For those who are Hurting

I woke up early this morning delighted to find patches of blue in the sky and the sun peeking out between the clouds. We have lots of work to do this weekend. There are so many leaves to clean up and on top of it the destruction Hurricane Sandy left behind. While the sun was out I wanted to get some pictures to document the damage on our property.

Yeah I know it's not a big deal especially in comparison to what others have suffered. It's absolutely heartbreaking to see and hear of what people have lost. No matter what your loss big or small it's still difficult. We just bought our first home and we're living in a new state. We are clueless as to what to do when something like this happens. I suppose we learn as we go. Just the little things produce anxiety. Like how do I clean all this up and where do I take all the pieces, does someone come and pick this stuff up? As I was walking around taking pictures I discovered another home that was lost but this home belonged to a bird.

As I thought about this beautiful nest, the following song came to my mind and I found it so encouraging.

Peace be to those who are hurting you're in my thoughts and prayers!

  1. I didn't realize you were affected at all--aren't you in a Carolina now? You'll have to fill me in. I'm sorry about that damage, any damage is unreal and hard to believe, so I understand...

    I LOVE that poem!
