As the ice coated the trees they would snap and break. Sounded like shot guns going off at night.
So we did lose one tree in the picnic area. The birds were fed every day.
When the sun came out it was amazing. Like crystal everywhere. Just beautiful.
We were without power for 6 days. We did have propane heat. The cabins filled up. The guests were wonderful and everyone helped each other out. My freezer had defrosted so we had all the grills fired up and had a steak dinner for everyone. Even during a disaster people find reasons to laugh and care for their neighbors.
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.
Have you used one to say ‘thank you’?When you sit down to a meal, do you take a moment to appreciate it? Or is it something that is taken for granted? There are many in the world that will not have a meal tonight, or the next night, or the night after that. Appreciate your meal.
Appreciate the life that was given by the plants and the animals so that you could have that meal. Appreciate the work that was done by the growers, the pickers, the truckers, the stores, and those who prepare your food so that you could have that meal.
During the ice storm, did you look in awe at the beauty of the ice in the trees? How everything looked crystal and bright?
When the power was off, did a deck of cards come out and the family play cards together?
Did you talk to each other by candlelight or flashlights?
After the ice storm and the loss of power have you waved and said thanks to the power workers.
There is no movement made, no breath drawn, anywhere in the world that does not affect every other part in the world, whether you are aware of it or not.
God works in mysterious ways indeed!!!!
Don’t think about it so much. Feel it.
Feel how you are part of the intricate web of life, of the flow of life and even of death.
I wonder if you have any concept of just how much you give to this world. I can’t stress enough how very important YOU are to me and everybody that you touch.
So, please take the time to take care of a friend that is so important to so many lives,,,, YOU!!!!!!
Appreciate these days and appreciate all that you are in these days, for you are changing, too… Be in an “attitude of gratitude” and you will feel yourself blessed beyond counting.
The average person living to age 70 has 613, 000 hours of life.
This is too long a period not to have fun and give Thanks.
