Rain and floods, crop destruction, life disruption all are part of the midwest.
Open your hearts to the people who live there and their families who wait to hear from them.
Open your hearts to the rescuers who work long hours and days to relieve their suffering.
And then remember there are floods and earthquakes all across the world. Who thinks of China or Iceland in the course of everyday life? The people who live there. And we do even for a moment when a natural disaster happens.
Send them prayers of peace in their hearts as they struggle with rebuilding their lives.
