Home heating oil should have been delivered on Saturday .... between 7.00 am and 6.00 pm ... or that's what the e-mail said!
A couple of times I checked the level through the murky gauge ... but couldn't see anything so assumed that the tank was full and I'm not tall enough to look at the very top (and too lazy to get the steps out for a proper check).
However, a chilling of the house this evening made me realize that no delivery had been made ... and we're out of oil!
Ah well ... could be much worse ... just ask my niece!
I have warm clothes, a winter weight duvet and a centrally heated dog. Comfort food for supper helps too.
And now there's the added pleasure of an early night with the Kindle! No doubt it will mean an early morning with the dog ... but that's okay too.
Lord Jesus Christ,
Son of the living God,
teach us to walk in your way more trustfully,
to accept your truth more faithfully,
to share your life more lovingly;
so that we may come
by the power of the Holy Spirit
as one family to the kingdom of the Father,
where you live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.
The Promise of his Glory
