My heart is a little lighter. I received email from my good friend Simon who is a pastor between New Orleans and Houston. He and his family are safe. St. Casserole is safe. Chad and Crystal are safe. My friend E's parents are safe. We are all incovenienced, but they are safe. Yet there are so many who have perished. I have had no words. There are no words. I am going to make health kits today, cook chili for the people who are helping me, see about getting food and baby items to the families that have been relocated to our area, go through my closet to find items to donate, see about what can go on the trucks tomorrow. And pray.
My spirit feels brusied. But my heart is a little lighter.
