Lights out!!!

Published October 29, 2014 by emmaperez1961

As it so happens we were negligent in paying our light source and as a result (You guessed it!) we were cut off. Frantically, we were all trying to figure out what went wrong. When we had realized and try to pay the bill it was to late in the day. It happened Friday afternoon and we had no choose but to be in the dark for the whole weekend. (Bummer!!!)
But not all was lost though. Our Landlord was a great help with a bit of electrical connection. We had enough for the fridge, a lamp or two and a power strip to charge our smart phones. With technology today and with the internet was the only way we survived the weekend. If you want to call it that!
For the boys and my husband, I’m sure they were entertained with the things they usually do with they’re smartphones, but as for myself it was quite different since I recently received a smartphone. As if God forced me into some quiet time this weekend, as if to say “I need to talk to you.”
As I sat in the darkness with my smartphone, on YouTube looking for how to make ‘wedding journals’, it evolved into ‘Prayer Journals’. How to stay organized and spend more time with Him. And there were other journals. And they just kept going on and on! Embellished ones and colorful ones! My heart was just so excited and still is!
Monday the bill was payed and Tuesday the lights were all back on. Praise God!!!
I did take the time and took notes because I didn’t want to forget all that He shared with me over the weekend. But it just like Christ to do these kind of things. In the darkness, He shows you the light! He’ll take the circumstance your in to show or to teach you something. So don’t forget that. With Christ theirs always a purpose. Of course, you won’t see it the moment. You’ll just see it as an inconvenience. I don’t know. Maybe, eventually, I would have clicked on these videos but I don’t think I would have gone in depth like I did with them this weekend.
So definitely, I can’t wait to get started on a few of these journals. Staples, here I come!! lol


Still hanging around!

Hi everybody!
With working at the bakery and almost making a yr. October 30th. To be exact. I’ve been trying to stay focus and learn as much as I can to keep myself above water. It hasn’t been easy but it has payed off. What I didn’t do was make any volgs. Just a short brief one on facebook and this was most recent. So with the holidays just around the corner I’m hoping to jump right in and try to catch up.
My son was sweet enough to buy me a smartphone and can’t wait to see all it can do for me. I did post a couple of videos on facebook from the phone but I don’t know if it works the same for wordpress. Need to figure that out tonight. I know you have to go thru you-tube first. So I’m not sure how that’s going to work. I of course know it’s do-able.
