We had a few repairs to make and as the case turns out to be; those always seem to come all at once. The inner-works of the water reservoir of the commode in the front bathroom had to be replaced, because it all of a sudden decided to keep running.
That meant we had to take out the cabinet which sits over it in order to get to it and that was not an easy task. We had to reach down far to take it apart, stretch, bend and carry and all that put a lot of strain on the joints.
To keep the dog in the fence, some more stakes and another drop rod for the gate were in order and that meant a lot of hammering and some digging. We are not done yet with all that, because the rain threw a wrench in the works, but what was done had stressed my shoulders even more.
A few days of rest ought to cure it though and God allowed and provided for that as well, since the grandchildren are staying with their other grandparent for several days.
All those things had to be done sometime anyway and I am fully aware that I am the one who put and brought those daily burdens, and the hurt that resulted from it, upon me. That is usually the case with everything, because the things God puts on us are a help and not a hurt!
1 John 5:3
For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
