Just a Reminder

Just a reminder to all of us, as we are going thru our day...

Did you wake up this morning and "couldn't find a thing to wear"?

Did you go to the cupboard and complain to yourself that there is nothing to eat?

Did you get in your car and go where you needed to go, take care of what you needed to take care of?

Did your family return home today after school, work, errands, etc.?

Remember the victims in Haiti, whose smallest concern right now is a matching outfit for the day.

Remember the victims in Haiti, who are very poor, and are at the mercies of the world to help them with food and clean water-reporters have seen these people rubbing their stomachs because they are hungry.

Remember the victims in Haiti, who have many road that cannot be used, who cannot go where they want to go and take care of things that are even desperately calling for their attention-looking for their missing loved ones, or helping family members across town to look for their loved ones.

Remember the victims in Haiti, and ask the Lord to forgive us for our murmuring, and ask Him to help these people.

If you cannot donate money or other items that local businesses may be collecting to help this country, then please be sure to lift your voice to God and pray for this devestated country.  It may be your prayer that causes a millionaire to donate.  It may be your prayer that causes a grieving family to be comforted.  It may even be your prayer that causes a buried victim to be found.

Just a reminder to remember the people in Haiti, pray for them, and remember how blessed we are to be sleeping in our own beds at night, with our families safely tucked in, and a reminder to not take for granted food on our tables and clothes in our closets.
