My wife and I went appliance hunting and found (on clearance) a dishwasher that exceeded our expectations. Slowly, we began the process of installation that included removing the old one. We found extensive water damage, and ants. We had to take our time, dry out the floor, demolish the old tile, fog the ants, sand the floor, and recoat with a water proof varnish. It took us all week, as one project would have to be done, and we would have to wait for either the floor to dray, the varnish to dry, or to consult the installation manual. It was nice to wake up to a counter free of ants, and a dishwasher full of clean dishes, and no water on the floor.

Proverbs 19:2 "… to be overhasty is to sin and miss the mark".

Taking our time to repair the old, and install the new, is a blessing. This morning, we are about to go enjoy the outdoors where we will share the fine art of hanging tree stands, riding ATV's, picnicking, viewing wildlife, etc. In a music context, there is no music in the rest, but the making of it. Floors dry if given a rest, damage is repaired if time is taken, and advance preparation in hunting should improve the success ratio.

Lord, help us enjoy the time it takes to wait while repairs are done, and preventative and proactive measures are taken. Forgive us for being overhasty.
