Friday the 27th

I thought out my day and plans were in gear
Some music for worship and a sermon to hear
Time with my brother and time with a friend
Unlimited minutes, conversing no end
An e-book to read, a movie for fun
And chat with a friend who's feeling undone
But suddenly plans were all blown away
When the power went out in the mid of the day
So now there's no phone, computer or lights
Just absolute silence and darkness of night
I hope I'll be able to sleep through it all
Till the power's restored and I awake to a call
But God in His glory has already heard
The prayer that I spoke and He answered each word
By sending me neighbors who care and support
By giving me help to hold down the fort
Angels of mercy, truly God-sent
Our friendship together is no accident
