Well lo and behold
A little depression over Jamaica turned into a full-blown storm named Nicole!
She was scary because she was sneaky
no one really expected her to be anything
a little rain with some gusty winds,
but she was more!
With the clap of her hands and the flash of her jewellry
she was destructive
she tore down- houses and roofs
she built up- gullies turned into sidewalks
And when she was finished she moved on leaving her groupies behind
and became just a wave to Florida.
Happy to say that all is well now that lights are back in our household.
It is still very wet but they say that there will be rain way into next week
The plus side to this of course would be that the reservoirs must be all filled after this tremendous downpour.
After a storm it is hard not to reminded how fragile life is.
I say a prayer for those who lost their lives to the raging flood waters caused by Nicole.
I am forever thankful that
that my children have life
that the hubbie has life
and that I have life to enjoy them all.
Thank you God for all that is good and thank you for Life
I am also thankful that I have a roof over my head that is strong
and has only a few leaks
I am thankful that we have food on the table
and when the lights were off I was and I am still thankful that we have gas and a gas heater!
Thank you God for all that is good
Keep safe everyone.
