Miracles do happen!!

The last several days have been cool, rainy,dreary and just kinda miserable up here in the Black Hills. That is up until yesterday. When I got up at 4am yesterday we were socked in...I mean heavy fog everywhere. I couldn't see the end of our driveway.  Uh Oh, I thought another gloomy day.  Suddenly the fog burned off and I could see that the sky was CLEAR. In a short time, it was a beautiful day.

Monday the "Well" guys didn't show up, as I expected.  However, it was raining hard most of the time and we couldn't have done much anyhow. Yesterday (Tuesday) it was a beautiful sunny day and they were here bright and early.

I do believe in Miracles and I do believe I experienced one this weekend.  Sunday before I left for Church at 8:30am, I did a test on the "Well" because I thought I had noticed something that I wanted to confirm. I turned the Pump on and let it build up to pressure. I put my pressure gauge on and it built up to 59 lbs and shut off. I then turned off the power to the pump. It seemed to be holding.  Praise the Lord! Is this for real, or am I just imagining things? I took a close reading of the pressure and let it set for for a couple hours. When we got home shortly after 10:00 am, the pressure was still 59.  Hallelujah !!!!!   I still didn't believe my eyes.  I watched it for a couple more hours. Sure enough it was holding.  Hmmm, what happened? I watched it Monday in the rain off and on and amazingly it was holding. Tuesday I knew the "Well" guys would probably show up and that was fine.  I wanted them to check this out and see if I was right.

The first "Well" guy showed up and I explained to him what I had discovered. He was amazed and wanted to wait for the head guy to get here and check it out.  When he arrived and ran several tests, it was discovered that sure enough, a MIRACLE had happened and it was working perfectly..  In disbelief they packed up and went on to another job, telling me to watch it and let them know if we needed them.  Keep your fingers crossed, I have been dissapointed before but so far so good.  So, do I believe in Miracles? Yes I sure do and I thank God everyday for these kind of fine things that happen. We have WATER!!!


Our good friends and Motorcycle riding buddies, Gregg and Bonnie Gheyssens, are reporting in to us on their way to Alsaka.  Last week they had arrived at Dawson Creek,BC and entered the Alaskan Highway. They are both on their Bikes and Gregg is pulling their Camper. They camped at Mile Marker "0" Campground. They have a neat setup. What an EXPERIENCE!!! 


The weather has been slowing them down a little, but they are enjoying the sights so far.  I have been tracking their progress on the map. They are heading on to Whitehorse, in the Yukon. Maybe they are getting close. WOW, what a trip!!! All I can say Gregg and Bonnie is, I wish we were with you.  Please be careful and ENJOY!!! We're thinking of you...

Interesting stuff with your "Well", glad it's working again and I sure hope it holds. Now that you're on a roll, maybe you should head on down to the Gulf and perform another miracle by getting that well to 'stop' pumping!!

Rick has a point, but I think it'll take more than just your personal influence to stop that oil. Maybe if we all prayed? Yes, we certainly do believe in miracles, and we like to proclaim that there are no true coincidences, but then we also hold that not everything that happens for the good is a miracle. There's a slew of different things happening for sure, and I'll accept a miracle now and again. We also believe in guardian angels, as we have often been protected and guided to good results. Praise God for all His wonders!

I love following folks on travels to Alaska. I did that a couple of years ago and it really whet my appetite for the RV lifestyle and Alaska.

Glad the water pressure is working again! That will make things better for you guys.

Now if that rig, RV and property would sell for full price..

Glad to hear this has a happy ending!! It's too hot out there not to have water. I think you got a miracle too :)

I know you're glad to have water again. It's funny how much you appreciate running water when you don't have it!

Glad to get caught up with you guys. Our time in Portland had us working long hours with short nights of rest. We are now in Marysville for the Strawberry Festival and back to better hours.

Show hubby your rig and trailer. He said if we had the money we would hop on that. But alas that is out of our price range. Will pray along with you that the right buyers come along and quickly.

Glad the well is working again.
