Blessings from God come in many sizes, shapes and fashions.
Several weeks ago we noticed a brown spot in the ceiling of our garage - we knew we had a leak in the roof. With the help of a flash light Leon was able to determine where it was located.
Of course, we were not happy as it had been about 10 years ago we put a completely new roof on the house. We thought the dollars would be leaving our savings account for sure.
Anyway, called a repair man to come out and take a look. He came, crawled upon the roof, and discovered the problem. The head of one of the roofing nails had worked its way up and had worn a hole in the shingle - which in turn allowed the rain to enter. He said the charge would be $20.00 to repair it and wanted to know if we had any of the shingles left from 10 years ago. Well, we did at one time - but had used them to shingle the top of a large wishing well that stands guard in our back yard.
Well, we had a decision to make...buy a bundle of shingles that would match what was presently on the roof....or go with what ever the repair man could find and use that. Since the repair job would be on the back side of the house we opted for what ever he could find.
He called yesterday...he had found a brown one and it matches ours (or at least you can not tell the difference from the ground level). He came out later in the afternoon and installed it.
You know that man could have told us all kinds of stories about repairing the roof - but it appears he is honest and trustworthy...that is a blessing for us.
We tipped him an extra $10.00 for going to the trouble of finding us a matching color...that is a blessing too.
You know God does bless us in so many ways...the small ones are important too. We need to always give him thanks for them - large or small ones!
