Wordless Wednesday – Disney Letter F!

Focused on the Magic
Today’s Wordless Wednesday Blog Post theme is the Disney Letter F, which is a wonderful theme if you ask me!  My good friend Deb from Focused on the Magic normally spearheads this blog hop, but she and the rest of the northeast are working on the things that really matter in the wake of former Hurricane Sandy, so I’m writing my blog post more in tribute for Deb and the rest of the people there then for any other reason.  Here are the things that matter to me about the Letter F:

  • Focus — as in Focus on staying safe!  You all have been in my prayers, and while I know the destruction has been intense, and there have been some tragic loss of life, please know that I’m still praying for all of you!
  • Focused on the Magic — Deb, special prayers go out to you and your family in New Jersey, along with the other incredible people that I’ve had the incredible pleasure of meeting over the past two years!  Stay Safe everyone!
  • Faith — Times like this brings out the best in people.  Unfortunately, it can also bring out the worst in people.  I have faith that, by and large, people will show compassion for their neighbor during this time.

Keep it real, everyone!  Say a prayer for those families that have lost loved ones because of the storm, and say continued prayers for those that are still in harms way, that Jesus will lift them up and carry them all to safety.  God Bless You all!  Now, a few pictures to hopefully distract you from the turmoil, even if it’s only for a few minutes!  Enjoy!
