieces from my collection, sold many lego minifigs on eBay for funding, and bought many many orders from bricklink (the eBay of Lego). Buying Lego with money made from selling Lego, has taken the rest of the year and will continue (and hopefully come to a merciful end) in 2009. The result has been observed as many pieces have come together. Currently, there are less than 20 different piece types left to order. The interior walls have gone up, the Holy of Hollies is all but finished, and much much more has been accomplished. I thank those who have given their constant support, and ask for prayer that I not get discoraged when faced with the cost that remains (the last orders are rather large). I hope you enjoyed 2008 and have a wonderful 2009, and many years to come.

Don't stop building,
