Feeling powerless when the lights go out

Feeling powerless when the lights go out

My relationship to power outages changed on Thursday, September 9 when it was, in fact, raining pretty hard. The crack of a falling tree woke me at 2 a.m., and the house quivered slightly. I got up to look around and discovered the house was intact. However, the power was out. It was hard to get back to sleep, as I pictured the creek flooding up the driveway (again), the next tree smashing through the roof. I tried to regain a sense of security by praying, and eventually, in the midst of paraphrasing the Lord’s Prayer, I fell back asleep.
