Once upon a time, the lone toilet in a damsel’s castle cracked. It was just a sliver of a crack, but nevertheless. . .
No problem, thought the damsel, I’ll put this cup here to catch the drips until it can be fixed. Unfortunately, the cup runneth over sooner than the damsel expected. The damsel pondered the problem.
Drip. . . . . . . . .
Drip. . . . . . . Drip
Drip. . Drip. . Drip
Drip, drip, drip,drip.
“Help!” called the damsel in distress.
Unfortunately, it was a holiday, the 4th of July, and the plumbers of the kingdom were busy.
“I can be there when the fireworks are over,” they said.
That will never work, thought the damsel. I have a newly potty-trained prince returning to the castle at dusk. He does not yet understand the meaning of ‘hold it’.
She thought about her options.
Then it dawned on her. Directions! The damsel was good at directions. She would install it herself.
“Can I help you? asked the Menard’s attendant.
“I need a toilet for my castle,” replied the damsel looking him straight in the eye, “and it has to have directions.”
Up went the attendant’s eyebrows; the damsel just smiled.
As the damsel lugged the toilet from her chariot into her castle, she heard fireworks in the distance celebrating independence day.
Well, that’s appropriate, she thought, installation of toilets is certainly not for the dependent damsel.
The booklet of directions was thick. Thicker than the damsel expected.
One step at a time, she thought. Step 1 is easy: Remove old toilet.
Two hours later that was done.
It was then she did a very wise thing. She put down the packet of directions, sat in her toiletless castle, and prayed for a miracle.
It worked! Forty-five minutes later, with a perfect 60 second flush, the damsel celebrated her greatest accomplishment.
Never doubt the power of prayer.
You and prayer
Do not doubt.
It is possible.
