What do you think? How has Harvey changed your life? Or hasn't he changed it?
If you are like millions of Americans, the images of the people, the water, the suffering, and the rescues are stunning and shocking. It seems unfathomable that an area from Houston to Beaumont/Port Arthur could receive over 40" of rain in 5 days. That is what we average for a whole year! It is shocking.
So is this the "greatest flood" in US history? No one will really know. It is hyperbole. Perhaps it is true. But then again our memories may be failing us. Take a look below.
These floods are from 1936, 1921, 1999, 1997, 1951, and 1993 respectively. They were all major and significant. All caused billions of dollars worth of damage (in terms of 2017 dollars) and destroyed tens of thousands of homes. Which was the biggest? To be blunt: does it really matter? They were all catastrophic and caused much suffering, and loss of life.
Pastor Terry, his wife and family came to Suedberg in 2003. There have great times, good times, and well, not so good times. But through it all God has been good. This blog will share the goodness of God as seen in the midst of the great, the good, and the not so good of our world.
