This week seemed like such a difficult week for so many. I thought about all the people who's lives are still touched by the memories of September 11th. I thought about the train crash in California, and the terrible storm in Texas, which continues to travel leaving a path of destruction.

So many lives hurt by such unexpected devastation. I woke up this morning and my heart hurt for them. I pray that they have hope in the middle of such adversity.


"O Lord, because You are my help,
I sing in the shadow of Your wings.
My soul clings to You.
Your right hand upholds me."
Psalm 63:7--8

The song for this post is Raging Sea
