Rock and Roll
Last night we, here in Oklahoma, had a 5.6 earthquake at 11pm. It lasted close to half a minute. It is one of the strongest I've experienced since I was a kid in Seattle. Two of my kids were awakened and my oldest, who was awake, all showed up in the living room, asking me what was going on. I told them it felt like it was between a 5 and a 6. I didn't know how right I was until this morning! But what a ride! It is exhilarating at the same time it is terrifying. Our whole house shook as if it were on rails. No damage done--but it sounded like we had monsters in the closets. It felt like I was "home" again in Auburn (near Seattle), Washington.
We really are not in charge. God has us right in His hands.
Addendum: We had another experience about 8 pm Saturday night. It was "only" a 4.6. But we were fully aware of the experience. It was quite interesting to have a thunder storm with a threat of tornadoes, at the same time an earthquake is rocking the house. Wow! What is God trying to tell us?!
