Our prayers today are of continued thanksgiving for all the blessings have received: from God in a beautiful rainbow to start Thursday, along with the mass Scripture which spoke to us of how and why we are called to adversity, and the hope he graces us with; to the many blessings we are receiving from each of you in support by cards and emails, hands, prayers, food and a willingness to be there whenever we call.
We would also ask your continued prayers that the insurance and fire marshall/adjuster would finish their investigation fairly and quickly so that we can begin removing contents from the building and again for patience for us and for our customers.
Many of you have asked how we are doing and how we are doing this: The following is a message I received, before it my reply to her. In actuality this applies to all of us, every day, and for every reason, and speaks exactly as to both hows:
—Psalm 23:1–4 nkjv
—2 Corinthians 4:16–17"
And my reply:
Thank you! That is perfect and exactly why we have been able to stay calm. I told Uncle Stan yesterday almost this exact thing....and wondered how anyone without faith would ever make it through life in general.... not even just in a catastrophe.
