A beautifully, gorgeous day outside. Bright pretty sunshine, a cool breeze, every thing is just lovely. My Husband and I were out in our school room, trying to prepare. . .sitting on the floor, putting a shelf together, nice conversation. My sweet children, working very hard today, were bringing schooling materials back and forth to be put away.

The LORD reigns,
let the nations tremble;
he sits enthroned between the cherubim,
let the earth shake. . .

Out of nowhere, the dog wakes up and begins to growl. We're like, what's bothering her? Then the ground begins to tremble, then shake, then rumble. My husband and I look at each other, and I'm like, do you feel that? Do you hear that? He says, it's an earthquake! The kids!! The kids were in the house, upstairs, the trees are swaying, the satellite dish begins to slam against the roof top. . .the kids!! I yell out, Sit down, guys! Sit down! But it's too late, there they came running into our arms. The girls a bit nervous, my boy just flat out scared and in tears.

Great is the LORD in Zion;
he is exalted over all the nations. . . .

We calm down as the earth stops shaking. We count our blessings and are thankful that we are safe. Sure, a few things fell and broke, but we are safe. We talk to family members and friends, near and far, and praise God that we are safe.

Let them praise Your great and awesome Name—
   He is holy. -Psalm 99: 1-3
