Roofers working with Hot Asphalt
Asphalt On our Clothes – A true story
my book Rescue the Stories book Two
Our young neighbor girl stood
at my front door and asked if she could walk with us to school.I invited her into the house and gathered my
brood so we could all walk together.
As I looked at our little
friend, I asked her, “Is your daddy a roofer?”
She looked up at me and said,
“Yes, how did you know?”I told her,
“Our daddy is a roofer too, and we mothers just know some things.”
The truth was I knew, because
one look at the blouse she was wearing, and I could see a tiny black dot of
Her mother had the same
problem in her laundry that I did.Although I was very careful to wash my husband’s clothes separately and
hang them on the line, it was inevitable that a speck or two of asphalt was
deposited and hidden in the washing machine.It would then be transferred unknowingly to other clothing.
Energine Spot Remover was the
chemical of choice to remove asphalt from my washer, and it often worked on
clothing, but it did not always remove everything.
More than once, I took out my
“Tri-Chem” fabric paints and drew a flower on my girl’s dresses.The boy’s clothes seemed to escape the
asphalt, how I did not know.
One day the wife of our
roofer friend asked me how I dealt with the asphalt in my life.She informed me that she would get so angry
to the point of tears, and she simply could not cope with this problem.
I suggested that because
roofing work was our bread and butter, that we should accept asphalt as a
necessary evil and try to live with it.I told her that in life there are a lot of situations we must simply put
up with, and in our case asphalt was one of them.
Understand that I am not
suggesting that we put up with sin and filth in our lives, but as we age and
get older, there are many changes in body and lifestyle that can occur.In some cases we must put up with aching
joints, hair falling out and other signs that we are not as young as we use to
be. Loss of income: There are many ways we can learn to become skilled in saving money and
stretching our dollars.
Loosing a spouse, by death or
divorce can bring unwanted anguish and unplanned change, and even anger,
depression and despair.
With God’s guiding hand, He
can facilitate what ever changes are ahead and He can smooth the progress, no
matter what are our circumstances.
You are not alone.Many are experiencing similar
situations.One thing we must always
remember is that God has promised to never
leave us or forsake us.
