This has been a very difficult time for so many people across Florida since Ian slammed into the coast and then cut a path across our beautiful state. Lives have been lost, homes destroyed and businesses ruined. The power grid, roads, and communications networks sustained major damage. The loss of life is heartbreaking and it would have been hard to imagine the level of devastation on the barrier islands and coast of southwest Florida.
Fortunately, we have seen our political leadership at all levels, government agencies, utility companies, charities, churches, businesses, and most of all, our individual fellow citizens come together to save lives, to provide food, water, and shelter, to find and bury those who died, and start to rebuild and restore. We all owe our support and a deep debt to the thousands of people whose lives have been shattered and those working around the clock to help them. Please think about how you can help.
When this new song by Larry Fleet and Zach Williams came up in my YouTube feed yesterday, I thought it was the perfect choice for this Friday’s song. It is a reminder that with faith, hope, and love, we can overcome anything. I hope you enjoy “This Too Shall Pass.”
