It can get pretty stormy up here in the Pacific Northwest. This Saturday offered a glimpse of the power of nature. We had gusting winds up to 50MPH and we surpassed the rainfall record for a September day: almost 2" and up to 3" in some of the outlining areas. I am sure you are thinking... it's Seattle, doesn't it always rains...you should be used to it. Well, sort of...we don't typically get flood warnings when it rains here. And, the power usually doesn't go out. Well the rain isn't the topic but I am sure we could tie it in theologically somehow. The issue is the power outage.
I think God has a great sense of humor. As a Generation X'er and I say that only to make a point about technology, we know what it was like before cell phones, internet, social media, etc. My kids...not so much! It was a Saturday afternoon. I was home alone with the kids, each diving into some I-have-to-do-it-now project. My oldest was doing homework. (I know, right!) The two middle girls were conquering the world in some penguin adventure game online. And my son and 2 years old were honing their ninja skills watching Ninjago on Netflix. I was taking advantage of some distracted kids and proceeded to get some World of Warcraft time. I admit, not the best way to spend the day but I figured if they were going to cancel my daughter's soccer game its best we just stay inside!
