Can you imagine living with no electricity. Here in New England, many of us are living without electricity, water, lights, toilets:)
I think people are doing quite well overall; many going to hotels, many staying with relatives, others staying home in the cold and visiting those that have the essentials.
We went without for one day. So blessed was I, that the Lord took care of my dilemna. I was having my first women's tea party from my church (my husband is the pastor) and my thirteen year old daughter and I were decorating for two weeks before and baking away. But you know, those last minute baking items, vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom, setting the tables, and now what? No electricity and it was a bit chilly. We went to our favorite bookstore and read and then had boiled hot dogs at a friends house because they at least had a gas stove. It was fun. We went home to find the electricity on. I baked till 1:30 am and then got up in the morn to finish. All the ladies came and brought their curling irons and blow dryers to finish up because they also did not have electricity. No one wanted to leave because of the warmth. The ending of my story-God was so faithful to me personally after all the work and money we spent, that he allowed us to minister to the ladies.
In all that said-trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge HIM and HE shall direct your paths.
