Greetings in Jesus name to all of the Grace family. It took a while (waiting) but Irma finally left. It took a while (waiting) but I think I can say to the best of my knowledge that every one in the Family of Grace made it safely through the storm. God is good and we are blessed. Now those of you who stayed are waiting for supplies, water, power, and family and friends to return. Those of us who evacuated are waiting to be given the ok to return. It would seem to me, I and maybe you have learned a few things through this experience.
1. We are not in charge (That was pretty clear to me)
2. In the waiting many prayers were prayed and answered, maybe not as quickly as we wanted but.. see 1 above.
3. Many people prayed for you. They wanted to see your smiling face again. I know this because you are reading this which means you are still with us. Be still for a minute and consider the One Who saved us from the storm performed an even bigger rescue to save us eternally. That of course took place at Calvary. Hope you understand that Jesus is crazy in love with you.
4. Absences does indeed make the heart grow fonder. I am looking forward to the day that we the Family of Grace are reunited. Meanwhile, we wait. While we wait let's pray, count our blessings, and then pass those blessings on.
Love in Jesus, Pastor
