Life Changes In A Flash

On Monday May 3rd I was having a wonderful afternoon. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, the lilacs in my garden smelled amazing and the smell traveled throughout the house. I was making a great dinner and waiting for my hubby to come home. 24hrs later was a much different story. We had storms earlier in the day, which caused a tree branch to fall on the power lines that run along our property line in front of the house. The line began to fall and cause huge explosions every ten to twenty seconds. It was absolutely terrifying!! I am so lucky that I was not hurt and that our house did not catch on fire. However, it was not spared completely. We have to have our 2oo year old house completely rewired. We also lost many electronics and appliances and will have to take down walls to fix the electrical.

So here we are in our house with partial amenities. Kinda like camping in our own house. We will be here for a week to 10 days and then we will have to leave for about 4 weeks while the work is being done. My husband says it is a blessing in disguise. I am waiting for the blessing to be revealed. He has such a positive outlook on life in general, but especially in this instance. Having something like this happen is especially hard when you are a stay at home wife. My little sanctuary has been wounded and disturbed. I am just thankful that God has given me such a happy little hubby to help carry me through this time.

So I am going to trust that God does indeed have a plan and a reason for why this has happened. I still love our little home, but I can't wait to have her back as my little sanctuary. :)


  1. Your blog is so cute, Susan! I will continue to pray for you throughout this week that God will calm your spirit and help you through this. Thankfully Dan is helping you and is positive throughout this. You are blessed. :)
