Packing my bags…

I am preparing to head to New Orleans on Friday….

I have my Dutch schedule arranged and my house ready for week-long guests.

I have an amazing office staff who function with great ease if I am there or not and I am starting to think about packing.

I am traveling with a team from Shawnee Park CRC (which includes my Mom) and we are focusing on home repair from the effects of Hurricane Isaac in 2012.

isaacToday I began thinking about a hurricane in 2012….

I began to consider how quickly I call for support when I have a leak…

I began to envision the destruction of homes as the result of a hurricane and how many days have passed since the help has likely come and gone from this community.

I began to consider the impact of living in the midst of destruction and tragedy…

I began to marvel at the resilience of the human spirit…

I began to consider the faces of those we will work along side of and serve…

I began to wonder how God will use our team, our stories, our aches, our blessings, our time…

My bags are almost packed and my heart is curious…

Stay tuned…

  1. Wonderful Trish! (and mom) While reading a thought came to mind…
    Comfort in Comfort out.. One of the lessons I gleaned from Grief Share was how as one takes comfort in(receives) the healing process moves on as that comfort spills out. Be Blessed and take care of mom.!
    It will be an experience! We will be praying for you and mom. Tjg
