I live alone with my preschooler in an off-grid cabin on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia.

The fridge - part 1
Propane fridges are truly wonderful because they are silent but they are also expensive to purchase. An electric fridge isn't an option because they use too much electricity- which is something I have very little of. On Jan 21 my old and used propane fridge quit working. I cleaned the chimney out but that made no difference so I put all the remaining food outside on the deck in totes. The weather is close to the same temperature as a fridge and that is a blessing. Another blessing is that this happened shortly before a planned town trip and no food was wasted and I thank God for that. However, I postponed a town trip so we could eat all the remaining food up. Both gas servicemen are on holidays so there is little to do except pray, wait and trust God. Whichever way this goes I have complete confidence in God to provide because that has been His track record. For anyone who is facing uncertainty I find Philippians 4:6,7 to be a gem. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." I am living in that peace and it could only be given by a God who loves and cares.
