Tornados, floods, earthquakes. It's devastating, even perplexing that so many natural disasters have happened in such a short period of time. It's almost impossible for me to watch the news now and not tear up at the heartbreaking stories of people who have lost everything. In most cases though, these people still have hope, remaining thankful that they are still alive and that their loved ones are safe. What an encouragement and incentive for me to focus on eternal matters, and not the things of this world.
