Passions Heart

      For those of you that havenít heard our house caught fire on the 16th. due to faulting wiring. We knew the house was old so I donít want to cast blame on anybody as I donít know who it was that installed it. The fire department wanted to cut the lines and I couldnít / wouldnít let them. We have livestock and I knew they would have to have water and if the lines were cut there would be no power for the well. Reluctantly they left it on. It was quite a shock to find that there wasnít any electricians who wanted to take on the job. Electricians are getting about $95 dollars an hour in these parts and most are more than happy to take your money. Weíve called everyone in the telephone book which amounts to less than 50. (most are out for the holidays and lets face it with less than fifty listings, thereís just not any electricains to speak of in these parts.) One Guy came out and told us he would be right back and have something up and running for us the same day. (never returned)

      Well what it boiles down to is, Iím asking for a little prayer and that God will guide these old hands and fingers and I can get at least the nursery up and running for Rosemary. My father was a contractor and Iím well aware of the damage and the risk of turning things on and possibly causing another fire, and even though itís about 10? below 0? Iím sure I can and know how do it not that I want to, and yes we are covered....... but...........thereís just no one here but me.

best friends best finds, (lucky) dale

Speaking of ghosts, wouldn't you know here comes mine again...

You're most definitely in my prayers.  I have worked with cow-calf herds and know it to be a tricky business at best - one just doesn't let them "get by"...

So you've got my heart, to God's ear!

What is inside your heart will carry you through this solution.

Lighting candles for you and your family.

Oh my, I'm so sorry to learn of your fire, but thank God no one was hurt.  I'm terrified of fooling around with electrical as I only know how horrible the consequences can be if done wrong.  Right now, I'm asking our good Lord to watch over you and help you get things in order for the sake of your livestock, but moreso for your own safety.

God bless,

I am sorry that I didn't learn of your trials and tribulations sooner. I could have been praying for you all of this time ~ and every prayer can certainly help.

Well, I'm a prayin' NOW!
