Peach State says: A Pause For Remembrance And Prayer
Posted by justbetweencousins
I wanted to take a moment and Pause!
“A Pause For Remembrance And Prayer!”
Once again a massive tornadic fury has devastated parts of the Midwest and prayers and thoughts are filling my Facebook wall. The hearts and minds of Americans are focused on various news outlets as pictures and stories fill the airwaves. Loss of life, loss of property, fear and shock pull this vast country together. Stories of heroism and sacrifice as passers-by turn into lifesavers.
As I watch these events unfold I am reminded of the tornadoes I have experienced. Some with uneventful interruption and some with devastation and loss of life. The fear and respect I now have for these twirling-vacuums continues to grow with each passing picture and story.
As you look at the following pictures PLEASE… join me in lifting a prayer or thought for those suffering due to loss of a loved one and/or in loss of property.
Thank you so much!
About justbetweencousinsWe are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
