As commented on previous via Twitter, our A/C started to not work last Friday. Here is a recap of the adventure!
– Last Friday at about 8 pm in the evening, our A/C began to not work correctly (the thermostat read 85)
– Because we have a new baby in the house, it dangerous to have a baby sleep in a hot house, I started calling every A/C place in the phone book to come out. Because it was Friday night at 8pm nobody was available.
– Me and the rest of the family (including the dog) piled into the car and we checked ourselves into a hotel for the night.
– I was hoping the a good night’s sleep in a air conditioned room but between the baby crying and the dog barking at every noise, I got maybe three hours of sleep.
– On Saturday morning I was able to reach a friend of my neighbor to meet me at the house and look at the A/C unit to determine what was wrong. We met up and he told me that he would be back later in the day to fix the problem.
– I returned to the hotel to pick up the family and get us settled back into the warm house for the day. With fan running on high, we proceeded to wait out the day until our new repairman could return
– At around 8pm on Saturday night, our A/C was fixed! We were able to sleep in cool comfort!
I am very thankful for my neighbor Erica and her referral of our new repair guy Keri! By calling him instead of an A/C company I saved myself quite a bit of money. I also have been reading the stories of friends and family who had their A/C go out in the last few days. It is funny how much a rather non important thing like A/C becomes so important to us? What if we liked in a third-world country and did not have A/C? It is easy to take our modern comforts for granted isn’t it?
This past Sunday, James at Westridge Church Chspoke about not worrying and I would like to say that I was not worried about getting the A/C fixed but I was. Jesus taught me though this experience that he knows my needs and will meet them if I focus my attention upon him and not my comfort. Thank you Jesus for the vivid reminder of kingdom perspective!
