Musings 12, Together

August 30, 2017

“We strolled the lane together.” In southern Texas the lanes have turned into rivers and the land into lakes.

“Laughed at the rain together.” Harvey, hurricane and tropical storm, left no one in the region laughing as it dumped rain for days, as much as 50 inches in some places, flooding homes and businesses. Three feet of water submerged roads, turning them into fast moving rivers. It is said to be the worst storm ever.

“One day we cried together.” Shelters are overcrowded with victims of the violent storm that lasted for days and wiped out entire neighborhoods. The death toll stands at 18, but some are still missing.

“We’ll always be – together.” Dramatic rescues were seen as people were taken from roof tops and rescued from submerged cars by heroic responders. States from across the country sent help to Texans in trouble. A convention center was available for the emergency. Somehow it sheltered 10,000 people. Food and water and blankets became available, and even baby diapers were provided. That’s how it is in this country. There are many willing and able to help those in trouble. It’s well worth noting that a disaster can bring out the best in people. God bless us, everyone of us, and hold us together.

(Genesis 28:15) And behold I am with thee and will keep thee. I will not leave thee.

(Joshua 1: 9) Be strong and of good courage, and be not afraid or dismayed. For the Lord is with thee wherever thou goeth.

(Psalm 48: 14) God is our God forever and ever. He will be our guide even unto death.
