Without Power

I've been without power since Saturday. Literally and figuratively. Just feeling tired and middle aged. Not that it does any good to complain about age... I wish I could say "that's when I realized that I needed to get back in 'The Word'." Did I get my Bible out and receive fresh nourishment from God himself? No. When I'm discouraged I run helter skelter searching for comfort and escape. I crocheted two scarves and I haven't picked up a crochet hook since junior high. I even read my daughter's copy of In Touch magazine to see what the celebrities were wearing! I didn't see any crocheted scarves... They need Jesus, but so do I. So do I.

Hey girl! Hope you are back to power, both literally and figuratively. Glad you are getting creative in the dark! It's amazing how oblivious one can be to bad weather elsewhere when things are warm here in the south (well, that will all change tomorrow.) Snuggle up to the Lord. He is good!

You made me laugh, as they write, LOL. Even my husband LOL..ed. You still have a sense of humor. Amazing! Loved your post on my blog about the kicker. Love you!

Okay, you might be old, but clearly I'm much older and out of touch. When you mentioned reading "In Touch" magazine, I assumed that was the companion to the religious radio broadcast. I'd never heard of a celebrity mag by that name. LOL!

I think crocheting scarves seems like a wonderful way to deal with your power outtage (literal and metaphoric).
