Our energies waned as the heat of the summer took its toll. We watched helplessly as the virbrant colors of Spring turned to brown. This is not how it is supposed to be. But it is what we have been dealt. A rain dance or two was done and prayers were offered up daily. We needed relief from one of the worst heat waves and droughts on record.
We watched in horror as Isaac ravage the South, knowing it was going to bring some welcome relief, to the Midwest, from relentless heat and devastating drought. It is strange how that works sometimes.
On this Labor Day I am thinking about all of the good people in Louisiana, who are still without power, as they once again work to pick up the pieces of rebuilding their lives from yet another storm with a name. I can only imagine that they are wondering which name is going to hit them next...
|End of Summer 2012|
Even when things look impossible - hopeless - we don't give up.
We look to the future and dream of what can be if we work hard and believe.
