Think on These Things



Hello friends, I trust you are having a good week. My heart has been so heavy from thinking of all the suffering brought on by Hurricane Harvey.  I haven't been watching the news, but hear talk of stories concerning lost of life, etc.  I have been fighting, trying not to fall deeper in the depths of depression.  I am of no good to myself or anyone in such a state!
But it is hard when such disaster is so close to home. I pray for all, those who have lost so much,for those who have extended help, who have put themselves in harms way to rescue people and animals in threatened situations.
Where there are stories of dread and sorrow, there are also stories of miraculous survival.  I will try to think on those things and to be thankful.


Thank you all who were concerned for me as I live in Texas. Only about 300 miles from Houston. We are feeling mild effects from the hurricane here. A drop in temperature, most welcomed!
It has been a bit of respite from the usual heat we feel at this time of the year.

There is always something to be thankful for. Sometimes it may be hard to see, but even in the darkest circumstances.........there is light at the end of the tunnel!

God is in control, may his will be done! Phillipians 4:8

  4. Thank you, Shelley, for letting us know you are safe. My prayers continue for those who were in the path of the storm.
    You are right to guard your mind from the harshest of the news. You know what to pray for and that is all that is needed. Praying for a steadying and comfort of your mind and that no depression will come from this.
    Love,
