Let there be Light!

After four days without power, today, I finally have some heat, lights, and television! I am glad I did not live in the 1800's. This was a hard few days as I consider myself pretty independent and it was hard to not "make it" on my own.

I am so grateful to Mark, Christa, Will, Lora & Zoe for putting up with me the last three nights and four days. It is such a relief to know I can go there and not worry about feeling bad or imposing. It can be hard to live in community but not when you have such a great community to live in. I am SO thankful and am reminded daily that God does answer prayers when he sent you back into my life! I love you all so much and Santa will be good to you this year, I promise!

As corny as this analogy may sound, when I turned my lights on to see if they really did work and the darkness suddenly lit up, I was reminded of how the "light" of our world came to brighten our darkness. Jesus brings light to the darkness of any situation, any life choices, any marriage, friendship, relationship, work situation and any hopeless place we may find ourselves. He is light.

In small ways, I was reminded of that over this past four days and am grateful to the Everlasting Father for sending his Son.

4 days without power? That's impressive I'm glad you learned something from the experience

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.

Twitter...see what I'm doing!
