5 Minutes of Wind and 100 Hours without Power

Every hour counts indeed, when life is not as convenient as it used to be.

However, we are greatly thankful for the Lord’s wonderful kindness and mercy, and His protection over us again and again. There are 20+ trees down on our property because of the storm that happened on last Saturday, and yet, none of them hit anyone or any structure except some pasture fences and a small mobile chicken coop. Nine trees fell down at a gate where two of my children and some animals just passed through a few seconds before.

Through all these, we are reminded of the almighty power of our God and the vulnerability of our own.

“They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end. Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven. Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.” Psalms 107:23-32

This is where two of our children passed through a few seconds before the trees fell down

I witnessed the fall of this tree (60 ft)
