When Tragedy Surrounds You

After Super Storm Sandy, survivors
looked at what they still had rather than what they lost
otherwise, how could they survive such devastation?
Accounts of all the tragedies,
professionals and volunteers rallied 
to pull together, to save and restore lives.

A sunset is spectacular after a fire
reminding everyone that there is more to life
than possessions, and hope is eternal
with every flower that blooms in spring.

My prayer last night:“Where are you God,
are you out there?” 
The answer came back,

“In every tear you shed I’m there beside you
don’t let evil in the world blind you to my presence.
Know your sacrifice is not in vain, some will hide away
but others will wake-up and get busy with my work
focus on what is important instead
of the trivial and mundane.”
