Hurricane Rita - Thankfulness

At this point the worst of Hurricane Rita has passed. I am grateful that it entered land in less populated areas. Even the damage in Port Arthur and Beaumont seems to minimal considering the size and strength of the storm. At the present time, there are no reported deaths.

I believe that many people prayed to God to minimize loss of life and property damage before Rita hit land. And I believe that God answered those prayers.

My scripture today:

"May God be gracious to us and bless and make his face shine upon us, that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among nations."

God was gracious, we had ample warning, people evacuated, and the storm hit in a way that there was minimal loss of life and minimal property damage. May God be praised for this welcome outcome.
