plumbing issues

Well, we found out we have a hot water leak in the slab of our house.... I am new at this, but apparently, this is not a good thing!

We had a plumber come and look into it. They were very nice and upfront about what they would have to do and approximate cost. The warranty and home owners' insurance is not that great, only giving us $500 from the warranty towards repairs. And we have a $1000 deductible on the insurance.

Needless to say, this is a stressful thing for my husband. Satan knows finance worries is Fred's button to push.

Well, we've been praying for God to give us wisdom on how to tackle this problem. I happened to post something about it on Facebook the other day. A guy from our church, who happened to be the inspector to our house before moving, saw the post. He approached Fred Tuesday night at his men's Bible study group and asked him about it. The guy sitting next to Fred is a 'semi' retired plumber who has a lot of experience with slab leaks. Coincidence??  I think not!
He came over today. He has actually done work in this house a few years back. He thinks it can be done around $1000. He'll be coming back next week to start on it.

Now, we are still praying for this process. That they will find the leak without too much tearing of the house, and the cost will be manageable.

But again, we see how God is ahead of us making a way to fix our problems. More and more, we are seeing this happen in our lives. Now, the question is, why?  Is it because we are getting older and appreciate it more? Is it that we have become more sensitive to His leading that we can see the miracles easier? 

I don't know.
