Can you Smell That?
Some people are more sensitive to smell than others.My husband is one of those persons.When our children were small, my hubby could
never change a diaper, or clean up after a dog accident.And that is the truth!Good thing he has a first-rate wife!
This particular morning my hubby was cooking breakfast on
our electric stove.Suddenly all the
lights went out and sparks flew, and our stove just quit!Out of the blue he could smell smoke.
Stepping outside to investigate the fuse box, he discovered
that the electric panel was on fire.Flames were shooting out and it appeared that our mobile was possibly
doomed to also catch on fire.
Keeping his wits about him, he quickly turned off the power
at the main pole.Next he grabbed the
hose and squirted water until all the fire was extinguished.
After turning the power back on, we discovered that a few
plugs in the house still worked, and by using extension cords, he was able to
get our refrigerator going.
A quick call to our contractor neighbor on his cell phone -
- gave us the name and number of a reliable electrician who showed up late that
afternoon.The electrician was able to
do some temporary work, and we were thankful that he gave us TV and computer
His promise to return in two days to replace the panel did
not come to pass, as apparently there were parts to order that were not
available locally.This left us for the
week end with temporary fixes and extension cords.
Again he did not return at the time promised, and we found
it necessary to leave for a dental appointment and go about our business.
Leaving him a note on the gate, and penning our three dogs
in their small yard; we left, as this would allow him to do his work unhindered
by curious animals.
After another no show, we called and left him a message stating
that we were wondering where he was.Well finally it all worked out and he arrived with a new panel and a
helper and did the installation pronto, and to our liking.We were pleased!
This reminded me to consider all the time we wait; expecting
the return of Jesus to happen soon.He
keeps putting us off for another day, another week, another year.
However as I read the signs of the times, I think that his
delay must have a good reason.
There still must be some sheep that need to get into the fold
