Re: Prayer request: GAC's house has burned down
I know exactly how you feel regarding the guilt, etc. It's hard, but just think of all the times you've reached out to someone in need. I suspect you've done your fair share of giving. Now, it's your turn to receive a bit.

God sent this catastrophe to us. Not in anger, though, but to create an opportunity to build something better.
A friend of mine who lost everything in the storm, and had no insurance to recover, said it's somewhat liberating to no longer have possessions. These kinds of events make you think about "ownership" in general. What does it really mean?
Great news about the family videos. And you might be able to use those to help you make your lists.
