On Tuesday night a strong storm came through the Chicago area with 80mph winds. It was quick and fierce, knocking down trees and power lines. We lost power immediately and it stayed off for 48 hours. Traffic lights were out throughout our town and surrounding towns making travel difficult and we lost many branches from our trees. We had to throw away 4 large black garbage bags of food from our fully stocked refrigerator and freezers, but I can't complain knowing what other communities have been going through.
Thank goodness for battery powered Ott lights so I could keep on creating :) and battery powered booklights and radios came in handy too. And I found another reason to really like those battery operated timer candles :)
This weekend was perfect ~ sunny skies, nice warm temps and a steady breeze!
Life is wonderful!
"Shine, Jesus shine
Fill this land with the Father's glory
Blaze, Spirit blaze,
Set our hearts on fire
Flow, river flow
Flood the nations with grace and mercy
Send forth Your word
Lord and let there be light."
Wishing you a week that shines!
