When Home Feels like a Fixer-Upper

My husband and I stood and stared at the scalding hot water pouring onto the bare plywood floor of the bathroom we are remodeling. Neither of us knew how exactly to go about plugging a hole in a water main. Finally, the shock wore off. I grabbed nearby towels and stuffed them around the split copper pipe, and my husband ran to the basement to shut off the water. Thankfully, the plumber was scheduled to come the next day, and the neighborhood pool made a great stand-in for showers that evening.
Do-it-yourself projects look really easy, all smiles and shiplap, until something like this happens.

  1. Thank you Amy. My wife and I are also raising three sons. One is 21 and in college, one is 18 and about to begin and one is 17 (going on 35) and will be leaving soon as well.

    “Pressing on” struck the deepest chord in my heart. It is also my theme for this weekend’s worship. Would you mind if I used some of your post for my message?

    Blessings to you and your family!
