Let There Be Light

Cynda called last night and told us that the lights were back on at their house. What a blessing electricity is. We don't think much about all of the blessings that we have until they are taken away from us. 40% of Baton Rouge is still without power, and the estimated date for full restoration of power to all of Baton Rouge is Sept 24. Some outlying areas may take as long a 2 more weeks to restore.
I am making a special effort in my life to look for the blessings. I spend too much time on the negative. While I'm thinking about the negative, the blessings that are everywhere in my life don't seem noticeable.
Let there be light, and let it illuminate all the blessings that God showers me with.
