As luck would have it… I texted Anne yesterday and asked what she thought happened with the weather prediction of a 70% chance of thunderstorm and pouring rain. She responded: ” ” By guess and by golly” I reckon.
I started laughing-had never heard that expression -told her it must be a ” Yankee” expression! It means… relying on guesswork and luck… like weather forecasters! 🤣
But finally around 5:30 yesterday afternoon the 70 % hit all at once as you can see from the title picture! Then it turned into 100%!
Actually I was glad it held off since this was moving in day for Camp Christopher at Seabrook. I could hardly wait for Mandy to get home and tell me all about it. It took awhile to get everyone settled in and to Eva Cate’s great relief one of her friends was in her cabin… slowly the hopeful smile appeared!
Sadly my day turned into guesswork too wondering what was going on with my brother. He had a dizzy spell yesterday and ended up in the ER unit at Conway Medical running through a battery of tests.
As I type this Ben is being kept for overnight observation and checks on his oxygen levels. He talked with me and sounded fine… but I am anxiously awaiting the doctor’s assessment today. Please keep him in your prayers!
I hope the magic of Anne’s first moonflower is a good sign that God is watching over first year campers and big brothers.
So until tomorrow ” by guess and by golly ” don’t we all rely on God’s steadfast vigilance over each of us? The only guesswork is on our end most times but never God’s…
