Power of Prayer

It’s the third consecutive day that we have been snowed in. I had thought that I would have time to read, reflect and get organized while my two children frolicked in the snow. Instead, my days have been filled with cooking meals, cleaning up and doing laundry after changing wet, dirty, snowy clothes into wearable garments. We have gone through almost 3 gallons of milk making hot chocolate.

The highlight of the first day was walking a mile from our home in Atlanta to sled down a long hill. There, we met up with friends and ran into acquaintances. The highlight of the second day was shoveling off our own driveway and that of our neighbors. After being cooped up, it was a welcome change to be out in the fresh air engaged in physical activity.

Stuck at home, we have seen a lot of our neighbors, and it has reminded me of the importance of community — real community.
