The Plumber Man and God's Favor

The sound of a bath running and dishwasher going have never been so wonderful.

The Plumber Man came today and fixed the clog, found an unknown cracked pipe that he took time to repair, and got my new dishwasher working. Bless you, Plumber Man, bless you.

Plumber Man is the parent of one of Richie's players. I don't know Plumber Man's name, but he saved me and I am so grateful. Not only that, but it cost us under $30. We paid for parts only.

I am still in awe. Thank you, God.

You see, one of the reasons we waited so long to have the clog looked at professionally is that we didn't have the money to pay a plumber. So after ___ days (you don't think I'm really going to give away how many days it really was that I went without a shower do you?), it had to be done.

It could be easy to dismiss it as a parent getting in good with the coach or just a nice gesture, but I know otherwise. I know my Daddy God was taking care of me.

And Plumber Man may not know it, but God sent him our way. Thank you, Plumber Man and thank You, Lord.

*By the way, if you're local and need a plumber, have I got a recommendation for you...

I just never thought about what you were going through. PLEASE forgive me for being such a dunce. I mean, JoAnn, you could have showered at my house. You could have brought dirty dishes over. Or, Duh, I could have made you a meal. It just never sunk in what you were facing. I am sorry. You have to be more direct in just blurting out "Hey, head in the clouds, Clark, I need help...." I am usually good at picking up on these things but,a las, I missed it on this one. I am sorry.....(and I know that is not why you posted but I am admitting my insensitive clogdom...:o) so wrapped up in my own life. oh wait. we did not have a sewer for a couple days either did we? mmmmm....maybe I am off the hook? *grin*)

I'm soooo happy to read this post. I meant to ask you earlier about your clog situation and forgot. Praise God - under $30??!! Wow! Isn't it great to know that God even cares about clogged pipes? :)
