I went to a University of Tulsa football game Saturday. It was a beautiful day, and they were victorious. As we sat and watched the game, we watched and listened as they sounded the hurricane siren and raised the hurricane flag. TU is the Golden Hurricane. Their tradition is to wave the flag.
But friends and family near and dear to me are hearing the siren and raising and waving a flag of their own. In a different spirit. Not of a sports theme, but of true natural disaster.
This is not in honor of the Golden Hurricane. It is in honor of Irma.
To all our loved ones in Florida and the surrounding states, you are in our thoughts and our prayers. It saddens me that my thoughts and prayers just went out to Houston and this week to Florida.
May each of us do what we can do to reach out and help our fellow American brothers and sisters in need as hurricane season takes its toll a Rosa our nation. The very least we can do is send our prayers. Prayers are powerful. More powerful than the winds of a hurricane. They can reach much higher than hurricane flags can fly. They can reach our Father in heaven.
Prayers to you, all those in true hurricane country! Be prepared. Be safe. And know we love you and are praying for you!
Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling my word, Psalm 148:8
Love and laughter,
