Earthquake, Hurricane and Flooding

Well, this has been our life for the last 2 weeks, I think. Currently, NEPA is suffering from major flooding in our area. I am greatful that we are safe and dry. 4 AM this morning we were trying to stop the water from flowing through our basement - 2 sump pumps,  shop vac, 5 gallon buckets and a mop were  used to get the water out. Unbelieveable all the rain that fell last night. It was like buckets of water were being thrown at our home.

With all this destruction and uncertainty, I need to keep in mind that God is not surprised by all this. He is still on His throne, working all this out for our good and His glory-don't know how but He is faithful. I need to keep this in mind as I just feel depressed with all this going on in our area. And all the people that have been evacuated from their homes and lost their personal belongings and some do not even have flood insurance. Last week, we traveled to NY to pick my Dad up because he was being evacuated due to Hurricane Irene and now people in NEPA are in the same situation due to Hurricane Lee.

God's people keep praying!
