Blessings….Chaos

I’ve been meaning to write since the new year started. It was one of my New Year’s resolutions to start to blog on a more regular basis. But I started a new job immediately after the New Year and chaos was brought to my family this past week….

On Tuesday evening, I began seeing friend’s facebook status’ about keeping those in Haiti in mind. I saw on the news that there was a massive earthquake….later that night I received a call from my mom telling me that her cousin’s daughter (my second cousin) was down in Haiti on a mission trip and no one had heard from her yet.
At that moment, so many thoughts went through my head. I had a sleepless night worrying about Missy wondering if she was ok or if she was stuck in the rubble. Wednesday day and night went by and all of us were clinging onto hope and prayers that she would be ok.
Thursday morning we received word that Missy was ok and later that night she was back safe in the US.
It’s events like these, although tragic, that really make you sit back and realize how blessed you are. The problems and stress in my life seem like nothing compared to what those in Haiti are experiencing.
Please continue to pray for all those in Haiti. Missy was one of 6 that were rescued from her school and some are still missing. Please pray for all those affected and those there helping to save the country
