Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

OH GREAT! (grate)

OH GREAT! (grate)

There are two of these storm drains
directly outside our home...
one on either side of the road.

Along with performing their essential duty
they also act like collectors of debris.

It is amazing how fast these drains
clog with leaves, twigs, grass, etc.
The worse is when we get heavy,
long lasting rain throughout the night.

Awakening to a river of water
flowing down the driveway toward the garage
and a flooded street is a real mess.

Removing the debris from under all that water
isn't any fun either particularly when it is still
raining heavily.

Forewarned, a little work now
can save a major cleanup later.

As my dad used to say (quoting Ben Franklin),
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

And don't forget your prayers...

Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you
while you may be found;
surely when the mighty waters rise,
they will not reach him.
You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.”

- Psalm 32:6,7 NIV

What you capture and the camera with which you capture it Larry is amazing. God's given you His eyes to see for sure. (I just wish He'd give me better eyes to see your robot ID combo below. I don't think I've ever see a more difficult one).
