Gustav, Hanna, Ike and more

The LORD does whatever pleases him,
    in the heavens and on the earth,
    in the seas and all their depths. Psalm 135:6

An AP headline today read "Gustave Spares Worst for New Orleans." This headline credits the thing created with the actions of the Creator. It may seem a small thing. It is not. God and God alone is the one who determined the path of Gustav. It appears from the forecasters that the eastern U.S. will be in for a round of hurricanes this next week. Don't miss this opportunity to point your children to the one whom the wind and waves obey. This week could bring a series of near-misses or it could bring massive destruction and loss of life. What is important is that your children recognize and praise the Lord of heaven and earth who makes these storms occur so that he will be honored for who he is. Help them to see this great truth amidst the headlines.
