Oh, folks, the news out of my corner of the continent is not good this morning. As you have likely heard on the national news if you live in the states, an Amish family was tossed from their buggy during flash flooding last night, and four of their children were swept away by the fast running water. The children range from ages eight months to eleven. Searchers found the bodies of three of the children overnight, and they're still looking for the fourth. They're hoping that maybe she's clinging onto to something.
This happened in the community where I took the pictures of the Wooldridge Monuments I posted recently. It is a close knit community, and some 200 folks have been involved in the search. I know what it's like to lose a loved one to flood waters. I can't imagine what it's like to lose three, maybe four of your children that way. If you are the prayin' kind, please do. These folks are going to need it now and in the months to come. Pray for the searchers, too. I know Sheriff Redmon who was interviewed in the clip I linked to, and I know his heart is just breaking right now, along with the hearts of those searchers.
