Let There be Light

Just when I was almost at my WITS END.
We followed SANDY in the Caribbean Sea while on our Cruise.
We made it HOME Saturday Night.
We LOST our LIGHTS and POWER on Monday Night
I pretended to GRIN and BEAR it...NO LIGHTS...NO POWER...NO HEAT...NO GAS.
I carried a bag to WORK everyday...LOADED with my LAPTOPS and other CHARGERS, that would hopefully keep me CONNECTED to the WORLD.
I had to CHARGE everything at WORK...since I had NO POWER.
I could have stayed with FAMILY, because SOME of them had POWER.
I wanted to EXPERIENCE what it felt like to have NO POWER.
FLASHLIGHTS...BASEBALL BAT...PEPPER SPRAY...BB GUN...POLICE SCANNER...SLEEPLESS NIGHTS...COLD...PROTECT MY CASTLE!!!
1 night...2 nights...3 nights...4 nights...WHEN WILL THIS END???
On Tuesday I spent $40 on GAS
It gave me a little over HALF a TANK.
I THOUGHT I was FINE...till I SAW the LINES
Gas Stations had NO POWER.
This evening after getting HOME, I went to SEARCH for GAS....FOOLISHLY using the GAS I HAD !
After SEARCHING for 3 hours...and down to ONE QUARTER TANK...I TEXTED (not a word)
THESE WORDS...
I GIVE UP...I'M CRUSHED!
As I got to my BLOCK and made the RIGHT turn...I saw the STREET LIGHTS on the first half of the BLOCK , as usual!
As I looked a LITTLE FURTHER...expecting to see DARKNESS...the STREET LIGHTS on MY END were ON.
When I pulled in my DRIVEWAY and looked up to the BEDROOM...I SAW THE LIGHT!
Thank you GOD...for YOUR POWER!!!
