Today we drove an 1 hr and 15 minutes to Ethan's uncle's to pick up some things for our new pigs which will arrive soon. We loaded up a hog feeder, hog hut, and some panels, visited awhile, and then headed back home.
When we got home, we packed a farm lunch, loaded up the kids again (they are great travelers - most of the time!), and headed out to the farm to set up the hogs new home.
We were just getting going on the gravel, and I started to hear a strange sound. After we rolled down the windows we figured out that it was a tire rapidly loosing air.
Since we didn't have a spare (it either was stolen from under the truck or the wire broke and it fell off), we called around to some people from church to get a lift home. The mechanic from our church happened to be the one home. He not only gave us a lift, but took us to his shop to patch up our tire enough to get the truck and the trailer back home too.
When we got back to where the truck was, the rain that had been teasing us quit, and the sun came out. Right over the road where we parked the truck was the most vibrant, complete double rainbow that I have ever seen. The pictures don't do it justice - and I even missed the brightest part of it.
Just another reminder that not everything will always go perfectly, but God continues to be faithful through it all.
