The 05/21/13 Joy Jar

21 May

 

There is heartache and heartbreak in the heartland of America. The New York Times reports in the article,Vast Oklahoma Tornado Kills at Least 91:

MOORE, Okla. — A giant tornado, a mile wide or more, killed at least 91 people, 20 of them children, as it tore across parts of Oklahoma City and its suburbs Monday afternoon, flattening homes, flinging cars through the air and crushing at least two schools. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/21/us/tornado-oklahoma.html

 

Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the faith to weather any storm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t think that you can let the storms of life overwhelm you. When you do that, you are no better than the craziness that caused you to be under attack.

Another secret of the universe: Sometimes pain was like a storm that came out of nowhere. The clearest summer could end in a downpour. Could end in lightning and thunder.”
