Light a Candle

In the end, Hurricane Irene turned out to be a non-event for us.  No water in the basement, no loss of power, no limbs down.  The twigs and leaves scattered over the front lawn I can handle. 

People are very quick these days to blame natural disasters as some kind of message from God.  I can't quite figure out the logic behind that.  But then, when it comes to faith, there is no logic.  I can only imagine how many candles were lit to keep the weather at bay. Judging from this display at Target (which, in fact, shows just a fraction of the aisle), it is a very big business indeed.

  1. Very glad to hear that Irene was a non-event. Maybe all of those candles I lit did the trick! ;-)
