By your power


The meadow in our garden looks tranquil but apparently it wasn't so late last night.  Lightening struck a big tree next door which came down on the electricity line, sending a power spike through the neighbourhood tripping switches and fuses and putting our telephones off the air.  We were away so missed the commotion.  Today the State Emergency Services volunteers were there with their chain saws setting things aright.

Reflection:
Psalm 74:12-13 New International Version
But God is my King from long ago;
he brings salvation on the earth.
It was you who split open the sea by your power;
you broke the heads of the monster in the waters.

  2. Oi, you were lucky to be away. Actually, in law such things are called an act of God!
    Our psalm today is a strong one and fitting our times, I think.

    2. If only we all saw and acknowledged God's more benign acts as acts of God . . .

  3. Such a pretty wave of blue. Are they forget-me-nots? It's always a treat to visit here and find the season opposite of ours.

  4. That a lovely perspective, and a very peaceful illustration of those verses. But you are so right, in French we have a say for what you explain : "il faut se méfier de l'eau qui dort" (be careful with quiet water)...

  5. 'setting life into perspective' - as among that chaos life continues growing, blooming into beauty and happiness. Sometimes even helped by chainsaws. Thank you very much for your always much awaited interpretations !

    Thank you as well very much for your kind participation. Please have a wonderful new week ahead.

    1. If we look past the irritations of 'life' to the beauty of nature (even in its wild times) there is wonderful calming influence.
