Problems and solutions…
I got up early to work on my Christmas sewing projects when lo and behold my 62 year old sewing machine which had started sounding a little funny began to smell really bad. Yes, I quit sewing and started to work on the little bit of handwork I could do, but I also started to think of possible solutions.
Buying a machine and getting it shipped would take too long and I truly hope my trusty old Elna is reparable. Borrowing from someone is probably not a viable option as people are a little particular about loaning equipment.
Finally I thought about the school home ec teacher. That was a good choice. I emailed her about speaking to her and when I went to her room she not only was willing to let me use the machine, but said I could take it to my room. Now I think I will be able to finish my projects in a timely fashion.
I am so thankful for those who are willing to help me and for possible solutions when I have problems. Now I just have to plan my time well and work efficiently to finish on time.
Father, thank you for the help you provide when problems occur. I feel confident I can finish my projects without a new problem arising and even if it does, I know you will guide me to a quick solution. You are the great and mighty God who loves his children. Amen.
