And the Thunder Rolls…

Today is my husband’s birthday. It’s generally been the hardest day of the year for me since he’s been gone. I miss him every day, but his birthday, it just hits a little harder it seems. This makes the third one since he’s been gone. It doesn’t get easier but God’s grace is sufficient for each day. A wise lady told me that shortly after Pat went to Heaven. I was so buried in grief, I didn’t understand it, but I do now. I hang onto it each and every day.

Today was marked even more for me by the terrible storms, flooding and tornados in our area. We’ve got about 15″ rain since the storms started. Our yard flooded some but nothing like others. In Harrison, I’ve seen pictures of water of the top of cars in their drives. In Branson, they’ve evacuated those living by Lake Taneycomo. The Table Rock dam in Branson is closed due to a mudslide.  Several other towns have had to evacuate as well. Cars and people have been swept away, then tonight, there was a large tornado outbreak over the state. Please keep all of these people in your prayers.

Someone sent me a video today of what’s going on in the Middle East. I keep up with the news because it affects us more than you think. I saw an actual video where Syria leaders gunned down mourners in a funeral procession. One of the mourners had a video cam and taped the whole thing. It was so horrible… a senseless waste of life. Syria is in a hopeless uproar right now. Besides, praying for those that live there… why does it matter to me? Syria is in Bible prophecy. Damascus, Syria is the oldest town in history.

In the Bible, Isaiah 17 states that
“Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city; And it will be a ruinous heap.

It states that there will be trouble in the evening and then will be no more in the morning. This is part of end times prophecy. So much of it is becoming fulfilled, if you see trouble in Damascus, it bears watching closely!

Remember to pray for those in the storms here and those in their own storms around the world.

And Happy Birthday, Pat. I love you.
