prayers

as i watch the devastation in Oklahoma today---it seems to me that the mystery of the human spirit is probably one of the biggest mysteries in life

we lose loved ones and houses, dreams and health--but as soon as that breath we take tells us we can go on, we want to go on--then life does go on---

and the lessons we think we shall never forget, fade and the pain we drown in--becomes a dull lonely ache--but we manage to buy new paint, go to dinner, pay our bills and entertain the thought that we can once again "plan" our life----

what else are we to do--what choices are there---they are too bleak and deeply dark to consider

so as we all pray and guiltily thank God it wasn't us---we know--that something will be us---but who could sustain their being, with this threat in our fore-thoughts----

so the human spirit --the God given grace and mercy, carries us on

  1. Oh man, the news broke my heart. If I could, I'd be out there with helping hands organizations to assist the people in clean up, searches and recovery. It's shocking how quickly tragedy can strike, but I am always inspired by the way these things open hearts and unite us as a human family. People are awesome.
