Reflections from Sandy. Part 1

It's been a while since I've updated my blog.. my apologies.  Our life was substantially turned upside down when Sandy hit just a little over 6 weeks ago.

The cliche' of "you don't know what have until it's gone" is something we have been hearing over and over again over the past 6 weeks.

The isolation of our neighborhood is mocking to those of us still here.

Our close knit shore neighborhood was hit extremely hard by Sandy.

She wiped most of it out. 90% of it at least is uninhabitable. People are gone, Homes are gone, Memories remain, but the place where those memories we made are GONE.

This blog post is even hard for me to write.. How do I effectively communicate the loss, yet expressly communicate how blessed we were through it all?

My heart is torn between those who lost it all..and myself who by the grace of God did not.

I still have a hard time fathoming why... I know I can't question God or why he does what he does. I know only that it is His will for all.

We have been living by blind faith for quite sometime now. Blind faith in trusting God for our every need, our every want... He has provided for us in His time, by His will.

It's humbling to live this way.

Much of our community is now living this way.

We were so blessed to be able to help our neighbors during Sandy.. We were so blessed to be able to witness to some.. To remind some.. that why though this is tragic, Our God is a loving, caring God who loves them. That HE will supply their every need. That HE is there for them. 

WE were only the instruments in HIS orchestra. All the players came together perfectly.. the way God wanted them to.

 Psalm 40:10
I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help. I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness from the great assembly.

More to come...............
