A Leaky Roof.....

Remember the rain I wrote about yesterday? Well, I woke up last night to the sound of my husband clomping around (at least that's the way it sounded at 2:00 a.m.) in our attic. I jumped up to see what was the matter. He told me that all the constant rain we've been having had caused our old tin roof to spring a leak and he was up there patching it and putting something under it to catch the water so it would stop dripping through the ceiling of our living room. I went and checked out the weather situation on my computer and found we were under a flash flood warning until 3:00 a.m. The warning went on to say that we had had between 1 and 2 inches of rain in the past hour and were expecting another 1 to 2 inches of rain in the next hour. Wow! I was just glad that it was a steady pouring rain instead of stormy windy rains. After having done all we could do to remedy the leaky roof, we both went back to bed and went to sleep.

This morning when I started thinking about it I remembered this verse from Proverbs 27: 15..."A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike." The word contention means: to argue; to dispute; to struggle; or to cause strife. A good reminder for me today to try and NOT be that kind of a woman! And I assure you....I DO need reminding of that more often than I care to admit! I know how annoying that constant drip, drip, drip of a leak can be and I don't want to be an annoying person. Instead I hope that today I can be pleasant and easy to be around.

I hope for you a good day with the Lord!

May God bless you....

Powerful! I have goose bumps. I love the rain on our metal roof, but the drips, yes, they do sound like me much of the time!! ;)
