Silver Linings?

It's been one of those weeks, well actually longer than a week.  Everything is falling apart.  First, our renters moved out without notice leaving a rather large hole in our income.   We went out to the farm to see how many things needed repairing, and were a little overwhelmed.  After several months of continuing to find things and dwindling out savings we finally thought we were almost through, not so.  Today we found out that the inside and outside heat pump needs to be replaced, another MAJOR expense.  To top it all off my old faithful sewing machine of twenty-five years died in the middle of a project.  When it rains it pours!

Now for the good news.  We are alive, full and dry.  We have a job, a home and a wonderful family.  Although our savings is depleted, we hopefully will get a tax return to help pay for the new units.  This is just another exercise in faith, and God is faithful.
