As a Minnesotan....


Especially as one who used to live in the Twin Cities...

Please pray for those who died, the injured, and those who are awaiting word about loved ones.

(My family is accounted for. I actually do know the Minneapolis Fire Chief, in the thick of recovery operations. His name is Jim--he's actually a permanent deacon--please pray for him and other responders to this tragedy.)

Prayers for everyone. What a tragedy. Since you kindly offered, am copying your pic to my blog, too. Had calls from everyone tonight asking if we were OK. We had been out with the kids and hadn't heard until around 8pm. By that time, loved ones were beginning to worry. Unbelievable. Horrific. Right here in Mpls.

Thanks for asking for prayer for the MFD...I have may friends there, and I know they have big hearts and are likely feeling quite overwhelmed.

God bless them.

This kind of thing stays in the back of my mind because in the 1960's, here in the town where I live, a bridge collapsed over the Ohio River. All involved are definitely in my prayers.
