The Neighbors We Should Be


It was a quiet Thursday in September,

When hurricane Isabel came rushing by.

Her wind was strong and gusty, as trees began to fly.

So many were without power and food began to spoil.

We asked ourselves how we managed without even a kerosene lamp of oil.

Some even lost everything that was so dear.

But God was in control, and there was no need to fear.

Many lives have been changed, and there is a reason to pause, to stop and think how important we are to each other one and all.

We had to come together and help out where we could.

Sometimes it takes a period of crisis for man to realize the importance of brotherhood.

God destroyed material things and helped us to see,

A pot of coffee, an extension cord, and the removal of a tree, made us the neighbors we should be.
