Snow has fallen - Praise the Lord for answered prayer
Well it snowed most of yesterday so much so that school was closed today and we got to have a day off. I thought it would give me some much needed time to do some housework. I opened the curtains by the front door and the curtain pole dropped off. I then tidied up and was about to start vacuuming but the vac wouldn't turn on. I switched it off, tried again and this time is exploded, made a loud popping sound and sparks came out of the vac. Needless to say I got quite a fright but at least it didn't burst into flames and not as great a fright as the one last week. My gas bill came in and it was a whopping £995.00 a very near heart attack when I read the bill. Turns out the gas company have been estimating my bills for the last 2 years (I know I should have checked but I've been with them 35 years and they've always got it right - up 'til now that is) and yes I have to pay it. I text my friend Ri to tell her about the curtain pole and the vac. She phoned me and said I needed to put my feet up and have a cup of tea and that she'd been and got a new vac and Christmas and would I like her old one. What an immediate answer to prayer as I had just said to the Lord, "I'm gonna need a new vac Lord". It's true he takes care of our needs. I'm not worried about the bill, it will get paid somehow even if it is in installments and the curtain pole is resting on top of the parts that hold it until my son can give me a hand to fix it. I have to admit the snow does look nice but I'm glad I'm indoors don't think I fancy building a snowman today - his head might fall off.
