Last Wednesday was one of those days when God used what looked like a disastrous situation to bless us so much. We had been living in the house for two weeks and an odor had started coming from the bathroom and as my Nano said – it’s not what you think it is. He suited up and proceeded with the excitement of someone who was about to embark on a wonderful adventure to crawl into that little nasty hole, literally covered in spider eggs, to explore the tiny crawl space under the house. Crawling on elbows and toes he inspected the pipes under the house to find multiple places where pipes were completely rusted through and water had been gushing under the house along with some other issues that I don’t completely understand. He came back out of that hole to give us the news that the kitchen sink, the shower and the washing machine were not in working order and the heads up that there was a possibility that our living situation could change soon. Long story short, after only a couple of days without a shower, or running water in the kitchen God perfectly and abundantly provided the means for getting the house in working order again. Nano was able to fix all of the utilities with the same excitement as He began with even though he had to push dead animals out of his way and dig a hole while lying on his belly – situations that he used to give us a good laugh. And all the while, inside the house above him, I was facing my own not nearly as difficult situations with so much discontentment. God used his attitude to work on my heart. Feeling so blessed to have working utilities and a husband who had such a sweet spirit about the whole thing. My Nano is a blessing. My God is gracious and good.
