I’ve mentioned requesting help from the city through their county resources department, to which there was no help the could offer me. They apologized, like so many, and I sighed. They did call me back, however, saying they may be able to replace the roof. He said all those taxes I’ve been paying for years is what goes into that fund, if a roofing quote could meet their budgetary guidelines a new roof would be installed. With that, I let it go, knowing I’ve been down this road before, getting my hopes up.
Well, the gal from the roofing company called to schedule work to start tomorrow! There is a break in the weather we need to take advantage of. I was granted a choice of colors, I chose black to match the detached shed out front.
So I rest in the knowledge of a blessing is on its way tomorrow. If I get to stay here, I’ll have the benefit of a new roof, if not, the new owners will.
At any rate, I am deeply grateful knowing I couldn’t afford anything like this now that my resources are earmarked for survival through the winter. This is a relief, one of the things I wrestled with having a home was some of the “deferred maintenance” as it’s called in our industry. I want to take care of this home as God would have, and I am so relieved!
I haven’t cashed the check for utilities yet, I sent the thank you letter last week and wanted to give it time to get there and passed around to the organization before cashing it. I wanted to make sure they knew I was grateful, not greedy.
Thanks dear friends, for being here, and for your continued support and prayers.
