Hope In The Whirlwinds

Many stories came out of the tornadoes that tore through the US last week, and although no husbands were killed in the one I want to point you to today, it touched my heart in a profound way. I'd recently heard a woman mention the struggle she had when her first husband died at a young age: although she'd had a good church and strong faith, she kept wrangling with the thought that his life had been "cut short." She felt his life was incomplete, unfinished, and tossed aside in his prime.  

Many widows battle the same thoughts. If you're one of them, or you know someone who does, then this account of a mother who's two little boys were killed in the tornadoes will be valuable to you. How can we make sense out of life's purpose and meaning when death cuts a path of destruction through the middle of our heart?

Read on at The Hodgepodge Darling blog... Many thanks to a widow friend, Pat, who's been through some tornadoes herself in Arkansas. I'm thankful she didn't suffer any damage this time and thought to send this to me.

Grab a Kleenex before you read... and please continue to pray for the tornado survivors--- for those who lost their houses and loved ones and must now rebuild their lives. You know better than most people what they really need.
