A Wake-Up Call

We take so much for granted in this country—electricity, heat, water, food and shelter. This Texas Arctic blast has been a good reminder to appreciate what we have. It was minus 3 degrees here one morning. Our Texas houses weren’t built for this kind of cold! With my electrical power going off and on and several days with no water, reality strikes. We Texans are scurrying around every time our power comes on to shower (if we have water), to heat up something and to charge our phones and laptops. Whatever we can get done in a short amount of time. I’m thankful to have a wood-burning fireplace with plenty of wood. I’m not complaining. Some people have had no power for days, so I feel blessed. Now we wait for the thaw to see what damage has been done to our water lines. Pray for us!

  1. Praying! Yes in all our trials we learn what blessings we have and what’s really important.
