This is where the lightning entered our home...at the East front end looking at my house it traveled...who knows where...and then came out...
and here is a close up ... looks like a knife was pounded into the sheet rock
This is where the HUGE FLASH into my living room came out...
God in his GRACIOUS CARE...not one thing on fire..or even singed..amazing. Especially with some of the accounts I have heard of with Lightning!!
We are so thankful and fortunate....still have some of the "conveniences" to work out....back to watering lawn with move able sprinkler...opening garage door to go in and out...FINALLY telephone and Internet usage!
A few light bulbs out...and a few receptacles.
How THANKFUL...my fridge is okay...my AC...my sewing machine.....
HOW we do take things for granted...BE THANKFUL ALWAYS!!!
As DAVID says over and over in his Psalms.
O give thanks unto the LORD!
Be Merciful unto me.
Praise YE the LORD!

I apologize for delays in continued post on our series.
My home was hit by lightening a few weeks ago and we did not have Internet access.
The LORD was gracious in keeping us safe. Quite an experience!!
The lightening seems to have hit the phone lines outside and traveled to our home and a neighbors. Her printer was damaged. We lost several "conveniences" and thankful nothing major that we can't live without. Especially thankful it did not affect our AC that is a brand new unit! and HOT here. It took out the motor of our garage door opener...our computer Internet card....our sprinkler system computer...ouch! several breakers..but my husband fixed most..AND MY side of our heated blanket! OH NO...but, my husband doesn't use his! so I have a back up! YEA!
We never know what a day brings forth...I had also been caught in this rain as I walked home and just walked past where it hit! I entered my home and heard a most distressful CRACK I can't explain..as if a huge tree where slowing splitting and ready to fall..I expected my house! NO TREE..AMEN.
It entered in at a corner cracking a piece of siding and exiting at the other end of our house (same side) into my dining area near a window leaving a gash in the wall. I saw a huge flash as this happened from our hallway. No fire...no singes...my pets ran to safety.
PRAISE GOD for his kind mercies to us. A testimony of his care.
O GIVE thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name:
make known his deeds among the people. Psalm 150:1
