Came home today and since the weather was so nice I washed up load of towels and hung them on the line to dry.....it is one of my favorite things to do like I have told you before. Simple thing.......all today I have thought so much about all the eastern states and what they have lost. I thought as I was hanging my towels.....some ladies were probably doing that last week and now their lives have changed! When you think about it......it has such huge ramifications on each life....it must be so hard to get things done these days for each family.....not like you can go about your day like you used to! It has been so hard to think of what it would be like if there was a disaster here of some sort. I used to feel like I was prepared.....but wondering if maybe I am not. Are you prepared for a disaster? Also be praying for families who have lost family members. Thank you!!!!!
God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not fear, even if earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea. Psalm 46:1-2
This is a powerful verse to hold on to. It is so good to meditate on the truth, especially in the day of trouble. He won't leave those who call on His Name!
I just put a comment up on my PFFfbook on some ideas of ways we can help. One of the girls said that Samaritan's Purse is taking donations. Franklin Graham started Samaritan's Purse, he is Billy Graham's son. A very reputable organization. You can read about it HERE When you read the article you will see that they are needing Volunteers to help with Hurricane Sandy and donations.
I received a picture from Becky that she put on my PFFfacebook of the picnic basket I made up for them. It looks so cute out there on the prairie! Thought you might like to see it.
Hope your day is sweet!
