Remembering This Day… Prayers and Praise…

Remembering this day, brings me to tears… It brings prayers and praise… let me explain… Since the 7th grade, I have had such sorrow in my heart on this day for all of those involved in the tragedy that struck our nation.  I remember sitting in class and my teacher flipped on the TV to see the horrifying news.

I glanced out the window that is above that sink and saw it. A RAINBOW! God’s beautiful promise. Bursting with color over my Pa’s cows that I always helped feed and look after with him…(if the tractor or four-wheeler was moving..hey you better bet this gal was going with her Pa)  I can not describe the JOY and happiness that washed over me when I saw that rainbow in the field with all them cows. I started shouting, “LOOK! […]
