This week I made a cooking pit out of bricks and a grill cover and heated our dish and laundry water over an open fire. I felt like a pioneer woman and it was fun! Call me Fire Queen.
Our nights were candlelit, nursing sessions included. Jon read the Chronicles of Narnia aloud while I knit or sewed by hand. I actually felt like Marty from the Love Comes Softly series.
You could hear crickets outside our house. The street was dark and quiet. Until 3 neighbors started up generators.
But now the storm has been over for 5 days, and we finally have our power back! Let me say, people – I am SO THANKFUL for power!
Of course I have to say that I’m thankful for God’s power to meet these circumstances and for His strength and protection. Especially since 3 of the four of us were sick in the middle of it. I never get sick like this, but had a fever, chills, and aches. Yuck.
It’s all over and we’re out the other side. And we didn’t get slammed like folks down South. Please pray for those who are still out of power (most of my family included) and for those who got hit with storm when it was much worse.
Hope you’re doing well, hope you have power, and hope it’s both kinds. 🙂
