Unexpected blessings

This is my first time blogging from my phone...hope you can read it! I'm still getting used to typing on the touchscreen, my old phone had a keypad too. But this phone has this weirdly cool function where you slide you finger across the letters, tracing your word and it picks  it up. Kinda like t9 meets the twenty tens.

I digress.

Anyway, my power is out, as it is for 2500 ppl. No storm, just out. At first I was really annoyed. I mean this is finals wk and darkness, low computer battery, and no internet is a prob. But, I think of most of the world who experiences this or much less every night. And I think maybe God has a blessing for me in this. I can set aside my mountain of stuff, crawl into bed with a book, journal and flashlight, (a la childhood) and just rest.

The work will still be there, but I will come back to it a little bit different. More rested, more peaceful, more thankful for the hidden blessings that pepper our lives.

Maybe power outages aren't such a bad thing afterall...
