He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

So Here's What We've Been Up To...

It snowed in October this year.
It snowed a lot.
We lost power last Saturday, a week ago.
We got it back about 5 minutes ago.
We've been blessed with a generator that has been hooked up to the house so we have had heat and hot water.
I haven't been able to use the dryer.
{Our dining room has been one giant drying rack.}
I haven't been able to use the hair dryer.
{Gotta love headbands!}
I haven't been able to use the stove.
(A griddle has been awfully handy but I've had to use it sparingly.}
The grocery stores have been hit or miss.
Some places have had no meat or anything refrigerated.
Some places have only had power on their cash registers and we've had to walk through dark aisles to find what we need.
We've eaten out more than we like as places start to get their power back.
No one has been untouched by this.

It hasn't been all that bad for us.
The morning after the snowfall was amazingly beautiful.

Sometimes there is beauty in the difficulty.
We've also had a chance to have friends over whom we love dearly.
We've had a warm place to be and friends and family have joined us here.
We've hung out as a family of five too.
"Hello, family bed!"

And though the damage all around us is vast and varied, the greenhouse suffered only minimal damage.

See. it's not so bad.

PRAISE THE LORD for electricity!!
