Bless the Children and Animals

Doc and I were in the Biloxi and New Orleans area last year.  There, we found some of the most spectacular images with our cameras. So we spend several hours on a bridge, dodging traffic and took pictures of a marsh area.

As Hurricane Isaac continues to grind at the edge of land, eating away the dunes and flattening the marshes I am praying for the people as well as the wild life in that area.

The Lord gave Adam the responsibility of caring for this world He had created for us.  When Adam and Eve left the garden, their labor increase,  but God never took away the responsibility for caring for the earth and the life within it.

Won’t you join me today in prayer for this area?

Here are some images from our trip

    So powerful, so sorrowful. A lady being interviewed said “I trust God but I don’t trust the levees.” Aren’t we told to trust only God? I have thought about her statement and find it profound.

    Praying for God’s divine protection. Believing that when God’s people pray for protection, He answers. Lovely pics as usual.

      Thank you Mindy, I’m praying too. Over the years I have watched several hurricanes pound this area, and watched as it restores. God has an amazing restoration plan in place for more than just us. He heals the earth when it turns on its self. Amazing.
