Showers of Blessing

The pictures are in reverse order. Finished to the beginning. I will get them rearranged when I have another moment.

Today we were blessed with showers, or some might call it a flood. Whichever - it was just what we needed. We had our tank dug out and enlarged. Then we built a dock. Now the Saturday that we started the dock was the coldest and windiest day of the spring . The wind chill was in the low 30s. Greg, Rick and I looked like we were headed to the ski slops. On Sunday when Rick and I worked it was much nicer day. Monday when we worked it was beautiful. We have been praying for a hard rain since we put the last piece of pipe in. We put tires in for one kind of fish, and Rickie made two trees out of 5 gallon paint buckets, pcv pipe and concrete for another type of fish. Both of these looked funny in a dry tank. We have had two little showers that did nothing for our tank, then Wednesday God blessed us with 6 1/2 inches that not only filled the tank, but let it run over so that we could even see how the runover would work and the position of the dock in relationship to the water. We are pleased with our project and very thankful for the showers of blessings.


  1. Incase anybody was wondering, yes it was the coldest day of the year when we built that thing!

    but it was a ton of fun

  2. I like that yall went out and bought official construction outfits before building the dock... Greg's hat especially
