God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good!
This morning Michelle and I were running around packing and making final preparations for our trip to the Holy Land. When you’re a homeowner, you want to make sure that everything is in good working order before you leave. Our two boys will be home, as well as my sister, Wendy, and, of course, Nancy.
As we were checking our water system just minutes before leaving, my son John discovered a leak in our chlorinator. It was leaking directly onto an electrical plug which is never a good thing. We moved into our home about a year ago. As God would have it, the previous owner had the spare part that I needed to fix the unit. Had he not left it when he moved, I would have been up a creek without a paddle! I could never have gotten that part on short notice, and certainly not within minutes of leaving for the airport. It took me about 10 minutes to fix the problem, and now we can leave knowing that everything is OK.
Funny…God knew a year ago that I would need that obscure part on this very day. I’m taking this as the first sign that we are in for a very special trip! I’ll check in from Israel soon!
