WHEW! I am SO tired! Physically and emotionally. Our city is flooding. And going to continue to be under water through at least half the summer! Its devastating. There is going to be some MAJOR loss of buildings and homes in this community. Today between two doctors appointments for out littlest one and then heading to help some friends in the flooding areas, its been a long and emotional day! There’s part of you that feels guilty that you’re not in the flood zone, but part of you so thankful too. We feel that if we get to escape this one, though, we need to be down there helping as much as we can. We’ve been through two “natural disasters” to our own home (a flood and a fire) so we have such empathy for those going through this right now. We know the exhaustion that overcomes you as you are working to protect your home and the emotional drainage from it. We know the feeling of great loss over it all. We are so aware of this trying time in the world right now. And seeing firsthand a disaster like this in our own “neighborhood” really brings it all home.
So what does all of this have to do with our pointy pine tree? I’m not sure. I guess as part of this blog, you get to do a little life with me! And thats what’s on my mind right now. Praying for our city and those affected by other disasters! If you wouldn’t mind saying a prayer for our youngest son. He’s been sick all winter/spring (literally) and we are finally getting the help we need for him to hopefully make him well (Praise the Lord), but we are weary of his poor little body being so run down for so long. He really needs a season of good health to recoup! You can pray for that! Thank you guys!
And now to remind you to head over to I’m Feeling Crafty to see some things that inspire me artistically. Several fun links for you!!
Yay for Friday and a long weekend!
