My brother and his family's home of eight years...
is no more... This devastation took place on March 8th 2011.
Praising the Lord all seven lives were spared, even Max their puppy.
The chimney stands alone
A mute witness to the sky
A few blackened timbers
Point scraggly fingers this way and that
A charred shell stares through blank eyes
A man's dream, his hard work,
A women's gathered life,
The treasure of each child...
Only black and ashes.
But the heart of the home remains:
A man's hardworking love,
A women's tender nurture,
The hope and promise in each child...
A living testimony to the goodness of our God.
2011 March 8th
