God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though the waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
This weekend we woke to some Good Vibrations—no, it wasn’t the Beach Boys playing on my alarm clock/radio, though that’s a cool song. Just after 7 a.m. Saturday morning, our bed started shaking like one of those coin-operated beds in a cheap motel. After mumbling “turn off the bed,” my husband sat straight up, “earthquake”! He’s astute like that. Turns out the epicenter of a 5.6 earthquake occurred just 53 miles from our house. Pretty close. So, with aftershocks looming, what’s the first thing my husband thinks of? “Isn’t that where Click’s Steakhouse is? I hear they have some of the best steaks around.” Glad he’s got his priorities straight. So, off to Click’s we went. We had a lovely road trip, and the meal was delicious. So thankful that no matter what we go through, God is our refuge and help in trouble, even an earthquake. Prayers to all affected.
