With the captain gone during such times, I couldn't help but feel a bit anxious yesterday as I was preparing. This ole fashioned girl will do just fine, but I couldn't help think about the "what if's"...What if we run out of wood (we are running low but I think we will have enough for this week) What if I don't have enough food? (We do) What if one of us has an injury? (Depending on the injury or if one of us gets sick, I'm perfectly capable of treating it) So, I stopped those "what if" thoughts and rested in the fact that God has my back. He knows my husband is away in Haiti, that's no surprise to Him. I know He will take care of us.
I am praying that the food for the chickens lasts...I wasn't able to get to the feed store to get some more chicken feed. They went through it fast because they have been cooped up because of the weather. No grass for them to eat this time of year. :(
If our power stays on, I will be baking and making soap and lip balm today. Hunter will probably go up the road to play with a friend.
Hope everyone stays safe if you are in the path of this weather. Hunkering down for a couple days...sifting through was God is speaking to me about. He is giving me time to make sure I'm hearing Him right. :)
