Almost but not quite

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

The furnace installer came yesterday and had just started his
work to remove the old furnace when he took the call from
the young minister here in town. The furnace at the parsonage
was throwing flames whenever the fan was running. He felt
so bad but we asssured him we would still have heat but
the young family had no other way to keep warm. So he took
the furnace over to their house and ordered us another one.
I have patience and I am warm. Plus, I do not have 2 young
children in my house. I know it was the right thing to do.
The weather is to turn rainy and cold on Thursday with snow
for the weekend. We have enough wood to burn for at least
a month. The new furnace will be here long before that.
We had a very busy day and I have so many projects started
that need to get done before the weekend. DH is gone tomorrow
so I hope to have a quiet day, just pushing paper and computer keys.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for stopping by. HUGS!

    Bless you for doing that. Sometimes it is better to be able to help others - especially when you know you are ok and won't go cold. I am sure that family is appreciative of what you did and with what it sounds like, you might have even saved their lives.

    Putting others before yourself is so powerful. Just as we take photos of precious moments, your actions are seen and recorded. Your bread has been cast upon the waters. emoticon

    What you did was the right thing to do, but it was also very kind of you. I am happy that the young family now has proper heat with no chance of a dangerous fire. emoticon

    emoticon You did a very kind deed and need to be Thanked! Not everyone would have given up their new furnace to someone else in need, even though they were in a bad situation. So my hat is off to you!
