People were running to the grocery store, making plans to work from home, and doing the things we do when we think we may be homebound for a few days. We wanted to be ready.
And it got me to thinking...
What about the next storms in our lives... the challenges and disappointments that just go along with living life. What do we do to prepare for them?
Do we work hard enough to establish a relationship with God so that He knows our names when we need to call out to him?
Do we try to maintain good eating and exercise habits so that we can fight whatever bug or illness may attack us?
Do we keep our relationships with family and friends strong in case we need to ask for help?
Do we save money?
Do we prepare our family for life without us?
These aren't all things we like to think about, but they're necessary. Because as the old folks say... "If you're not in a storm, you've just come out of one or you'll be heading into one real soon."
Will we be ready?
