I don't get cell reception here in Glacier Park, Montana, but I did find internet access. And for the first time all week, I've been able to read news of the disaster along the Gulf Coast.
Isn't it easy to feel helpless? I know I've felt that way all day. I pull my eyes from the towering pines filling the picture window in front of me and stare again at the images on my screen, and it's hard to believe so many people are suffering on such a beautiful, green and blue Montana day.
My first blogger friend, Lori Seaborg (and the person who helped me get into blogging in the first place) happens to live along the coast. I trust her. I've been reading her posts for months now and I know her heart. If you're wanting to help in any way--big or small--I urge you to contact Lori. She's promising to physically hand whatever you send her to the people who need it most.
Visit Lori's site and read a few of her first-hand reports. Then see what stirs within you.
And in the meantime, say a prayer or two.
Until next week,
