A Substitute Musician for Worship and A Home Emergency

The blog post I just finished and intended to post today with pictures and information regarding damage to my home will have to wait.

I just received a call from the builders telling me they are conscious of the seriousness of my home crisis. So instead of the previous date for inspection, scheduled for May 8th, they have arranged for the inspector to arrive this Sunday.

I am a poor piano substitute for the church organist every third Sunday when his day job requires him to work. I am supposed to play for him this Sunday. I talked to the pastor to let him know that the inspectors are flying in from other states, and I am waiting to hear whether they will be arriving at my home in the morning or afternoon. I am hoping that they will be here in the afternoon, but I need to be here regardless of the hour.

I would appreciate your prayers as I await the inspectors visit — many thanks.

    I think it is indeed an answer to prayer that the inspectors are coming early, and I will ask for an afternoon appointment. This is a very good sign that they are coming earlier!! Continued prayers for a complete and thorough job!!

    Shocking news!
    Especially just back from your vacation.
    Pray for you and the inspectors, hopefully not a major issue.
    Keep the faith and trust in our Lord and Savior.
    GOD Bless!

    Thank you, Richard. It is a major issue — and next Tuesday, God willing, I will post the photos to prove it. Right now — I need to decompress a bit! Love to you & Nadine.

    Thank you, Mike — I am thankful that they have moved the date for inspection to Sunday. Once it has been inspected they can put a tarp over the roof to keep rain & critters out. Pictures on Tuesday next.

Thank you for sharing these wonderful memories, and keep sharing them, save them and compile them in a journal to share with your grandchildren. Beautiful job!

    John — I am a bit confused — what book are you talking about? The blog post you put your comment on, was about an emergency at my home. I would love to know what book you were referring to. Thanks!
