Kentucky is our sort of second home. Two of our sons were born there. I went to seminary in Louisville. I began my ministry proper in Kentucky and southern Indiana. Not a month goes by that we don't miss our time living down there. Especially our time when we lived in Louisville.
So it was devastating to see that carnage left by those storms over the weekend. Any disasters the bring such harm and suffering and death are a reminder of the fragility of life. Those that happen at this time of year make it all the worst.
Prayers for the victims lost and their families. May the peace of God, which surpasses all human understanding, cover their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
