A Thought: “Oh, Lord, WHAT are we to think?”
Floods, mudslides, tornadoes, and now earthquakes!
Natural disasters seem harder to accept because they come from elements of nature colliding together. It’s easy to blame God. Our bent on eroding the atmosphere through modernization has not helped global warming, triggering much of what we see or experience, yet few believe it’s an issue.
What I see in the midst of the grief and devastation, is humanity at its best, giving money and resources to aid victims; working through exhaustion to bring children and adults alike through the rubble of 17 hours from Italy’s earthquake.
What I also see is a reminder we should not take our lives or one another for granted. Life is given in a second when one is born, and it is gone any day in the unforeseen last breath.
Take care, my friends. Let us do our best to love one another, and let us make each day our best, as if it is our last.
God, in your mercy…
Luke 18:38 “The man called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me, a sinner!”
