Thank you, Lord, for blessings in all this mess. I'm so happy your brother's been located.
On sending goods
Our local paper carried an article saying private trucks are arriving filled with goods. There's no where to park them, no one to distribute the items, and in some cases, the drivers and helpers don't have funds to care for themselves. They asked everyone to let the organizations geared for this, such as Red Cross and Salvation Army handle goods. Some goods are just in the way, others go unused because they aren't what's needed or clothing does't fit those where it's given.
So rather than buying goods at garage sales to ship, have one, like Sharon's granddaughters, and send the proceeds. I took clothing, blankets, school supplies and some personal items to a moving van loading to go down just before I saw that article.
