It was windy here

We awoke yesterday morning to this sight:

This is actually the second time this has happened to us. Seven years ago another swingset blew over in a nighttime thunderstorm. Thankfully, both times our house was undamaged.

In the afternoon, Poochita and I went out to survey the damage.

Princess Bink was eager to have everything fixed right away and was perplexed when we explained that there was no "Swingset Repair Man" to call up.

Below is a favorite quote of mine and something I still need to work on. Even splintered playsets bring out the "Why, Lord??" attitude in me.

"Christian Contenment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracioius frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God's wise and fatherly disposal in every condition." (Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment)

I love those words, "God's wise and fatherly disposal"! Praise Him that He is gracious and compassionate and does not reward us according to what we deserve.
