“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!”
~ 1 Chronicles 16:34 (ESV)
It may be a strange theme to be thankful for; let me explain. A couple week’s ago I read Terri Blackstock’s novel “Last Light“. It was one of those books that I could not put down; I finished it in one weekend. I had it on my Nook since Christmas, but never had a chance to read it.
At any rate, this novel was about electricity; more the lack of it. An EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) knocked out all power world-wide. The story was about a family in Birmingham, Alabama and how they dealt with living without electricity…
Believe me, I so felt for the family. I was thinking about how I would fare with having no electricity; not well, that is for sure. I wouldn’t know how to cook, or hunt for food. I don’t even own a gun! I think that I would be dead in the first two weeks without power. Sad, but true.
These days, every time I turn on the light, get in the hot shower, or even turn on the stove, I am thankful for the convenience I have. I know that I take a lot for granted, and the novel reminded me once again, that we cannot take these conveniences for granted; they might be gone tomorrow.
So, what are you thankful for this week? Please do share with us by leaving a link to your Thankful Thursday post below.
Thank you for stopping by today. Remember: don’t take today’s conveniences for granted; they may not be there tomorrow.
