Speechless, but hopeful

Friday, September 2nd, 2005
I've not blogged in a few days, but not because I had nothing to say. We do not have television in our home, but, reading the news, I can imagine the horrors that the media must be playing endlessly. I'm speechless.

In light of the tragedy unfolding in our country in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, I could not think of anything to say that would add significant value to the blogosphere. I will share that as my family deals with our own medical crises, we continue to pray for those affected by hurricane Katrina. We pray for the health and safety of the men and women who are working tirelessly to rescue survivors. For the survivors, we pray for their recovery, their healing - both physical and emotional - and for their spiritual comfort, too.

I believe that true spiritual comfort can only come from our faith in the God of the Bible. To that end, I am delighted to read about the response that one company is taking to help the victims. In addition to responding with cash to support the relief efforts to meet people's immediate physical needs, they are also responding with God's Word, which will meet their long-term spiritual needs.

I have great faith in the American people and in their resolve to show charity and compassion to the afflicted, not only around the world, but here at home, too.

Speechless, but hopeful

I found myself getting so agitated from watching the news on TV this week that I had to stop. Besides whatever monetary contribution I can give, there is really not much more I can do physically to change the situation.

TV News likes to create worry. Worry short circuits my clear thinking. When I don't have clear thinking I am spinning my wheels running the same tape in my head over and over again thinking I'm making progress.
