The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those who are fully committed to Him 2 Chronicles 19:9a
Firstly on Friday, the gas bottle for the stove ran empty. My husband had a full bottle under the stairs and within a few minutes had brought it up to the kitchen, exchanged the old one for new and my cooking could continue.
The next day, I felt the heat in the lounge- cum-home office increasing steadily. When hubby came home from work, I asked him to check if the air conditioner was working. Our antiquated air-cooling systems are wall mounted units which you can read about here. Sure enough when he checked, he found that the fan belt had broken and no cold air was being emitted. He popped down to the storeroom in the yard where he keeps all sorts of spares and returned with a new fan belt. He quickly took off the covers, removed the broken part and replaced it with the new one, and our air-cooling system was up and running again.
On Sunday evening he stepped into the shower, turned on the tap and ... no water. He dressed again, went down into the courtyard where we have a pressure pump which pumps water up to our flat on the first floor. He did something there and within half an hour we had water in the flat again.
I’m not a DIY lady at all and don’t ever aspire to be. LOL! Yet God in all His wisdom knew that my husband would be out of town so all the problems occurred while I still had my incredibly capable man at home.
Praise the Lord!
Note: An update on the power situation/absentee night watchman: The latter has still not come home and the power is still on. What an awesome God we serve. Amen!
