Keeping on "Keeping On" - Part III

By Jennifer Johnson

So many things look different since my first visit to Pearlington, when trees still blocked the streets and everything was brown. Brown with mud, brown due to loss of vegetation. Now you can see new roofs, new construction, new sheet rock and new paint. The brown is slowly being replaced by green. New growth, a little grass. Many are moving back into their homes. The community is coming together like never before to rebuild. And yet, some things remain the same. There are still some houses that haven’t been touched. Still piles of debris on the side of the road.

There is still so much to do.

So keep coming to Pearlington. Keep encouraging others to participate. But in the business of your preparations, don’t forget to take the time to be still and know that He is God. Don’t forget to take the time to ask Him what is His will for your involvement.

And if you listen very carefully, you will hear Him whisper:

"Keep on keeping on."
