Hurricane Harvey: Losing Everything

"It's all gone.
Everything.
Shocked can't describe it,
I guess.

Seven feet of water?
Are you kidding me?
How can this...or we...
and now we still got a foot out here in the street days after?

I don't know...

We've been here 34 years.
Now our kid's pictures are torn up.
Family trips up north.
Their letters from elementary school.
I guess they're only a memory like they say, you know?

Thirty-four years,
everything was okay here.
Now thirty-four years has been washed away, just like that.

But we're still standing, I guess.
I mean,
aren't we?" 

A voice that reflects the same thought of so many devastated by the flood waters of Harvey in Texas (and, now, even those left in Irma's path). So many asking the same questions. If you feel led to extend a helping hand there is always something you can do.

  1. Pray consistently and specifically for those affected.
  2. Give to a relief organization that is helping in the recovery process (do your research and pray about which to choose).
  3. If you are free and/or able, give of your time at some point. Whether that means collecting supplies or heading to locations for rebuilding.

The recovery process will be going on long after it's reported. May God work in all our hearts to help our neighbors who are hurting no matter what storm they are affected by.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.”
