Electricity is a Wonderful Thing

Even though we have a generator, it’s so nice when the power is restored.  We lost power Wednesday for about 3 hours.  The outage was timed just right for me to be able to prepare lunch and dinner.  Then about 10:30pm the power went off again and didn’t come back on until about 11:30pm last night.

Thank you all for praying for us here in Louisiana.  We’re fine.  We have lots of pine needles and branches in the yard but no major damage.  Don’s little boat he uses to putter around in the pond sunk except for the motor end.  He’ll pump the water out and be ready just like new.  Vanessa sent me a text saying she needed to use his yellow boat so I sent her one back saying “ok” and included this picture.

She changed her mind.

This broken branch is about the worst tree damage I have found so far on our place.  There are lots of trees down in other places and water across roads still in our parish.

Please continue to keep the people of our state and others affected by this storm in your prayers and close to your hearts.  Especially say prayers for the community of Braithwaite, LA where the whole town is flooded to the rooftops and at least 2 people have lost their lives.
