SOUNDING OFF...


So after helping out several days with disaster relief work from a flood in our area, I am reminded again that my problems are nonexistent compared to these families who have lost 90% of the contents of their houses...

It's interesting...some neighborhoods get lots of press and help while others are forgotten.

Why don't more people come out and help? I just don't get it...if you can do a load of laundry you can help. If you can find some baby clothes for an 18 month old, you can help. If you can pack up a kitchen full of dishes, baking dishes, pots and pans, you can help. If you can tear out wet sheetrock you can help. If you can feed some hungry, hot volunteers, you can help!!!

Another thought as I help this woman pack up the contents of her closet...what do I have in my lower cabinets that could be damaged by a storm? Maybe I'll move my photo albums up a little higher!

AND...it just killed me to see other neighbors whose houses weren't affected out mowing and weedeating their lawns today...maybe they helped another day or something, but that just went all over me....

Sorry, I'm a little hot and tired right now. Pray for these "neighbors" as they pull their lives back together this summer!
