It's a God Thing

     This is my new Wednesday weekly segment for 2013.  God is definitely involved in our lives all the time but there are certain special moments that we can clearly see God's handprint.  I want to spend the 52 weeks of this year sharing with you these stories from past or present times in my life.  Giving God the credit and glory is my goal.
     So I will begin with the recent Christmas snowstorm of 2012.  It was the first snow on Christmas since 1926 and it was a whopper, 10 inches here.  At Christmas dinner in the basement, we prayed that our power would not go out to keep us warm and to keep my air machine powered.  There were over 100,000 homes across the state without electricity.  We were humbled and grateful that we only lost power for 15 minutes during the week of outages. I know 'It was a God thing' and I am truly grateful.  When so many friends were without power, you can see your own blessings more clearly.
