If I didn't have access to Facebook today, I'd probably be wallowing in self-pity.
I do not do well with a change of plans. Inconveniences really stress me out.
The short of it: we don't have power. But we're okay.
The other side of the story: my cousin lost her house. My friend had a tree hit her home. They are okay physically, but I'd say they're having a lot rougher of a day than I am.
Honestly, my heart is breaking for my cousin, and all those who have suffered serious consequences of this storm. And I'm at a loss as to what to say. I can only pray. But I almost don't even know how. I just sort of mourn-pray, if that makes sense. And I hope that the Holy Spirit will do the intercession for me, because my soul just can't muster up the words.
And I can't believe that earlier today, I was asking, "Why us??" to Elliott, when all we're dealing with is lost power, and my cousin actually doesn't have a place to live or clothes to wear, other than the ones on her back.
I am ashamed by my self-pity.
And I am heartbroken for my cousin.
Please pray. I don't know how or in what way, just say the prayer that's on your heart for my cousin, and all those who have experienced tragedy during the storm.
