“Just as each one has received a gift,
use it to serve one another
as good stewards of the varied grace of God.”
(1 Peter 4:10, NET)
The “gift” noted in the verse above is referring to spiritual gifts. However, the principle of being good stewards is seen throughout the New Testament. We want to be good stewards of that which the Lord has provided and be able to serve those ministries to which we feel Him leading us. Damaging His resources on loan to us in the process is not what we want to do!
When exiting Lake Retreat Camp in WA last month, the trailer took an unexpected dip during a rather tight turn onto the road from the camp. The stomach sickening sound from the truck bed was not welcome to our ears! A quick inspection noted only cosmetic damage, but it was still sad to see. While driving to our next project, we were hoping our son who loves to restore old cars and trucks, would be able to help.
Thankfully, Sean was able to remove most of the dents and straighten the bent railing. A new bed railing top provided a nice clean look to the truck. We are thankful for Sean’s help and thoroughly enjoyed the extra time we have been able to spend with him and his son while working on these projects.
Slide Mechanism Update
Last week we wrote about the failure of our bedroom slide mechanism. We also posted on Monday about our near-miss collision at an intersection as we were out hunting for parts. When we started our parts search we prayed that it would become obvious if we were to proceed with the repair.
That door for us to repair was definitely closed. We could not find the needed replacement screws! Then we called the RV dealer from whom we bought our trailer. Usually, they have a 6-8 week backlog. However, the service department was able to get us in next week! This dealer’s service department has always done good work and we can stay there with hookups (water and electricity) for as long as we need to!
God is good … all the time! 🤠 🤗
