I don't like that phrase.
|Cars, homes, properties - neighborhoods - all gone.|
I'd like to share a few stories with you.
My husband, Joe, owns a business - a Renewal by Anderson window company. He services all of Long Island, New York City, and Brooklyn. People in some of these areas are still without power. Joe went out and purchased many generators (he had to send two employees to northern CT to purchase them, as there was none in NY or Long Island to be had). By doing so, he was able to have the installers install windows in the homes with no electric. He kept all his installation crews working by doing so. Even when he was advised to close the doors for a week or two. Not one of his employees had to sit home and not earn their income. Joe also supplied gasoline (again purchased in northern CT) to all employees so they could come and go to work, thus earning their paychecks. Plus he ordered in an array of hot foods everyday at lunchtime and had all the employees with no electric take the food home with them at the end of the day. His way of making a dent.
One of Joe's installers went to the home of an elderly couple who had no electric and thus no heat. After the installer completed the job, he hooked the generator up to their home so they could have electric and heat. On his own time into the wee hours of the morning, he would stand for hours on the gas lines to purchase some gasoline for this couple's generator, drive it all the way back to them, put the gas in the generator, and checked on the couple to see if they needed anything. He did this over and over until their electric was turned back on. Another dent made.
|That is sand this car is buried in. Sand from |
the ocean many blocks away.
|Water produces mold; therefore EVERYTHING must|
be thrown out.
Dent upon dent, we continue on. I guess that's how you spell relief.
Thank you to all of you who have prayed. Please continue to do so, as it's cold here now in New York. The heat is on in my home 24/7. But, there are still so many who still cannot warm themselves or shower; those who don't even have a couch any longer to sit on.
We bless God for the opportunities to make dents. We bless God for allowing us the opportunity to be His Hands and Feet. We bless God that He has called us to be dent-makers wherever and whenever we can.
Because of Him and Unto Him,
