"Double Blessing challenges us to reframe our perception of blessing, seeing God's gifts as opportunities for increased generosity." —Pastor Louie Giglio

The first 2 trees that fell at our house hit the garage. I went outside to get my chainsaw out of my truck to cut some limbs to get our generator in position. Kathie followed me outside. I turned and yelled for her to get back in the house. Returning with the chainsaw, I saw a tree topple where she had been standing. My prayer probably lasted only 3 seconds, but it was as intense as anything I have ever prayed. “Oh God, please let her be OK.” With a flashlight I began probing under the fallen tree. No Kathie. Then I looked toward the house & saw her waving to me through a window. I think that was only the 2nd time in 25 years that she ever listened to me. The 1st being when I asked her to marry me! Nevertheless, I praised the Lord when He spoke to Kathie.
