See second slide show below. 

The morning broke with clouds and very little sun. There is a light layer of ice on the pond outback. The ducks do not seem to mind, they have several little cubby holes in the bank that they gather in.  My house is warm and feels to good, I wonder how I can have water leaking out the side of it with out seeing it inside. Things are never exactly how they look.

Tracking the leak has not been a successful event. Five plumbers later, cut out sheet rock, trenches dug next to the slab out side... and we are waiting to hear back from a Leak Detector Company out of Whitehouse, Texas.  Mr Hubby was armed and ready. He spent time gathering the tools before cutting anything. He was careful to use protection as he took on the project.

His Sawzall and blades were ready and he tested it out. Then Silence Came.

I call to him hoping everything was okay behind the Closed Door.  He told me to come in and listen with him. 

He had removed the knobs from the shower and was shining a small flashlight down into the holes.  Neither of us could hear clearly water, only that distant echo of water running.  

He made the decision not to start ripping out the shower. I felt that was a good decision. Wait upon the Lord when in doubt of anything.   

This same was true with the painting above.  When I hesitated on colors, we moved it to the warming room from the studio.  I need 24-48 hours away from it to look at it with fresh eyes. 

Sometimes that is all it takes in life.  A fresh view of things to truly see what is in front of you.  Things are never as they appear before us. Our vision is always clouded by our brain in control of how to perceive what we are looking at.

Simply put, we have no control.  Wait upon the Lord.


“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” - 1 Corinthians 13:4-5
