With a bit warmer temps, I'm doing battle with batteries, chargers, charge controller and solar panels - that are not working!
will test one of the two batteries and my #tiny solar panel. I'm attaching
the clip ends to make it easier to switch from one (most likely dead)
battery to the other (probably dead) battery.
I killed them. First I let them run dry. I knew better. I just forgot to check. Then I put well water in, instead of distilled.
Expensive lesson. And a tangle of decisions to make. The batteries are
too heavy for me to lift. I need both in my truck, so they can be checked and enough money to buy a new
battery if they really are dead.
So at the moment - as I have no money for a new battery - one battery is connected to the inverter and eventually the charge controller. But, first I have to purchase new MC4 connectors for the 100 watt solar panel. I use the inverter and this battery to charge my phone and run my #tiny blender for coffee in the morni…
I want this story of Your great mercy and love for me to be known.
I want to bear the fruit of glorifying You in my life, please show me how! How do I tell of the battles and challenges of day to day living? How I ended up here. Without sounding like I'm whining and/or complaining? How do I also share Your great goodness and mercy to me? I need to tell of - - The storm and the Anchor that holds me. - The battle and the King that leads me. - The Desert, and the Water that restores me and gives me life! I need them to know I have been alone in the wilderness, and of the Gentle Shepherd who rescued me and brought me back to green pastures! You alone deserve the honor, O God in Heaven. I must glorify the Name of Jesus my Redeemer. He has redeemed my life and I have hope; hope that He will redeem the lost time, the lonely-grieving-broken-in-a-million-pieces time!
- Suckers never produce ... anything.
- Suckers, "suck" the life from the branches that DO produce and
weaken whatever fruit is produced.
- Sometimes when you're deleting suckers ...
especially with a saw? You get dust in your eyes.
- New suckers will grow out of suckers you have cut before.
- There is season for everything.
There's a season to remove the dead stuff.
A season to prune.
And there's a season to cut out the suckers.
Now I can see.
- Suckers block your view.
That's all for today's outdoor work. See the droplets on my window?
Cold. And rain. And wind.
Time to hunker down. Put on an extra pair of leggings.
Find your wool socks and put on a hat!
Eat dinner in front of the fireplace and watch a Netflix movie.
