Sense of Humour?
I am convinced God has a sense of humour, but I am not sure if today is evidence of it or not. Having posted about Interruptions yesterday, I'm thinking it just may be!
A few weeks ago the fridge started falling apart. Last night the freezer started falling apart and, just after I discovered that, my very necessary glasses broke. They are (temporarily I am sure) super-glued and I am at least able to use them. I worked hard last night at maintaining an attitude of thankfulness, but today pushed me to the brink when...
the washer FULL of VERY sudsy towels QUIT!
Okay, to say it quit may be misleading...it actually has a faint grinding sound that indicates it still has a little bit of some kind of life left in it, but for all intents and purposes it is useless.
So, I am happy to report, I just spent 1 1/2 hours rinsing and re-rinsing and wringing out a washer full of towels. I must say I am so thankful that Third Day was available to serenade me and I have the assurance that I just completed a killer forearm workout! I would have had one of the kids take a picture of me perched on a stool in the middle of the spa tub, but I wasn't exactly sure how to determine what my best angle would have been at that point!
I have prayed for many of you while I worked and I now have a renewed, very keen, sense of appreciation for my "servant girls". While they are obviously under the weather, I am praying they make a speedy recovery...hopefully right after the appliance guy leaves this afternoon.
Now, if only the appliance company had an on-site optometrist, I could knock out all my troubles in one fell swoop! Guess I'll have to make a treck to Wal-Mart for that one, though.

Thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.
