Cherries and Tears

 We bought our first round of fresh cherries this weekend...


...so sweet and juicy.

Our prayers and hearts go out to all the flood victims in Texas and Oklahoma.
Such  losses....we've cried many tears for all the victims found and those not recovered at this time. For the loss of loved ones....homes...possessions.....
I pray for comfort and understanding for all those involved in this terrible tragedy.


We are thankful for the sun....
much more thankful for the SON
 

Without HIM, we couldn't handle the kind of tragedy
of the floods we've had here in Texas, Oklahoma 
and all the other states and countries.
Please join us in prayer for all.

  4. It is so sad. How fast things can be swept away. Yes the sun and the SON will make things bright again . Not to those that have lost so much, it will take time for sure.

  6. Life is fragile, can be fleeting, and nature rules us at all times. My thoughts too, to everyone in the path of all that water.

  7. Oh yes, these horrors have been mind boggling. Almost beyond comprehension.

    We must never take for granted, our safety, or the safety of our loved ones.

    Gentle hugs,

  8. Makes me grateful for where I live weather wise. No earthquakes like California, no hurricanes like Florida, no extreme cold like the north, and not nearly as many tornadoes/floods as Texas and Oklahoma. But never truly know what mother nature can do at any time.


    also I like cherries, but man are they are expensive. I usually cheap out and get grapes instead. Grapes are like off-brand cherries.

  11. So very sad. What a beautifully written post to remember our friends around the country who are having great challenges.

  12. Yes, praying for Texas! You said it so well...it is heartbreaking. I have one Texas buddy who is battling a sinkhole and another trying to keep her home from flooding. Oh it has to be so mind numbing and wearying.

  16. We really have been thinking of all of you wonderful souls and praying a lot. We know you do it for us Northerners when tornadoes and snowstorms come. Great kinship through blogging and then the news.

  17. Still so many people affected even though the rains have stopped. We are still under flash flood warnings because the waters are just cresting...well that was yesterday...not sure about today.

  18. It is SO SAD to see how the floods and storms have damaged homes, land and taken lives:( PRAYERS continue!

  19. Yes BJ, indeed we do. My son in Austin has an account in Wimberly and was amazed at how devastated their town is with flood waters. One of his friends lost his home and had all of his possessions in his car. How very, very sad. Lovely post as always!

  20. Amen! You've said it all so well, bj, and our prayers will continue. Hugs to you!

  21. BJ, every night on the news there is word of finding yet another victim, and it is revisiting this tragic event. My mind is on the husband/father who survived his family being lost to the flood. Not sure how anyone could ever cope with this. It is definitely nice to see some sunshine in Texas!

  22. I watch the news every night to see what the weather is out there in Texas and Oklahoma. It is always bad news about the floods and I sit here and cry for the poor people who have lost loved ones and their homes. I have a grandson and his family who live in Arlington but so far they are okay. Glad you and your family are okay. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  23. The floods have been a mess. I am thankful that the drought is over, though. In the midst of every storm there is something to be thankful for. We have water. Such a simple thing. Yet, vital to life.

  24. BJ,
    Aren't Cherries especially sweet and juicy this year? Loving them, on my post tonight there will be a photo of a bowl of Cherries too. Oh BJ so terribly sad, keeping them in my prayers, I'm following on CNN with a sad heart.
    xoxo,

    The cherries look yummy. The RG often requests Cherry Pie for his birthday.

  26. Doesn't it just break your heart to see some of those photos? People losing everything they had - some including their lives. Praying for sun and comfort for all of those affected.

  32. Sweet post bj. Amazing ... with just a little sun, how quickly we need to water the outdoor plants. We are so thankful for the wonderful rain, but sad that people and property have been harmed. The prayer list just gets longer and longer.
    Hugs,

  34. Ditto.. It is a shame that up here in the Midwest we are getting very little news of this. Sad!

  35. Lucky you. I stopped to buy some this weekend too but when the man told me they £4 for a little pot of them (which is about $7) I decided that I didn't need them that badly

  36. I haven't heard about the floods, but now that I know I will say a prayer for all the victims.

    The best part of cherries is to see who can spit out the pit the farthest! lol

  37. Hi Bj,
    We get so little info on all the floods and the impact this has had here in Chicago. I am sending prayers for all of the victims.
    So sad.

  39. BJ , I think the floods were a horrible thing...so scary and unexpected in places. I pray the people who lost everything get the help they need. I was glad to see the rain move out of Texas. Praying this does not happen again. Bless you, xoxo,Susie
