I'm never sure how much stcok to put into reports that we are about to be hit by a storm of 'historic proportions'.  On one hand, I don't wish to be dismissive of the reports.  On the other hand, I don't wish to be overly cautious, only to find that the reports were exaggerated.  So... I'm in New York, I hear the reports, I consider the Big Apple gridlocked under a foot of snow, I wonder at what the driving conditions might be like as I drive closer to the center of the storm's projected track (East/Central Massachusetts), and I need to make a decision.

And the decision is this:  Pray.  When neither decision has 'peace' wrapped around it, pray.

This morning, I prayed.  A decision was made.  We left Brooklyn at exactly 6:00am.  By 6:12am, precipitation had begun.  First rain.  Then it gradually changed over to snow.  And then... after about a half-hour, we outran Nemo.  Clear roads, overcast skies, and lovely driving conditions prevailed all the way to Holden, MA, where we arrived at 9:30am.  By the time we unpacked the car, it was snowing, and within 15 minutes of our arrival, the ground - bare for our entire three and a half hour journey - was now covered in snow.

In spite of our best attempts to avoid Nemo, Nemo found us.  But only once we had arrived here in Holden, feeling good to be with our family.

God has provided and protected.

Some people would question and argue about the providence of God in all of this:  Would he really hold the storm back until the two of us arrived here safe and sound?  I suppose it is up for anyone to debate that.  All I know is this:  He did!!!  Thank you Lord for your provision for Diane and I this day.  Thank you that only now are we finding Nemo finding us.  Thank you for your love.

  • Hi there would you mind letting me know which webhost you're utilizing? I've loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a honest price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
