Staring up at storm clouds today. They say these bring only rain.
I am so very thankful that my household, close friends, and family were all spared. I am touched by the sheer volume of text messages, emails, Facebook messages, phone calls I received from all over the world from people genuinely concerned about us. We are well and truly blessed.
Lord, help me to focus on my blessings, for everything can change in a moment. And even in after that moment, to rest in your comfort when all else seems lost.
I don’t know who this guy is, but I saw his picture come over the news this morning.
When all else is gone, there’s still a rocking chair after the storm. Who knows how many children and grandchildren have been comforted by the gentle swaying of this chair. May this man have the same comfort and peace in the midst of such chaos and devastation.
