BIRDS SING AFTER A STORM




BIRDS  SING  AFTER  A  STORM,



WHY  SHOULDN'T  PEOPLE  FEEL  AS



FREE  TO  DELIGHT  IN  WHATEVER 



SUNLIGHT  REMAINS  TO  THEM?



~ROSE  KENNEDY  (1890-1995)




EACH  ONE  OF  YOU  HAVE  TOUCHED  MY  HEART  IN



A  SPECIAL  WAY.  YOU  ARE  SUCH  AN  INSPIRATION.




I  HAVE  CRIED  WITH  YOU  AND  LAUGHED  WITH  YOU.



THEY  SAID  IN  HAITI,  YOU  CAN  HEAR  PEOPLE  SINGING



AND  GIVING  PRAISES  TO  THE  LORD  FOR  THEIR  LIFE.



THESE  ARE  THE  POOREST  OF  POOR  LIVING  ON  LESS  THAN 



$300.00  A  YEAR  AND  MAKE  MUD  CAKES  FOR  THEIR  CHILDREN



TO  EAT  SO  THEIR  STOMACHS  WILL  FEEL  FULL.



IT  MAKES  ME  WEEP  FOR  THE  DEATH  AND  DESTRUCTION



IN  HAITI.........AND  THEY  SING  PRAISES  TO  THE  LORD.



DEAR  HEAVENLY  FATHER  BLESS THEM  WITH  MIRACLES




AND  THE  HEALTH  CARE  THEY  NEED.



HEALING  AND  RESTORATION



PEACE  AND  SECURITY



FOOD  AND  WATER



ALSO  MAY  WE  REMEMBER  THESE  PEOPLE  IN  PRAYER:



ELIZABETH  AND  ROY,  JACKIE,  SHARON,  ASHLEY,  CLYTIE,


CINDY,  WILL,  CASS,  SALLY,  TERESA,  JOHNNY,  HP,  KRISTIE,


CASEY J,  DONNA,  PATRICIA,  DORIS  AND  RICHARD,  TAWNA


AND  MIKE,  JEFF  AND  ROBBI,  RICHARD,  AND  ALL  UNNAMED


PRAYER  REQUESTS.





THE  LORD  WILL  GIVE  STRENGTH  UNTO  HIS


PEOPLE;


THE  LORD  WILL  BLESS


HIS  PEOPLE  WITH


PEACE


~PSALM  29:11




A  GRACIE  ANN  PECK  AND  A  HUG  AROUND  THE  NECK.


WE  ARE  SO  HAPPY  YOU  STOPPED  BY  TO  SEE  US


IT  MAKES  US  BOTH  VERY  HAPPY


HAVE  A  WONDERFUL  DAY

I know, the Haiti situation tugs at my heart too. We know something good will come from this. I have heard some reporters state that maybe things will turn around for the country if other nations stick with them. They have had a lot of outside help but have never been able to provide for themselves for some reason. My daughter's family had a live-in from Haiti and he said anyone that appeared to have wealth got robbed and so no one wanted to have material things. Most of the food going in, goes to the resorts there. The government is no help for the people. They have a piddly PD and no government equipment to take care of themselves.

Oh Debbie, my heart is heavy for the people in Haiti, making a donation just doesn't seem enough.....prayers bring comfort and I cry to God to help any way using his great will can....I just want to pack my bags and go over to help if only to bring comfort by holding a baby or embracing the hurt......Let us all prayer for these poor yet beautiful people. Thank you for posting this.......:-) Hugs

Hi Debbie, Yes--let's all pray hard for the people in Haiti.. That's absolutely horrible. I've been watching Fox News --and the devastation there is unbelievable. We're going to give an extra check to the Salvation Army this month.

Hugs,

I really can't express how very powerfully that quote from Rose Kennedy has struck me -- and then to hear that the poor Haitians are actually singing is just astounding.

I hope the international community will come through for them -- NOW, anyway -- it's a terrible disaster and yet I have hope that perhaps their plight will finally result in an improvement in their lives?

Sares said...

We just never know when tragedy will strike our lives. It really makes you be thankful we have the necessities in our lives, especially the things like clean water, food and shelter. Coping without these things would make it a million times more difficult to deal with the really hard things, like the loss of loved ones.

Deb said...

Loved the way you began this Post with the quote by Rose Kennedy. I believe she wrote "A Portrait of My Heart" which was filled with her wise quips & quotes.

Still praying for your happiness and healing
