12/02/2004 - Reporting from our base in Florida:
We came south in early November to salvage through our mobile home, destroyed by hurricane "Jean". A gigantic tree fell on the roof and destroyed it - "total loss". A crane was brought in to remove the tree, then another company was hired to remove the home and clear the lot.
Being the loving Father He is, The Lord provided us an even nicer home than we had before. The first place we looked at was a beautiful double wide mobile home in a park just across the street from where we were living. We knew we were at "home" when we walked in the door! Being the woman of the house, I am especially grateful for a lovely dining room with built in wall-to-wall china cupboard. The second bedroom has been turned into an office/music room for us to use as a "work room"; since Lorne rehearses at the keyboard many hours each day - all I can say is "thank God for earphones!" We are most thankful to the Lord for His provision.
Storms and tragedies of life are a mystery to all of us. In our case, God used it for good in our lives. One of the things listed in Psalms 148:8 that praises the Lord is .... stormy wind fulfilling his word. And we are praising Him too!
