Pay it forward?

These seas are calm, for now.

If you have been watching the news you may have heard about the storm brewing out east in the Atlantic. Maybe we watch just a little more carefully now that we live here but the weather people make sure we know what is happening all along the coasts. Tomorrow the local weather will be sending planes over the disturbance to see if it is a tropical storm with hurricane possibilities or not. All those in the path of this storm, regardless of its category, could use our prayers right about now. The rains are falling, the waves are pounding about 15 feet in height and none of that is a good thing.

Also, now is the time more disaster help is needed. The tornados that hit Greensburg, Kansas are devastating, to say the least. They have put out a request for volunteers to just come in and help the residents go through their belongings and see what, if anything, they can salvage. This is an extremely tough time for everyone in this small town. We know what it looks like when you are wiped off the map with a hurricane and tornados are just as deadly and savage. This would be a great time to rally some troops from your church, your community or your families and send some help in the way of financial or material if you yourselves cannot physically get there. If you would be able to get there and don't know how to go about it, contact your church, or any church, or go through the Convoy of Hope website at www.convoyofhope.org for information. We have seen what a life changing difference the slightest bit of help can bring.

In Esther 4:14 it states "Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" Is this your time to help, to allow people to see Jesus through you? Take it to prayer and listen for God's response, then follow what He says! You'll never be sorry you did!

Until tomorrow . . Susan and Monty
