When The Lights Go Out


We just had a 4 hour power outage here at the house. It has been raining all day and the lines apparently were too wet.

Electricity is something you take for granted and when its not there you really miss it. Things like Internet, TV, air conditioning, refrigeration, lights and other things are conveniences that have made our modern lives easier, better. It also can bring you together too with fewer distractions. I was able to chill out and relax away from the onslaught of media.

Friends, electricity has been a way to advance our culture, advance our lives. Without power our daily connections can be impaired. We also cannot be wasteful of it and remember it does cost us our hard earned wages. The way electricity is made is important too, it needs to be clean to produce and transmitted to everyone who needs it.

And God said, ‘Let there be light’ and there was light, but the Electricity Board said He would have to wait until Thursday to be connected.
