Writer's Block: DIY

DIY
MacGyver, hero of the tv show with the same name, is known for his resourceful use of ordinary household items to get out of an emergency situation. What's the most ingenious solution you've ever come up with in a pinch?

This is a follow up to the last post on my ingenious MacGyver solution (read last post so you'll know what I'm talking about).

OK, I'm back from Home Depot. I walked up and down, and up and down, and up and down the aisle trying to come up with an ingenious fix to my shredded duct problem.

One of the workers must have seen my pacing and asked if I needed help.

I explained the situation and laid out the MacGyver plan I was devising. Then I asked, "Will that work?"

He very carefully (and graciously) said, "Yes...(long pause) probably... but it won't pass code. I tell you what. Let me give you the name of my friend who does this kind of work. I guarantee you - you won't find a more fair and honest worker ANYWHERE. And he'll charge you half of what the others charge."

Hmmm...hire a fair, honest worker who knows what they're doing. That is even more ingenius than my ingenious MacGyver plan.

<3 God sees our needs and provides. I love the worker's response to you, and also how much determination you have to get things accomplished!

You are so right about God's provision. We face so many struggles in our daily lives and He walks us through each one.

As far as the determination...that's only by the grace of God. I daily have to tell myself - keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep going.

HaH! I probably would have created some sort of fire hazard under there!
