Big ice storm in this area today. it is both beautiful and terrifying at the same time. The trees are gorgeous encapsulated in ice especially when the light hits the branches at the right angle. but the destructiveness of the ice can't be overlooked. As i sit here, i can here branches cracking and falling off of near by trees. We have been without power for almost 18 hours and it doesn't look like it is coming on again soon.
Makes me think. i am so blessed to have a home even if it is dark and a little chilly right now. I pray for the homeless that are having to endure this bitter cold tonight. i am blessed to have a full wood rack in the back yard so i can have a blazing fire.
The short term inconvenience of a power outage can't negate the blessings of God. I think God can use these temporary intrusions into our day to day niceties to help us refocus on him.
