This week I am grateful for electricity.
When my sister and I were growing up, my parents used to have
where we would not use any electricity…
(of course, our well was electric, but they made us use the hose outside to get water. :))
My father collects kerosene lamps, so we always had light.
We had a gas stove, so we had heat/cooking abilities.
So basically it was just a day without laundry or television.
BUT IT WAS FUN!
… fast forward to our home now,
located on our parents property.
We have had modified electricity restrictions since we moved here
(read: lights, water)
and this last week, my husband, father, and grandfather put in a new electric line to our home so we could have
trenching for the wire
Thank You Lord, for those who help without asking,
for those who give without expecting anything in return.
May we in turn be a blessing to those around us.
