Praying for Oklahoma

Hi, friends! Checking in today. I have been a sick chick, but I'm on the mend - thankfully! I was going to blog about what we've been up to lately, but it just doesn't feel right given recent events. My heart is so heavy for all of the folks in Oklahoma - especially the families who lost their babies in such a terrible tragedy. Honestly, I try not to let myself think about it for too long. It hurts too much.

Unfortunately, there are moms and dads today who don't have the luxury of just trying not to think about it. So we are praying for their broken hearts. We are praying for those still waiting for news. We pray for the safety of those working in search and rescue - for those who have lost their homes in neighborhoods that were completely flattened. We pray for communities who have to pick up the broken peices and start over again.

Times like these serve a reminder to us all that we are not promised tomorrow. Don't put off for tomorrow what you need to take care of today - especially your spiritual health and making sure you've told everyone you care about that you love them. You just can't say it enough.

I am still not feeling great today, but put into prospective, I have very little to complain about. For all of the sorrow and tragedy, there is also a thankfulnesses for all of the people who were spared in yesterday's storms. I am so thankful that everyone I know who was in the area yesterday is safe and sound today.

And now to follow my own advice...I don't tell most of you enough how much I appreciate and care for you. I think people come into our lives for a reason. I love the people who are in my life, and if I were never to live another day, I would want you all to know that.

With prayerful and hopeful hearts, we wish you all a good day today, and we'll be back tomorrow.

"Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Gave me chills. I've taken that "we are not promised tomorrow" to heart so much lately and I feel better for it.
