Did you feel the earth quake this morning? If you live in Northern Illinois, you might have.
Sometime around 4:00 this morning, I woke up, felt the bed shaking, and heard the dishes out on our Dining Room hutch – rattling. “Do you think that was an earthquake?” I asked my husband. “Oh, it was probably an airplane or something,” he said in his first-words-of-the-morning grog.
An hour later, when I was fixing coffee and my husband was sitting at our kitchen table reading the news on his computer, he said “Whoa! There WAS an earthquake this morning! Listen to this . . . ” and he read me the CNN news report about this morning’s earthquake in our area. Estimated magnitude of 4.3. That’s a rare occurrence in these here parts.
Sitting down with my coffee to read from the One-Year Bible, I came to Proverbs 8:27-28: “I [Wisdom] was there when he established the heavens, when he drew the horizon on the oceans. I was there when he set the clouds above, when he established springs deep in the earth.” I was reminded of God’s power in creating the deep parts of the earth, and of his ability to see those parts now – along with everything else in the universe. Amazing.
Did any of you feel the earth quake this morning?
