Winds over Door County   Leave a comment

A few weeks ago, Door County was hit with  the fiercest wind storm in many many years.  The damage was extensive and some folks were without electricity for seven days.  We were fortunate to get electricity back within the day and then were able to bless another family with food and showers as they needed.

I have to admit that I do like it when it blows now and then as wind is one of the parts of nature that man cannot control.  As a fishing family we know that well.  We can pray and pray and sometimes God stills the winds and sometimes He knows better the plan for the day and the winds continue.  That is when I rest in the Sovereign God of the universe who is the one who is in charge, and knows best!

The damage has kept us busy with clean up and we won’t be done with that until into November.  Our days are filled with the end of the fishing season and it has been the windiest October in years.  Today it is supposed to start to blow again, and powerful winds that could really knock out our trap nets and end fishing for the season earlier than the closing day which has been extended to Oct. 30th.  We are praying that God will change the winds, we will see what God does!

John 3:8

The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound if it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes.
