Please send prayers-total devastation
I live in Lincoln, NE (eastern Nebraska), and am originally from a small town-Sidney, IA (Southwest Iowa). I want to check in here with my WA family to at a minimum give my apologies for not commenting this week- I have so many follows and comments that I want to respond to in addition to all of my training that I am excited to continue. The other reason I'm here today is to ask for prayers and support for the horrific tragedy that has come with the floods where I live. Thousands of families, pets, and livestock are without homes, food, clothing and basic necessities. They have lost everything. Many have lost their livelihoods-especially our farmers and ranchers. Several people have died and thousands of animals have perished in the floodwaters.People are stranded in many towns and cities on "islands" of what's left. Many of the places I grew up in are destroyed and my family's farm ground, original farmstead, and other farms of ours are completely wiped out.The road I take home is gone, the church I grew up going to with my Grandma is submerged, the pastures I rode horses in with my childhood friend are swamps and the list goes on and on. We have never seen this widespread amount of devastation to our states and the heartbreak is almost unbearable. We will get through this with our Midwestern hard work ethic, our love of one another, and most of all by the grace of God, but I simply ask that send your thoughts and prayers.
