Sadly, the ending for many was not as positive, and for some devastating.
The following photo from Kathy Doyle was shared with the message, “Nature shows and teaches us life lessons”. “This tree didn’t resist the storm…it let go and as a result it fell but didn’t break. Unlike the other tree last year that stood it’s ground and snapped under pressure. This tree will live and stand tall again… with a little help”.
And who told the ocean you can only come this far?
And who showed the moon where to hide till evening?
Whose words alone can catch a falling star?
The very same God that spins things in orbit
Runs to the weary, the worn and the weak
And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken
They conquered death to bring me victory
I know my Redeemer lives!
