He huffed and he puffed but the house of bricks stood firm.

In the aftermath of the St Catharines windstorm, I echo the words of a friend, “Thank you God.”

The damage in our city is clearly visible as you drive through the streets. Many people are still without power four days later.

The roof blew off my daughter’s school; four trees blew down within sight of our home and electrical wires snapped like a weak thread sending sparks everywhere.

Yet, like my friend, I thank God.

The large Maple Tree shading her property crushed their garage destroying her workspace. When I spoke with her and her husband Sunday morning, their attitude impressed me. I heard no questions, no self-pity and no anger.

Instead, they expressed a gentle acceptance of God’s will and trust in His future provision.

When they compared their loss to the complete and total destruction of entire USA communities and the lost lives suffered by our American neighbors they felt thankful.

Yes.

Thank you God.
