The past two weeks have been…..well…..WET!! The rain has definitely begun!! So here is our story about the rain……
If you remember back to the beginning of this blog, one of our greatest concerns was having the house in the “open” framed in type stage, and having the rains beating down on our exposed wooden framework. Tami (I) was having a very difficult struggle with this while we waited through most of the dry summer to get to the point that we could even knock down the old house, and start excavating. Tony kept reassuring me that everything would work out, everything would be fine. In my mind, our struggle went something like this……(playing the part of Tami is Lucy VanPelt; playing the part of Tony is Snoopy)……….
So as we watched the sunny days disappear, Tony kept the faith (and prayed like crazy), and I struggled, but tried hard to believe him. He kept saying that the rains were not going to really start until it was weatherized (roof up, sideing on, windows installed.) So as the days passed and we really only got a little rain here and there, I started to keep the faith too. I’m not saying that the Lord kept most of the northwest Oregon regions without rain because of our need for a dry house…but I am saying that He has got awesome timing!! Because one day after the roof was up, the sideing on, and the windows were installed…the sky opened up and we have gotten a pond full of rain (literally, our pond is now full to the brim.)
Here is what it sounded like one morning in our shop (it has a metal roof) as the rains poured down…that is not static, and it was a hundred times louder in person…
So, YOU decide!!
