When Life Gives You Lemons-Make Lemonade!

You know how everything always happens at the worst times? Well, we had that happen this past week...We were in revival and had the evangelist and wife staying in our home, of course, and so therefore I fixed all our meals for the 4 of us. Well, everything was going pretty well when one morning I was about to fix a breakfast casserole, and my oven decided it didn't want to stay on and work any longer. Talk about frustration and panic! LOL Not quite panic, but definately frustration! Anyhow, to make a long story short, Bro Bobby Garis and Ron came over to look it over, and discovered it would have cost nearly the same amount to fix it as it would to get a new one; so the church decided they would get us a new oven. However, that couldn't happen until the NEXT day, and I had an evangelist to feed TODAY! LOL So... our gracious neighbors (Sis Barbara and Arlene) let me borrow their oven for our supper that day. The next afternoon they delivered a BEAUTIFUL brand new stove to the parsonage. It's the kind with the ceramic stove top so I am still learning how to care for it and use it! :0) But we thank our church people for acting so quickly on our behalf; and rescuing their preacher's wife from her state of panic on how to cook for her company without an oven and stove! ;0) (I do have a crock pot so that helps, however, there are some things you just need a stove/oven for!) :0)

Here's the beautiful new stove! Yay!
