In the midst of these canning days we had another rain storm that came into our home this time. We had all the windows open and we were not home in time to close them. All carpeting had to come out as well as 2 new sets of mattresses needing to be purchased. All this was going to be done sooner or later anyway, but I guess sooner was what God wanted. Love God’s timing.
