Dear Friends

Severe Storms, Other Disasters ...
and Caregiving

Prayer Requests

Clearing snow off car

Dear Friends,

A few nights after Monica's death seven years ago this month, I awoke from a half sleep to the sound of strong winds. That was okay. It wasn't all that unusual for the house to lose power in a storm like that but now there was no need for electricity to keep her oxygen machine working.

Yes, the small "travel" tanks were always full and there was a larger one good for 24 hours but ...

I still think of that when power is knocked out.

Caregiving and care-receiving are hard enough every day but the problems, challenges and fears can quickly escalate when there's a severe storm or other disaster.

It's good to keep that in mind when we hear of some area facing a situation like that and to pray for the caregivers and  care-receivers there.

You remain in my prayers.
