Strength in Numbers...a Pray OK linkup

I have no connection to anyone who lives in Oklahoma.

 I've maybe been there once, but only driving through. 

I'm not sure I could name 5 cities in Oklahoma,

But one city I will remember, for their bravery, courage, strength, and despair...

...Moore, Oklahoma.

I heard a broadcast this morning with snippets from interviews of victims. I was on my way to work listening to the fear in these poor people's voices. One story, for whatever reason, really pulled at my heartstrings. It was an elderly woman talking about how she hid in her bathroom with her dog. During the storm her dog ran out. She was explaining how she called for her dog but he didn't come. During the broadcast you heard a little commotion in the background and the newscaster say, "The dog!! The dog!!" and out of the rubble comes the little dog.

I don't know why this is the story that got me. There are tons out there. I guess maybe because we don't think about the little things in life that people lose. 

I've always believed there are strength in numbers. This could have happened to any one of us. 

Join with me in linking up our stories, prayers, and encouragement to those affected by this devastation.

There are no rules. You do not have to follow me or anyone else. Just Pray OK.
