The question to stay or not to stay is a deeply personal decision, yet in the essence of a knowledge that we had a safe place in our home, I’m glad we did. Although it was a deeply terrifying and forever impactful experience, it also taught us so many eternal lessons.
~Togetherness, the strength of our home, preparedness, neighbors coming together, and ultimately the power of nature that no one has control over. Through it all, this was the most harrowing experience of my life. Yet one of the most keen interpretations of the strength to rebuild and the hope that we will.
~Is it devastating, absolutely, but in the same right, it is synonymous of life’s ebbs and flows. Just like the hurricane blew it’s furry and ravaged my new city beyond reprieve, it also solidified in my heart the power of redemption. A reminder of the importance of walking through all of life, no matter what may come, in a true posture of gratitude. No matter what.
“Grace abounds in deepest waters.”
