Hope and a Future

Death, Life, Hope

I was taking a photo of the old, rusted tricycle, but when I uploaded it yesterday and saw that green leaf of the dandelion, it reminded me of the overwhelming destruction in Oklahoma, and yet the life and hope that still exist and move on and grow.

Praying for the people of Moore, Oklahoma.

What a beautiful metaphor Judy - I can't imagine what these poor people are going through - every time I see it I cry - it's too much - how does one pick up the pieces ( literally in this case )and yet I know they do -
one piece at a time...........

Chris's sister in law's grandparents were exactly 1 mile from where the tornado hit in Moore. They know how unbelievably fortunate they were! I'm praying for everyone too!

My heart breaks watching the news about Oklahoma. I have friends that live in OK. The tornado touched down five miles from their house. One of the subdivisions completely destroyed is one they almost moved to. I still can't watch the news without crying.
