Please Read!

If you have watched television any at all over the past week, you know about the devastating tornadoes that struck our beloved Bluegrass state.

So many people lost loved ones, homes, jobs, and their sense of security and stability.  It is tragic and sad and my heart breaks for them.  I can't begin to imagine what they are going through.

As followers of Christ, we are commanded to love each other and to help in times of need.  Stephanie at A Blue-Eyed Boy Met a Brown-Eyed Girl is heading a relief effort to help a specific family who lost everything in the storm.  Please visit her blog and check it out!  She has also listed several other ways to donate to the relief efforts.

We don't always understand why things happen the way that they do.  We sometimes have to look hard to see God in the midst of a tragedy.  But He is there.  If you can't donate, please pray.  Those who are hurting need your prayers.

God bless you all, friends.

It is certainly a tragedy. How great that she's heading a relief effort. I'll definitely be praying for all the families effected from these tornadoes. I can't imagine facing that.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Praying and believing with you that God can bring some good ... because He is all love.

Delighted to stumble over here today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to dip my toes in goodness.
