When water just sits on the ground rather than being absorbed that means the ground isn't thirsty any more. It doesn't want another drink. So why is it still raining? Why is God forcing the ground to drink? IDK. Maybe He's preparing us for another long-hot-dry- year? Or maybe He wants us to learn a slower pace life? Or maybe He wants Russell and I to put our plans aside and follow His lead?
I'm gonna go with all the above. I hope to heaven we do not have another dry year. I don't think any of the plants or trees or humans can survive it. And I really would love a slower pace life. I'm always telling myself "you don't have to do it all, Katie". And lastly, I ABSOLUTELY know the Mr. and I need to follow the Lord's lead rather than our own. We might 'think' we know what's best for us or when we need something but it is completely out of our hands. And I think this is an example of that.
We haven't had one ounce of rain the whole time we've been talking about building. Then, we close on everything and give our contractor the green light and it can't stop raining. Who would have thunk it!?!
Well, the Lord does know best so we'll see what His timing has in store for us.
Here is the progress thus far:
Culverts are in! Now we have a way to drive across the ditch.
Dirt work. This is the pad for our foundation. A big pile of mud right now! Doesn't look real high from this angle but it's a good 2-3 feet above ground level.
