Termites and water

Sometimes we just have to laugh.  We have many critters from snakes to ants to lizards to spiders to flying bugs and stink bugs and on and on.  Some times of the year we have begun to expect what will come based on the temperature and if it is raining or dry.  But sometimes we are shocked at what we find.  So, we just have to laugh and figure out what to do. 

This time we came home and there were termites building mansions everywhere.  They were around the door, in between the door and under our bath tub coming out the bottom and under the sink eating the entire under part of the counter top.

                                Then we run the water in the sink and this is what we get.

So, it reminds me of how much I used to not appreciate.  So much that was just another day.  So much that I did not talk to God about because it was just there.  Now, I am thankful for every day I take the car and return safely without the car breaking down.  Thankful every time we are not having the house fall apart because of termites.  Thankful every time we can filer and drink water and not get sick.  Thankful for safety and protection from theft and snakes.  Thankful for each day of health and for all that pray for us and support us financially. 

We are so blessed in spite of bugs, dirty water, power cutting off, car problems…  Thankful that we serve a God that is always faithful and keeps all His promises and He never fails and always loves us in spite of the days that we forget to thank Him. 

Hebrews 13:16-17  If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.  Focus on what matters and what is eternal, and you will complete your mission with success.
