Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
I can’t remember if what I am about to write happened just before, or just after, the loose wheel incident, but it was about the same time. What God was teaching me by what happened below, was not very clear then, but as time continued it became more and more clear.
