The last week on our home front has been interesting to say the least. Five days without electricity made me very thankful that we have electricity! I couldn't help but think of the great power that my God has. He sure displayed that power last Friday.

Scott and I were on the way to my parent's house to celebrate my dad's birthday. Scary! I will be ok to never drive in a storm like that again. I could not help but think of the great power of my great God.

Psalm 136:4
"To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever."

There were several things that I had taken for granted, that I learned to be thankful for. Things that we would say are essential. I would have to say that I survived without them, but man, how much easier do they make life!
  • Being able to flush the toilet without dumping water in the bowl. Yes, we learned that you do not dump the water in the tank, but in the bowl! Umm...good thing to know!
  • Flipping a switch and having light. I am thankful for all the flashlights that my husband has. I also, flipped many switches wiht nothing happening!
  • Having a fridge to keep food cold. How did people do it before they had fridges? I would have a hard time surviving.
  • Air conditioning. It was a scorching week not to have it!
  • Running water to brush your teeth, wash your hands, take a shower, and do laundry.
I was very thankful for our families that let us take showers at their house and to enjoy their air conditioning.

There was this calmness in our village as the only thing that was heard was generators. The moon provided the light for the city. It was serene.

It was also very nice to take a little break and enjoy just spending time with others. Electricity provides a lot of benefits for us, but it also makes our lives a little more busy. The trade offs in life!

What part of having electricity are you thankful for?
