I try to organize according to my most basic priorities:
Yesterday my quotes focused mainly on relationships, especially relationships with God.
With that my quote for Day Two is
“When the storms of life come, if they come to me personally, to my family or to the world, I want to be strong enough to stand and be a strength to somebody else, be shelter for somebody else.” Anne Graham Lotz
Our family is familiar with storms. We have always weathered them and collected ourselves quickly afterwards. Overcoming seems to be ingrained in us. When my sister first suggested moving to North Texas my first reservations about living in Tornado Alley amused my brother.
We grew up in Southern California during some historical earthquakes. Because we’ve experienced them earthquakes don’t overly concern us. However, since I first saw The Wizard of Oz, and heard the stories from family in the Midwest, the mere thought of tornadoes terrifies me.
In less than two years in North Texas we’ve already witnessed the disastrous effects of tornadoes and severe straight-line winds, this past December 26th being most horrific.
However, we also saw first-hand the people of our neighboring communities banding together in solidarity with the victims of nature’s wrath. Seeing the out pour of care and hands-on assistance to survivors has been tremendous. For all the heartbreak, loss and suffering, I am reassured having seen people standing strong and working with their fellow man.
