Just a small rip. He doesn’t know how it happened, but he obviously caught it on something. It’s light stuff and would be easy to tear. It was definitely not any failure of the jacket quality.
He’d had it about a year and loved it. Too bad.
REI replaced it. For free. Even after a year.
But it was his fault!
Doesn’t matter. “Go on back there and pick out another one,” they said.
Do you find it hard to ask for God’s help when the mess you’re in is all your fault?
Of course you go to God when you’re scared or a victim. But if your trouble is your own doing are you on your own?
