Yesterday the weather was weird in this area. My son lives a little over a hour away in what is actually Chesapeake area. He and I were on the phone talking when the wind and rain picked up where he was. He needed to fix a tire that was going flat but decided to wait. He said he could hear the rain and wind pick up, it was weird. A few miles away a tornado decided to land in Suffolk instead of moving in my son's direction. It tore up an area called "Driver" and displaced the entire neighborhood bc of potential foundation and structural damage. Many were injured but no one was killed. I must say I am sorry so many are facing major life-changing decisions today but I am grateful my son was spared of this ordeal.
To look at the mangled vehicles and totally missing homes from their foundation is a surreal scene. People always amaze one another bc you see true heroes emerge to help their brothers and sisters; people that in everyday life they might see, never speak to and never get to know.
Two different people sent me comments about the wonderful song "Amazing Grace." What neither of them know is that its a song my FIL sung all the time with his own words. I've mentioned that on my blog before. There are days I feel he must be in Heaven talking to God about his daughter. In the Bible it says there are others "cheering us on." Boy do I feel the need to be cheered on right now. Here is a site my friend sent me to on one of the interesting stories of Amazing Grace. Its called "The Black Notes." Hope it sparks your interest to seek the Lord of all Creation today. It reminds me of another song "His Eye Is On The Sparrow." I don't know if that is the title but that is what I remember. Enjoy your life today. God has a purpose for you. And I'll close with this version of "Amazing Grace" in Cherokee.
I closed this post out and then it hit me. I bought the movie "Amazing Grace" two days ago bc I had really wanted to watch it. I quickly forgot about buying it bc I don't buy or rent movies. I feel a stirring in my soul this morning to watch it. It feels like the beginning of a tornado.
