Just 6 miles from my home, there was devastation at it’s very worst experienced this past Friday. As a tornado outbreak moved through the Southern Indiana and Kentucky, homes were ripped from their foundations and lives were forever changed. Were it not for the grace of God, my family could have been caught right in the middle of it. We hunkered down in our basement and watched the news as the forecasters alerted us of what areas would be hit next. You expect the worse and pray for the best, but when it comes down to it, no one has control over it except the Lord. I believe that my family and home were spared for a reason. What the reason is… I can only begin to fathom. We have each other, our health, and our home, and now it’s time to make a difference with what we have.
For to whom much is given, much will be required.Luke 12:48
I know that the Lord spared us for a reason and now is calling us to do more, to make a difference, to be good stewards of our blessings. If you feel led to help in the relief efforts with a financial contribution, you can go here to do so where 100% of your donations will go to those affected communities. If you live locally and can help by giving of your time, let me know.
As a community, we will get through this.
We will be stronger than we ever thought possible.
If you have the means, use Lowes promos to save on supplies and go help out.
