Prayers for Alberta

The flooding in southern Alberta is very much on the minds of all Canadians yesterday and today, as the water continues to rise and entire communities are evacuated.  I was relieved to hear that my brother and his family, who live just east of Calgary, are not at risk, but my heart goes out to all those who are having to deal with this situation.  Yet another example of how much we are all, always, at the mercy of nature's whims.  It's frightening, and humbling. And yet, as always, the stories of compassion and perseverance give you faith in power of human nature to overcome adversity.
