Tonight Haiti braces for a terrible storm. It is hard to wrap my mind around the reality of what that means for hundreds of thousands of people in makeshift shelters. Mothers and fathers, children and the elderly, facing nature's onslaught with little to nothing for protection. On the RHFH Rescue Center blog, photos of their preparations to withstand the storm serve as a stark reminder of this oncoming threat.

Meanwhile, thousands of miles away I have experienced the luxury of holding and rocking my Haitian sons, of praying with them and placing them safely in their cribs with all likelihood of another quiet and peaceful night in our comfortable, dry home.

My heart is heavy with the weight of privilege and pain tonight.

Oh Lord, have mercy.
