The one thing I do know is that God humbled me and made me realize the things we think that are important are not. I drive passed some of these neighborhoods everyday and never ever think about the people that live in them.. Honestly my neighbors next door, I do not think about their life and what they may need.
I realized we need to open our eyes and our hearts and help those around us..
So I did..God is amazing...God tells us to love our neighbors..Do we? Mostly I do not think so.
When you get out there to help one another. To come together to pick up small personal items and put them into piles. Because the home that once was there is completely gone.. When they took your hand just to say thank you for just the small things..It humbled me and I will never be the same..I took just a few pictures to remind my self. I am sharing these with you.. I have learned to look at people and wonder about the hurts and joys..To give hugs and then listen to them praising God just to be alive and not complaining about losing everything they have..
Our church and so many other churches have come together to help. Our communties have pulled together to help..People from other states to give a helping hand...Hours and hours volunteers have put in and they do not seem to mind.. They just want to help..
I know now my God is alive and I am truly blessed to be called one of his children.
May you realize the important things in life are not the things we have on this earth.
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,where moth and rest destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your tresure is there your heart will be also.
