When something like I have been through happens I think to myself God has allowed it to force big changes in our life, changes that one would not have done otherwise. For our own good. In the blink of an eye, your whole world is changed and this causes one of two reactions....you either turn to God or you get angry and turn against Him. So that is part of the reason. He allows things that are seemingly very negative. There is a blessing in there someplace and something really good will come from it. I know that in my heart but while it is occurring there are days you feel like screaming out, why Lord, why!?
I do care so much for my pets and the wildlife. I can not bear to see any beautiful innocent creature of God suffering from man's hand! The animals seem to know this of me because they come to me. Of course, I will help them if only with a clean drink of water. They look so happy to find it in the yard and with such an enormous amount of debris scattered throughout the ground, the birds do not want to wonder as they normally would. The ducks I care for will not leave my yard since they showed back up after the storm.
God has shaken things up causing big changes in my life and every other critter and human who resides here. Some of it looks good while some of it appears to be unwarranted. There is misery and then all of a sudden there is such kindness I start to cry. Lots of emotions go through you in an experience like this. Getting it out is a big stress reliever!
But for right now, I just want to find a washing machine and dryer! Lol... it's going to be a while before any kind of normal returns I know that.
The next time anyone puts their clothes in the washer or turns on the faucet takes a hot shower or just makes a cup of coffee, think and thank God for it because you never know if it will be there tomorrow. The simple little automatic everyday things we take so much for granted are realized most when they are not there.
You can see the battered stripped trees, the bark on some trees completely removed from the winds, and what the roads look like with appliances scattered and or thrown to the curb inoperable.
