and the above thought I caught on a
page of Facebook
had to grin,
we need to put that one in the
front part of the brain
The storms have now left destruction
from the Gulf Coast
The Great Lakes
today many are without their homes,
their loved ones,
as they attempt to make order of it all.
Photographs of the remnants of
things that are upside down
or completely gone,
and in one home of such mass destruction
a table sits as if nothing had happened
with two American Flags
standing perfectly straight.
Disaster and trauma
“states of emergency”
have been sounded.
We have to have
during times like this,
we must maintain
for those lives so deeply affected,
those lives lost
those who are now wandering through
They will survive this,
they will find that ability
and hands that will be extended
to hold, to help, to care.
“Faith can move mountains, but don’t be surprised if God hands you a shovel.”
~Author Unknown ~
My prayers to all in those states
and those who love them.
Brave and strong men and women
will just show up
and will jump in to do whatever and wherever
because they can.
People will show the best of humanity, as they gather in fellowship with UNITY to render compassion and care and desire to make a difference for those who are now wondering how this could possibly happen to them.
Lives forever changed
by a ravaging storm front that has
of lives put together through years of work, play and prayer.
Strength and faith will be tested in ways
never before imagined.
many will find a great ability
to stand UP
to believe that it will work out
in the long haul.
People are truly amazing
able to accomplish great things
during times of such heartache
As strangers will meet for the first time,
they will quickly develop bonds
that one would think had been tied strong
together for years.
They will cry together, sweat together,
find ways to restore and build up
as those who are connected
as human beings who care only can.
We will witness and some will be there
hand in hand
heart in heart
doing the extroidinary jobs
of digging through devastation
We will see once again,
the proof will be in the puddin;
that when we stand together
we are a great force to reckon with
in the times of tragedy
in the times of greatness
during times of great stress and sadness.
are people who stand strong in the face of harm, of threat, of destruction and devastation.
I cannot help but wonder
we forget or choose to not stand in ways such as this all the time.
In our thoughts, our actions, our
of our country.
My gratitude to all the
who are now answering the call
and those who are volunteering
in the states, communities
lives that have been affected
the Gulf to the Great Lakes.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you
today and in the coming days
Please hold on to each other
“Faith is a passionate intuition.”
~William Wordsworth ~
Blessings to all who gather here,
“keep the faith”
“keepin it real”
