My plan for today did not go as I intended.  I had an agenda--a carefully planned agenda with no down time included until late evening.  The day began as planned with walking the dog, shortly thereafter it completely fell apart.  Water began to pour from the ceiling in my laundry room and I went into overdrive.  THIS was NOT in my plan!  

Placing a mop bucket under the leak, I began to consider where the water could be coming from.  There was only one answer, I had to crawl up in the attic.  My vow to stay off ladders had to be cast aside in the haste of needing to stop the leak.  Up the attic stairs I go.

Perhaps you are better than me at figuring these things out, but all I see is the white pipes over to the right and no water.  Time to call the professional.  If you know anything about plumbers, you KNOW they are difficult to run down when you have an emergency.  BUT, I have a friend!!!  One call to my friend, Philip who is the office manager for one of our local plumbers and he sends two great guys to my rescue.  He laughed and said, "It's good to know people who know people in high places."  YES!  The beauty of living in a small town is if you don't know someone to call in emergency, someone you know will know someone to call.  

My day might have been ship wrecked, but it also did not end up being a total disaster.  All because I know someone I can call when the rain (water) starts pouring.

So--though I did not have direct contact with the plumber, I did have a friend who had direct contact.  So the plumber was once removed--and I was only able to get help because my friend stepped in for me.

I have GOOD NEWS--NO---GREAT NEWS for you.  With God, we have a direct pipeline.  No need for any go between, we can go directly to him.  When your day falls apart, when your plan goes awry, when the ceiling is falling in--God is ready and waiting for your call.  YOU KNOW THE GUY!

Because He has inclined His ear to me,
 Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.
Psalm 116:2


  1. Once again, a fantastic analogy, Lulu! Yes, we can be thankful that we have a direct line to God, and can call on Him in our time of need.
    Blessings to you!

    1. AMEN, My Friend! He’s waiting for our call!
