Sabbath Moments

Sabbath Moments is a weekly meme hosted by Colleen at Thoughts on Grace. These are the times when we "let go and let God" and live in the present moment :

I wanted to share a picture that made me laugh! With most of the city without power this week I'm not sure how well this went over with some people but it sure tickled my funny bone!

Love it! We lost power again yesterday right after I went grocery shopping (Murphy's Law) and my husband sent me this picture from his cell phone. I'm glad people haven't lost their sense of humor :)

The kids went back to school yesterday. Is it rude to jump for joy? (Hey, at least I'm honest.) It's not that I don't enjoy having my house full of kids but quiet time gives me a chance to put my inner house in order. I went to Mass, prayed the Rosary, and had the opportunity to spend some extra time in intercessory prayer. I felt spiritually recharged after. Got power? Yes, thank you, Lord...I do.

  5. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. For sure. And I love your pun on power. You bet we got power. The Almighty.

    For some reason at Mass this morning I felt called to pray in my heart the "Holy God, holy Mighty One" prayer.

    You made me smile today as you so often do.

  6. Colleen,
    In some ways life is more peaceful without electricity...just don't tell anybody I said that ;) I like heat, hot water and stuff but the world is less noisy without electricity. I suppose I'd hate it if it was permanent though!
