In the aftermath of two hurricanes, I have much to be grateful for...
I know exactly where my family is and I don't have to wonder if they are well.
When I look up, I see a ceiling, not blue sky.
The kindness of my neighbors .
The people of Chain Electric of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, who left their homes and families to restore electricity to our small community.
When I walk into a room and flip a switch, the lights actually COME ON!(see above)
Lord, I am thankful for the small hardships of Hurricane Gustav, because it has made me realise how much I take for granted and just how spoiled I am in my life. I have everything I need, but still want more. Teach me contentment and how to live a life of simplicity. May the people of South Texas and South Louisiana find comfort and hope in You. Amen.
