This weekend, Nashville was hit with the eye of tropical storm Harvey. Tornado sirens went off at midnight, and a number of people had to be rescued from their homes due to flooding.
But as I lay in bed listening to the wind and rain pelt against our house, I couldn’t help but think of the thousands of folks down in Texas who have been suffering for days. So many people have lost everything but the clothes on their back, and some have even lost friends and family.
Rescues are still ongoing, and I am so encouraged to see our nation, as well as those from across the world, step in to help. We all have our differences, but when tragedy strikes, those with true character are able to throw those differences aside and give aid to whoever needs it.
Even after the waters recede, the folks in Texas, as well as those in surrounding states that have been hit by Harvey or remnants of the storm, will need our prayer and financial support.
If you or someone you know has been affected by Hurricane Harvey, please post a comment so we can encourage you. If you have heard positive stories of people helping people, please share those, as well. And finally, if you have creative ideas of out-of-the-box ways to lend a hand, please tell us. Looking forward to hearing from you. #UnitedWeStand #TexasStrong
