My son Timothy and his fiancée Karina planned on getting married last Friday at the court house. The judge however was scheduled to have surgery and couldn't perform the ceremony. Wednesday night, a week ago, my son calls and tells me they found a Pastor to marry them AND asks if they can get married in my home that Saturday???
"Of course... I can do this in 2 days right?" I thought to myself.
Well, RIGHT after Timothy and I had the wedding in my home conversation a horrible ice storm hit our area.
What a mess, power went out, trees were falling all around our house, guest were coming in from as far as San Diego.
We have a generator so my husband and I got busy cleaning and moving furniture around. I could vacuum with a long extension cord and do dishes the old fashioned way. We had one pretty big problem though...All the businesses in the area lost power too. I had no food, no flowers, no way of getting my hair done ~ The wedding was at 4 pm on Saturday, what in the world could I do!?!
Let go and PRAY!
And that's what I did. Lord knows I wasn't in control-Just took me a minute or two to realize it.
It was a let go and let God moment.
Here are some pictures around our house of the ice storm~
I took this picture last Wednesday, a few hours before my son called.
Then the ice storm hit.
It's amazing the beauty an ice storm leaves-The birds in this photo are called Varied Thrushers.
This Japanese Maple in the front of our house actually survived!
Pictured is the curly willow that was in last Wednesday post...Amazing the difference a week can make. This tree fell over during the storm.
As did the beautiful Cherry Blossom tree in our front yard. My husband and I went out on Friday in the rain and resurrected 3 major trees-He had to do a bunch of trimming, we hope they survive.
Part two coming soon...
