My Bucket's Got a Hole in It!

"Well, my Bucket's Got a Hole in It. Yeah, my bucket's got a hole in it." For those of you not familiar with that fine classic, it's a line out of a Hank Williams, Sr. song. I'm humming it this morning because we have a problem with our well. Started late yesterday. We use a jagger pump to jet the water out of the ground and for some reason it's just not getting enough air into the ground. So Hubby is home to see about it. But now he's missing a day in the oilfield and the pay that goes with it. But that's life. Thank God he has a job to miss! I had a Million things to do today, and this has me in a holding pattern, waiting to see if he needs a hand with something or a parts runner. Want to pass along what I thought was a clever idea. (Once in a blue moon I get one.) I picked up two of those super cheap disposable cameras out at Wally World. I gave one to each of the kids to take and make pictures of school friends and what have you before school ends. Great way for them to have a little end of the school year fun. And will get them in a whole lot less trouble than water guns!

Moving right along to my second journal mention. This is Jana's everybody said I should write a journal, journal. Jana is a working wife and mother. She seems to be more materialistic than I and she uses some language I would not use. But she has a quick, sharp wit and can sure put a funny spin on a story! She seems to post every week or so, and won't fill your mailbox with alerts. (lol) And Last but not least, our devotional thought on Anger/speech. In Genesis 44:18 we read the words of Judah when Joseph's brothers were caught leaving Egypt with the money and silver cup Joseph had planted on them. "...Be patient with me for a moment, for I know you can doom me in an instant...." It takes only and instant to become angry, but in that instant we can do irreparable damage to those around us and even our own selves. Be patient. Be slow to anger. I pray that God blesses everyone who passes this way today with a fresh, new dose of patience.

    I hope that you fix that well problem. Do you have pictures of it? I think that is so cool, we never see anything like that here in Miami.  *Louise*

    I enjoyed your latest entries.  That Sunday sounded wonderful.  Some days just are perfect aren't they?  It always surprises me to hear about kids getting out of school this early, but down South, they do, up here its not until June 23rdish.
