Icy Day

Well, today the ice is heavy and there are many in my city without power. Please pray that we don't have more power outages. We are supposed to get 1-3 inches of snow on top of the ice later and that in and of itself could cause more outages.

The ice on the trees is beautiful, as if they are made of glass. A simple thing like ice can make these large creations fragile in just a matter of hours. There are trees down everywhere across Hopkinsville and my son said upon return from his Dad's in the country that you could stand outside and just hear all the trees in the woods popping as limbs succumbed to ice.

Sometimes our lives are like that. . . we are rock solid, feel like we are an example of what life should be. Then a storm comes and sticks to us so fast and so hard that we begin to break into pieces and start falling apart. We had no idea that even those who are strong are sometimes no match for a storm.

At times like this, we need to put God first, and let him help us pick up the pieces that are broken. Give it all to Him and He can fix what the storm has broken. We will be more beautiful in His eyes because sometimes the storm prunes things away that didn't need to be there in the first place, we just thought that they were intregal to our lives, but God knows best.
