Yesterday was a busy day and I didn't get the chance to post. I want to document the fact that we had quite a severe thunderstorm come through here on Thursday night.
Hubby and I stood in the center of the trailer while the wind whistled like crazy around us, and hail beat against the side and windows. We were sure a window must break, but, praise God, they all survived the storm intact.
The roof, however, lost a good many shingles and parts of shingles. We found them all the way out at the edge of our woods. Also a window in the sewing room had rain in the blind, so it needs to be sealed. I called in an insurance claim and then contacted a local roofer. He came and covered the questionable areas of the roof incase we have more rain before it can be fixed. I'm hoping we can replace this shingle roof with a metal one.
The amazing thing to me is what the storm did to the garden fence. It's just a nylon mesh type of fencing material, and yet it was able to catch enough wind to be blown over........metal fence stakes bent at almost a right angle !
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
