I am located in NJ, where Sandy made itself know in a fierce way. My family and neighbors are ok , but the neighborhood is a mess from downed trees. We were lucky, we were only without power for 3 days. But others have sad circumstances to deal with. For the rest of us, its long lines for gasoline and long waits for power to be restored across the area. And now a nor’easter is headed our way.
James 1:2-4 – Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
