Lost Credibility

When we moved into this house, it was 2 years old and had a sizable "ding" in the gyproc in front of where the car sits. For years he has teased me, suggesting I did that. No, the previous owner's "wife" did it and probably on purpose as the were divorcing!

Fast forward to March and I told R to cut down the string/tennis ball which was to show me how far I could pull into the garage - without dinging something. All has been going along fine til today - I pulled up too close and touched a laundry hamper sitting in front of my car (don't ask, another post). It has a metal back so groaned loudly when struck.

He just looked over and smiled at me - "Honestly, I really didn't put that big ding in the gyproc."

I will never be believed now.

You are a blessing in my life, Jean.
When I feel the LORD'S leading about writing something, I pray again and sleep on it. I'm sure this will not always be the order HE wishes, however, you always seem to be "there" encouraging.
Some of the transparency I'm called on to live or write out is difficult.
Your encouragement is like a ray of sunshine breaking through the clouds after the rain. So needed.
I love visiting "here" even if I don't say anything.
Your writing gives me that same feeling that Rosamunde Pilcher always did. It made me feel cozy, but it made me think "up" to a more sophisticated level.

You are a dear and I'm praying for you and him.

Blessings, love and hugs,
