They say that the storm was not as bad as others but for some it was worst. Eighteen people lost their lives during this storm and one life lost is a tragedy. Many homes and businesses were destroyed. In one town in North Carolina the people cannot get back home because all of the roads and bridges were completely destroyed. Anything that happens to change the course of ones life can be very stressful and for some, things will never be the same.
Personally, I am sitting in this hotel room at 4 in the morning thinking about how the storm has disrupted our lives. But with all the disruption, my children and grandchildren are safe and sleeping in their own beds tonight and for that I am thankful. I thought about those who did not have insurance and don't have family around. Where are they sleeping tonight? I pray that God will be their covering and keep them safe. I want God to help me to be more of a blessing to others and not just lip service. I have come to realize that sometimes there are no answers for the question, why? One thing for sure is, tomorrow will come and life goes on.
I am looking forward to the sun rising this morning.
