August 20

After trying times and things start to ease up, there is a great sense of relief. The storm is over! After posting about my mom and dad's tornado experience and the destruction that they had to deal with, their phones never stopped ringing and there was a steady stream of visitors checking on them. I watched a community coming together, willing to jump in and help in any way they could. It did my heart good to see! On top of all that, my nephews, their friend, and my brother all got up on the roof to get it covered until a roofer could get there to repair it. There is good in this world, we just have to pay attention. Wouldn't it be nice if, during a tragedy, the news would point to the heroes and to those who jump in to help without any concern for themselves? For our hearts to heal, we need to see God's love in action and to show that what the enemy set out to destroy, God's bigger plan of love will prevail!

Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:2 & 9-10
