Nessy's First Entry
It's finally Nessy's turn to write. I want to tell you that I love
because every 2 or 3 days a tree ripe fresh mango drops off the neighbors tree that's over our house. It sounds like a bomb when it crashes on the roof, you know the kind of roof that looks like a wavy ruffle chip, and lands in our little patio right outside our back door. The mangoes are small, sweet and perfect.
I also wanted to tell you about a Return Visit that I have and what happened to his family. A few years ago they moved to
and found a house they wanted to buy that the owners were in a hurry to sell. Which I say house but it's more like an outbuilding that you would see in Buckingham with a dirt floor.
The owners quickly did the paperwork and the family moved in. What they didn't know about the house was that there was a concrete hatch in the floor. The hatch was poorly sealed and what it covered was an old septic tank. The uncle, who was a large man, unknowingly stood on the concrete lid and it collapsed under him. The fumes were so overpowering that before the firefighters could get him out he died. Three of the firefighters that were exposed to the fumes died as well. The
man telling us the story about his uncle was about 25 years old and after telling us this story he used a local expression that went something like, “what can you do if it's God's will?” Jenny Bloxsom asked if he felt that it was something that God would want. He thought about it and drew the correct conclusion. We showed him James 1:13, 14 and reasoned that it is highly unlikely that God would drown a man in a septic tank to accomplish his will. He did appreciate the thought and is interested in knowing what is God's purpose for the
but I'll have to admit that's the first time I've had to reason on something like that!
