Water is patient, Adelaide. Water just waits. Wears down the cliff tops, the mountains. The whole of the world. Water always wins. (The 10th Doctor as played by David Tennant from Doctor Who).
Creator of the universe you are a loving God who is there for your people in times of trouble and tragedy. May your children be comforted, calmed and secure in the coming storms. This storm is not of your hand but of a planet whose ecosystem needs balance and care. Be with those who will help the people who are in peril and need make it through.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayers.
Hurricane Irma is on its way and will impact Florida and the southeastern states. I have friends in Florida who are riding it out and hoping for the best. I’m in Tennessee and we will get some of that weather early next week. There are other storms brewing in the Atlantic too so keeping watch is a routine thing these days. To everyone in the storms path be careful, be alert and remember that life is always the most important concern in times like this.
Hurricane Harvey is promising to be a massive storm that’s brewing in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s a powerful category 2 or 3 storm that could do lots of damage. Texas looks like it will get hit the hardest. Let’s hope for the best for those in the path of the storm.
A great time to send a selfie is when a tornado sweeps your butt up into its funnel cloud. Remember to select the right filter and the pithy caption to tell your story. What would Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz do in that situation.
