I listen to country music, where from the Southland, we hear songs of those who love their God, family and homes, where today, they are no more. Scenes on television capture the unspeakable loss, and we are all saddened by their grief.
This is Bright Week, a week that looks and is so gloomy for so many in this, our Country. Scenes of terror-- tornado's a mile wide, ripping through our land, one city to the next, leaving catastrophic destruction, to a nation already hurting by unending floods and so much poverty.
Rescue is on the way, the Red Cross is prepared to reach out, and as well, your neighbors and friends, in these great states of America, while we are praying for you.
Through the impending darkness, the Brightness of the Resurrection of Christ remains and is our only "real hope" for a world which needs to know His love.
Today, we again are reminded that love brings couples together, as we wait for the marriage of a prince and to be princess. There is newness all around us, yet, the sky is overcast. Life is, a mix of joy and sorrow. My heart is heavy for all who suffer, everywhere, and like the myrrh bearing women, we look to share the "good news" of the risen Lord, who will lift you out of the dust.
As, I watched television today, a young man "eagerly" spoke a message over the anchor, as she concluded her story to us about the growing excitement. "I love you America." It brought a tear, to know that some have not forgotten that "we give our all" to so many, always without expecting anything in return.
So, to the heartland of America, and all who suffer, I say Godspeed...Jesus love you, and we do too. Help is on the way....
