Because of God's immeasurable grace and goodness, somehow my Mr. AGP Man and I, along with everyone we love, escaped the latest round of storms that ravaged Oklahoma last Friday. Aside from our son's fence being knocked down and power outages, everyone is safe.
I can't begin to tell you how devastated I feel when just driving around Oklahoma City. Our beautiful Red Earth State is battered and bruised and now she is also flooded. People are hurting...some have lost everything...their homes and their lives.
Even though I'm not a native of Oklahoma I've grown to love her deeply over the past twenty-five plus years. My children live here...my parents are here...my heart is here...most of my adult memories were created here. The thought of everything we hold dear in this life being ripped up and blown away in the twinkling of an eye is almost more than I can personally comprehend. And so...I don't try to understand it because it is beyond me~
Right now we are all trying to heal. Trying to find strength to move beyond the rubble and trust God with our tomorrows. Easier to say than to do sometimes. Still...like our friends on the East Coast who have survived the worst of the worst, we will too. God has promised to never leave or forsake us and I am trusting in His Word.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for Oklahoma. We need them. We need you.
