Most times when we think of Mother Nature we usually embellish all the good things we see and enjoy. The beautiful summers, the birds and animals, the sights that can only come from looking out over the expanse of new life as nature takes over the remnants of what winter has left us, fashioning a new beginning.
Only occasionally do we have another side of nature to look at. Pretty rarely do we think of it as seemingly, cold, cruel and downright heartless.
Yesterday/overnight was one of those such times.
According to the reports out of the news sources where we live, approximately 44 people have supposed to have lost their lives. All this arising out of a horrendous pattern of storms and Tornado’s that cut a path across some of the United States.
When you see some of the pictures like I did, nature really gives you a jolt and something else to think about, a new measure of respect for the awesome powers that nature possesses.
All too many times do we hear and read of the disasters from other countries around the world. To think of such things happening here at ‘our home’ would not even be in our minds until it happens as it did yesterday/night.
Our hearts and prayers go out to those who have suffered as a result of this disaster. Our condolences to the relatives, the loved ones, friends and fellow workers, may you find peace as you travel the journey of your grief.
