Back to normal (sort of)

The wonderful power was back on Sunday evening, and my phone was back to life Monday evening.

Being without, of course, made me appreciate things like cool air, hot showers, TV, radio and lamps.

Being without these things also made me appreciate some Bible verses. After spending a few evenings with hurricane lamps as my light source, I now have a more vivid image in my head of what it means to have a lamp light my way. When deep darkness surrounds me, I must move very carefully. The dependability of the light from a lamp held in front of me is the only way I can navigate around obstacles and past pitfalls.

This is what it means to depend on Christ to lead me through this dark world.
