As I watch the devastation caused by Hurricane Irene, I am reminded how much we take for granted. We flip a switch and a light comes on. When it’s cold we turn the thermostat up and expect instant heat. When it’s warm we adjust the thermostat for cooler air. Those of us that live in the Pacific Northwest, I am sure, cannot begin to imagine what it is like to experience the damage, inconvenience and loss of our Eastern neighbors. We may have winter flooding some years, but seldom is it as widespread as what the East has seen these past few days. My heart goes out to all of you that are suffering.
You are all in my prayers.
