Who Are We
We should be jealous. . . for the honour of His name – troubled when it remains unknown, hurt when it is ignored, indignant when it is blasphemed. And all the time anxious and determined that it shall be given the honour and glory which are due to it.” John Stott

Why candle light is no longer romantic....
Because it means that the power is out...again! One of the most difficult things for me since moving into our house has been the power outages. Every night around 8 pm, the power goes out until around midnight, and then it is usually off and on through the night. Wayne wants to know why I'm whining when he is giving me whole candle lit evenings, not just a candle lit dinner :) Thankfully, this weekend we got a system installed in our house that involves 2 big car batteries and an inverter. The way it works (I think) is that when the power is on, the batteries charge, and then as soon as the power goes off, certain things in our house (ie. fans!) switch over automatically to the batteries. We are sooooo thankful to have this system installed as we can now have fans running all night (!!!!!) and have some light at night, as well has have our internet on and use our laptops when the power is out. Thank goodness for electricians who understand how the magic works!
