We have a little problem with our washing machine.
And a problem with our dishwasher.
I can’t haul all the dishes to the laundromat, thank GOD!, so I have all the clothes that are left after a day and a half of doing laundry.
3 really large loads and 2 smaller or regular sized loads.
I haven’t done laundry at the laundromat in quite a while. Dishes are being done by hand right now until I figure out what in the world I am going to do about that.
Isn’t life grand??
Hubby and I are going to look at some dishwashers tonight and see if that is even a consideration. Well, it is a consideration, because I NEED a dishwasher. Ok, really, I don’t NEED a dishwasher, but it makes my life much easier!
I am not doing all the dishes, no. All are taking turns so I don’t really NEED to get one right now. It can wait a little bit if needed.
Or I could just pay another $200 to get the less than 3 years old one fixed again. Total paid then including the end of January repair will be about $500. But then it should work fine for a while. Maybe..
At least, I can hang out at the laundromat. It took just 15 min for the large loads to run! 15 Minutes!! The other 2 are more normal times, but there are 2 loads running at the same time. On a good note, all my laundry that I have been working on for a day and a half should be done in another hour.
Makes me almost not want to do anything about the washer.
So what do I take out of all of this current drama? How do I tie this into some great spiritual truth?
Romans 8 says there is nothing that can separate me from the love of my God. NOTHING. I am victorious because I Believe in Him. I will continue to declare the victory in my life.
Romans 8 also says God will use ALL things to work together for GOOD for those who love God and I do love God.
Who can be against us? If God is for me, who can be against me?
This season will pass, that I know for sure. When? I just don’t know. I cannot tell the future. But I do know that these things are annoying and troubling.
My God is bigger. My God will prevail. I just have to declare it and believe that He will take care of these things.
And in the meantime, go look for a deal on dishwashers.
