As I sit here tonight, I have realized now more than ever how blessed I am. I cannot sleep, for I feel so much hurt for those who have been affected by Hurricane Gustav. I have sat and watched the news, I have seen the devastation, the loss, the destructive paths, the loss of homes, business, and the pure existence of life. I have seen the heroic efforts of doctors, nurses, and parents. The ones who put there needs aside, and have put so much effort in making sure others were taken care off. The sick, disabled, and those who have no where to turn or to go. There are so many without, and there are those who are simply living moment to moment, minute by minute. How could I ever think that I am doing without. I have electricity, I have shelter, I have food and necessities, and most of all, I have my family.I even feel guilty for having all these blessings. I think that this tragedy had made me realize that no matter what happens, there is always hope. Hope is what keeps us alive, for me anyway. There is always tomorrow, a new day, A clean slate, a new beginning. I have racked my brain tonight trying to figure out what I could do to make these people's lives better, for they have been through so much , and lost everything. Should I go to these shelters, prepare a warm meal, give them clothes, or simply just talk to them. I want to do my part. But, it hit me, JUST PRAY. There is such much power in prayer. We may not get the answer we want, but the Lord is listening. How He chooses, and when
He chooses to respond is up to HIM, and HIM only. God's way are not our ways, and are above our thinking. But, we can rest assure, He hears, and He will respond in His time. God bless those in this tragedy, and bless those who are willing to put their lives on the line in order to safe another. There is always a rainbow waiting for us on the other side. God Bless everyone.
