First off and most importantly, we hope you and your family are doing okay as the recovery period begins. Please be sure to check in with your neighbors, especially the elderly and disabled, to make sure they are okay and see if they need anything. A simple knock on the door can save a life. We pray for the hardest hit areas up and down the East Coast, including our neighbors in Maryland and up through New England. The death toll is tragic and may be rising. And this storm is not finished yet – it is pushing into the Midwest and will cause more problems there. Please keep everyone affected by this storm in your prayers.
