Blessings of the Body

Today was an exhausting day to say the least.

It started at 4 am with Larry pounding on the door. As I frantically ran around the corner to see Karen and Larry standing there, Larry was saying the water was about to come in.

We picked up as much as we could and got it as high as we could. Not good enough. Within an hour there was about 3 feet of water in the apartment. Total that morning was just above my waist.

The water started to go down around 8:30 so we headed back downstairs to start the clean up. By 9 all sorts of people were showing up! We worked all day until almost 8 pm cleaning out all of the water logged contents of our apartment and the sullivans house.

I have to say that it is and was such a blessing to be a part of a family, the body of Christ. We had people coming from everywhere to help! It would have taken us all day to do it with just the 7 of us (Larry, Pam, Morgan, Karen, myself, Roy and Tiffany) but we got it done in about 12 hours! it is truly a blessing to be a part of such a wonderful family.

be good and do good!
