A Storm In Kansas

Posted by blamethebanjo on Saturday, May 5, 2007

Thoughts and prayers go out to the people in Kansas who just went through a devastating storm.Most everything in that one small town and the surrounding area was stripped from the Earth.It is hard to imagine power like that.Like lightning there is nothing known to man that can stand against its' mighty force.

We are as helpless as ants in the face of these unforgiving giants of nature.They are at once frightening and fascinating.In the grip of something so strong there is no rich or poor.Everyone is equal,the strong,the weak,the healthy and the sick.Life it'self  is no concern to these powers the likes of which hit Greensburg Kansas.

No mercy is shown it seems and it makes one wonder why all over again.The why that we ponder everytime something of this magnitude happens. For one thing I feel it puts in perspective the fact that we are here together.Much more alike than we think sometimes.We are equally of worth as human beings each feeling pain or joy standing in awe when we are reminded of the fragility of life.

Although there is no power here on or earth that is greater than these forces of nature we know that beyond that there is a greater power.Someone who could with a whisper calm the strongest wind and rain and darken the lightning in it's place.

There again can come the question,why? Why do these things terrorize us with no intervention from above? It is my belief that these are the questions that will never be answered as long as we are bound to the Earth.There will come a day when we will find all the answers to all questions.That day when we can ask the One who has control of everything and everyone will understand the why.

Amen, Brother Darrell.  Living in Kansas most of my life, and having been in too many severe storms and tornados, while out in the middle of nowhere on drilling rigs, I wonder if I have about used up my life-credits.  I am trying to be ready.  Brad (a Kansas Geologist and banjo player, not necessarily in that order).
