VBS and The Storm
Friday night was the program and Josiah wanted no part of singing with his class. I decided it would do him no good to sit and watch his class so I stood beside him. He had quiet tears running down his face through the whole song.
Aliza, on the other hand, was the singer in her class. She did the motions and we could hear her voice loud and clear! She was nervous, but she did great.
Instead...soon after we got home it started pouring rain and the wind started blowing. I really can't describe the wind and the rain. All I know is that I looked out the sliding door and the wind was doing some kind of swirly thing in the tops of the trees and the rain was going sideways. And then limbs started falling. I walked to the front windows and saw this--
Karen shared a little later that earlier in the week she had felt a heavy negative feeling that led her to praying for protection over her family. I'm so thankful she did pray. Jeremy landed safely about 8:30.
Saturday morning it was time to start cleaning up. Chore charts aren't really my thing, but when there's a job to do I expect everyone to participate and I'll teach by example. Josiah helped Jeremy fix the chainsaw and us girls started hauling limbs to the brush pile. (The brush pile that was very recently just about completely cleared!!) The girls weren't exactly willing helpers, but we stuck with it. Josiah hauled loads on his Gator.
