Back to work emergency on call this week 🙂
Water Tower on 2nd floor make up water valve blowing water by 🤭
Grocery Freezer on 1st floor flooded about 2 inches water with warehouse over flow.
Plumbing Contractor onsite found store main water pressure regulator failed and store water was blowing 130+ psi through store water lines.
Hence the water tower make up water valve blowing by, over flowing the warehouse.
So with all the interrelated facets of that service call…
I could not help but think of all the parts of community, society, that rely on each other for normal operation, without failure.
And yesterday being the sabbath day, despite me having to work, I could not help but remember the beauty in the diversity of the saints. The necessity of the diversity, like in the human body… We cannot all be a foot, or an eye, or an ear, otherwise how could one stand, see, or hear.
I couldn’t help but remember a kids song growing up with words like the leg bone connected to the knee bone, &tc
So searching online for the song, I found a 1947ish version of it, an adult version and apparently the song was inspired by Ezekiel chapter 37.
So hear is a 2 minute vignette of that service call with parts of Dem Dry Bones performed by Delta Rhythm Boys and Ezekiel 37:1-14, Enjoy!
“The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live?
And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.
Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.”
Ezekiel 37:1-14 KJV
