Actually I am not put off by a long list of parts and page upon page of instructions on how to assemble. I rather enjoy the process. Fodder for my OCD at its best! I methodically counted parts and sorted them into a logical order and then followed each page of instruction - checking it all off as I finished. I might say there is a great deal of satisfaction in a job well done.
NOW there is always more than one way to skin a cat! I am sure I probably could have gotten it all put together sooner or later--even without following the instructions. There is something extremely satisfying with knowing you did it the right way and there are not extra parts floating around.
So it is with the Great Flood of 2017. Once the waters recede, the rebuilding will begin. As I learned last year, there is a system in how this has to be accomplished. It is best to follow the logical plan for first tearing it all out and then rebuilding. It is a slow methodical process and to complicate you are one of tens of thousands trying to get it all done.
It will be a trial of patience, strength, and courage which would try the strongest. Patience and timing are all important and following the plan. For now--pray--donate if you can--and wait for the call. To best help--we should all be patient and wait to follow the instructions.
