“I Feel Humbled”

Watching the news about Hurricane Harvey yesterday, I saw a reporter question a woman who had left her home, now flooded. He asked for her reactions to what had happened and what was still happening. She turned her somber face up to him and said with deep emotion, “I feel humbled.” No “why me” or “how will I survive.” Just, “I feel humbled.” And she added, as best as I can remember her words, “Anyone who doesn’t feel humbled . . . there’s something wrong.”

I don’t know that woman’s name, but I want to thank her. She has made me, sitting in my comfortable and dry home, feel humbled. May God continue to bless her.
