Oklahoma


My heart breaks today for the people of Moore, Oklahoma whose lives have been forever changed.  No doubt they will carry with them throughout this earthly life the scar of this day.

I have been to Oklahoma once.  That was in the spring of 2005, my sophomore year of college, and I fell in love with the people.   We nearly lost our lives in Tulsa which is way too light of a story to share with you under these circumstance, but one day I'll do just that. We stayed with my roommate's family in Enid and visited the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial.

Faith, Family and Love would sum up my view of Oklahoma folk.  They are a good people who no doubt have a lot of healing in front of them.  Will you please join me in praying from those who lost homes, earthly possessions, loved ones, children or their mere innocence yesterday?

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." - Matthew 5:4
