What Happened Was...

Merry Christmas! I apologize for the delay in posting Part 3 of the series on revenge. Three days ago I got up early. I wrote Part 3. I saved Part 3. (Or so I thought.) It didn't save. And then my family arrived. 

What happend was: On the 4th of December I had a foundation repair on my home. Eighteen steel piers. Sixteen on the outside of my home. Two were drilled right through my bedroom floor. 

Yup. Two of those in my sweet room. From there it rolled out like this:

Eighteen Steel Piers.

Two in my bedroom.

Dust and mud everywhere.

Two broken sprinkler lines. 

One burst in the night.

One flood of water on the side of my house and up the street.

An emergency visit from a plumber.

The drying quit drying.

The water heater quit heating.

Drain and return water to Home Depot.

No hot water for one week.

No heat (heater) for two days.

Two gas leaks.

One in the attic. (heater)

One in the garage. (water heater.)

My blog--already WAY late, did not save.

And a patridge in a pear tree! (If I had the time, I'd create a song out of it because I think that would be funny!) 

The good news is that I am alive despite prolonged exposure to carbon monoxide. (Yay!)

My niece is visiting from Texas Tech. (Double Yay!)

I have extraordinary friends who supported me throughout every twist and turn. (Thank you, Jesus!)

AND most importantly:

"Unto to us a child is born."

"The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who lived in a land of gloom a light has shone."

"They name him Wonderful-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace."

(Isaiah 9) 


Merry Christmas!

(My black Lab, Jasmine, is in heaven now. I lost her to cancer a few years ago, but I love this picture. The yellow Lab is Hannah Banana. My divorce buddy and best friend!)

I'm aiming for Saturday to get back to blogging. Thank you for understanding. 

May the peace of Christ be with you throughout this Christmas Season and coming New Year.
