An Angel named Juancho

This morning Jorge started the overwhelming task of trimming trees, raking leaves and cleaning up the back yard.  It is way too much for one person to try to do...exhausting work.  We have lots of trees and lots of leaves! 

Our neighbors have a family member named Juancho who lives with them.  Juancho takes care of all the yard work and maintenance on their house.  What a blessing, huh?!

This morning Jorge and I were talking about the overwhelming task at hand and we mentioned a few names of young guys we sometimes call for help with the yard.  For one reason or another none were available.  I said to Jorge,  "We need a Juancho, don't we?!"  He raised his eyebrows and looked at me as if to say, "I wish!!"

So, I went my way to the office and he went his way to the back yard, each one about his business.  Less than 30 minutes later I hear Jorge talking with someone and go out to check.  Juancho!  A Godsend!  Jorge's angel for the day!  God sent us a "Juancho" for the day...just when we most needed it and least expected it!

Juancho was on his side of the fence, heard Jorge working and peeked over.  Jorge mentions his task and Juancho offers to help.  God heard our "prayer"...our cry...our plea.  God sent an angel to help Jorge angel named Juancho!
