You guessed it. It broke down. Yes when we had our heat wave!
Now everybody knows from all the advertising in the mail. They cost 5, 6, 7000.00 dollars to replace.
Well our special cute little unit is over 30 years old, maybe even 40 years. I don't think that the repairman was even born yet.
So Pam and I decided to wait a little while before taking the financial dive into the pool of poverty, just so we could have it down to 85 degrees instead of the blistering 99+ predicted.
But it gets a little redundant telling everyone who comes to visit why it is so extra warm in the house. So we decided to go ahead and take the dive.
But first comes prayer. "Oh Lord you know how hot our house really is.Could you possible help us out with a small repair bill instead of the tsunami just waiting to take over our life?"
Now don't be surprised! God answered that prayer. It was a great answer. Instead of paying the expected five or six grand it was less than 100 dollars.
We were extra delighted. Oh my goodness. God once again came through just when things are expected to heat up again!
So now I am asking myself this question. WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO PRAY.
Look at all the blood,sweat and more sweat We could have avoided.
I think there must be some kind of a spiritual lesson in here somewhere?
