Well, I sit here and am waiting to feel the impact of Hurricane Sandy. I live in Maine, so we should only feel the remenants of the wind and rain... the coastal areas will be harder hit. As we prepare for this storm, I realize that nothing is in my control.
I mean, yes, I can fill containers of water, get my wood in, close up doors and windows and secure any outdoor furniture. But I can't control the wind, the rain and how the power is sure to go out. We can only prepare so much and the rest must be left in God's hands.
I pray that God will provide safety for my family and watch over us, but no matter what happens I know that He is in control and for that I am prepared.
So prayers go out to all who are experiencing Sandy today and my the Lord be with you.
