Shock Waves

Being so high up in the Carpathian Mountains, Sfantu Gheorghe escaped flooding until early this morning.  Though my house was not damaged…just a little water in the basement, the little creek down the mountain from me, turned into a wall of water rushing from the Sugash Mountains…flooding 110 homes across the city that were on the banks of the creek, washing two cars clear across town, tearing up streets that cross over the creek, and causing the death a 36 year old man with heart problems  – the son of Jutka, one of my co-workers at Pro Nobis Counseling Center.  They were trying to rescue their animals when his heart gave out.  So sad….

Words fail me…I’m still missing my Dan.  I have been told by many that a mother never gets over losing a child.  My heart goes out to Jutka, in her great loss.  May the God of all comfort be with those who are suffering because of the widespread flooding here in Europe, or because of the loss of loved ones.   — Anne

Our Father owns cattle on 1,000 hills. He can provide for us. Cast your cares upon Him.

Beautiful sunset over Sugash Mountains...little did we know those clouds held disaster for Sfantu Gheorge before morning.

Sunset made a nice backdrop for my green house.

Every few seconds, new colors displayed God's creativity!

Fading quickly, the changing colors held us there, fascinated by the beauty.

Turning, turning, the earth took us farther away from the sun until there was nothing but the black of night.
