Good morning, Gary has gone to the church to meet with some people about the sign that fell down in front of the church. Friday our son called to tell us that a check for $10,000 arrived in the mail from someone who does not go to our church. With the TV off and Gary gone my mind seems to do more thinking. Sometimes for me.... that can be a dangerous thing. lol
This morning I was thinking about our building that we built in 1997. The first thing that they had to make was the foundation. They were going to pour thousands of dollars worth of concrete that day. The clouds looked really bad and the workers did not know if they should pour the concrete. Concrete has to set-up for 12 hours!! The decision was up to me. :( I prayed about it and then told them to pour the concrete. There wasn't any insurance on that poured concrete. I remember sitting on a bench watching them pour and smooth out the cement. Looking up into the dark clouds wondering if I had done the right thing. All day the clouds looked like it was going to rain! I sat up that night waiting to see if the rain was going to come. It had to set-up until midnight!! Right at midnight heaven opened up and buckets of rain came down. Big rain! The insulation was getting wet! No roof yet, just sides. The next morning the contractor called and real hesitant, and said; "Janie, did you get any rain last night?" Yes we got 1 1/2 inches of rain, I told him. He was 25 miles from me and they got 2 1/2 inches of rain. He asked what time it rained and I told him midnight. Safe within minutes! I had to trust the Lord instead of myself with the choice that I made.
The Lord tells us that we need a good foundation or our house will crumble. The Lord is my foundation in all that I do. I trust Him with my life and everyday living. Do you have a good foundation in your life?
You are all in my prayers. Hope all of you have a blessed day. Love, hugs, and prayers, Janie
