Update: Hurricane Sandy

Good Morning!
I am writing this from my mom's house, because she has power.
My house is just fine, Praise God!
But, we have no power.
This is a drag to say the least, but nothing in comparison to the devastation that so many others have endured.
I have a dear friend whose house was flooded and many many others that are less than a half mile from my house that are completely underwater.
They say that they will not get to helping them with their electricity for another month, due to the fact that oil is spilled all over the area from homes, making the area unsafe for workers.
In the tri-state area, there have been deaths.
And stories of mothers and children dying trying to escape this hurricane.

As for us, we might have to wait another 10 days to get electricity, it is cold making it hard to stay at our home and there is a gas shortage for our cars and anyone who is trying to fuel a generator. 
But, my family is blessed to be safe and to have family.  And great neighbors who share a generator with us when they can.

Please pray for those in devastion, without family and pray for safety.  There has been looting in our area, making it hard to decide to stay home and watch the house or go to a family member's and stay where it is warm.

Pray for the workers, for their safety, as they work long hours to try and restore everyone's electricity and keep everyone safe.

God is good.  All.  The.  Time.
