"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12



“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

Hurricanes

Please join me in prayer for my family in Cuba that was devastated from Hurricane Gustav and was completely wiped out of everything (what little they had) with Ike. The devastation in such a poor country is horrific and Cuba has denied assistance from the U.S.

I also want to lift up my wonderful friends from Texas and the many other states that have suffered from Ike's wrath. Having lived through Andrew, I know the feeling of loss and devastation well. If you were blessed enough not to lose your possessions, you may still be dealing with all the remnants that hurricanes bring including loss of power, water and the many conveniences that we take for granted daily. May God continue to keep your families safe and may your recovery be quick.
