The characters in Little Girl Blue have experienced emotional devastation as well as divine healing. The play confirms there are many types of devastation and healing that are way beyond our control, that come from a higher power.
Devastation from a Force of Nature is a wake-up call for all of us. Today is the day after the wrath of Hurricane Sandy ravaged much of the East Coast of the United States. Prayers, Healing and Blessings to everyone who was affected by this storm - in the United States as well as in the Caribbean.
Lives were lost: Dear God, please bless the deceased and help the families and loved ones who are in grief. Injuries have been inflicted and sustained: Dear God, please deliver a mighty and speedy healing. Property was destroyed: Dear God, please help the families and loved ones gain enough strength and fortitude to rebuild. Power lines are down: God please bless the families who are waiting for their utilities to be restored. Businesses – small and large – have suffered: Dear God, please help revitalize and restore the losses, which are indeed significant.
And please, God, Bless all of the Elected & Government Officials, Military, First Responders, and plethora of Line Workers on the ground who are working around the clock to help restore some semblance of normalcy. Thank you!!!! Thanks to each and every one of you brave soldiers!
As for me, I feel more blessed, and more grateful than ever. I live in Philadelphia, so we were affected. However we have been spared and not affected nearly as severely as other places, such as Atlantic City and the Jersey Shore, New York City and a plethora of other locations along the coastline and surrounding areas. In my own case, I thank God for my sturdy home and its high location, which kept me out of harm’s way. Even though the strong winds blew down a tree on my front yard, I am ever so grateful that it fell away from the house, literally into the branches of another tree, which is currently holding it up. Now that is God’s Grace!
Asante Sana. Peace & Blessings Always
