Today the winds were upon us, at 60 miles an hour. The wind blew shingles off many houses, overturned dumpsters, cracked telephone poles in half, and blew street signs and trees down. We were out in all of it, just trying to navigate. I watched tall light poles and flag poles waving back and forth in the wind, and was hoping they wouldn't fall on our car. I felt the car sway back and forth and even wondered if it might overturn. Power lines were down and many lost electricity. On the way home we came to a road that was closed, and my pictures show why. The wind had cracked a huge pine tree over at the base of the trunk, and the men were cutting it up and getting rid of it. The tree on my header is yet another one that had fallen in a field. Fallen like they were nothing.
"To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy-to the only God our Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and evermore! Amen.
