What an Incredible 4 days? History Being Made Over and Over

From the Royal Wedding (which I finally watched on Saturday). I couldn't help but wonder as I listened to the Archbishop of Canterbury how Charles, Camilla and Elton John felt as The Word was proclaimed even in secular England! I loved hearing the brother of the bride read from the book of the Letters to the Romans. I also was very impressed by William and Catherine's own written prayer.
Then in contrast to the celebration was the devastation of Alabama by record number of tornadoes. Miracles of faith and family come pouring out just as so many dead are proclaimed.
And the celebration in a sense of the final justice brought to the mastermind of 9/11 not to mention his involvement in the bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania and the USS Cole. By the way his burial at sea was a good thing so that the Muslims can't have a specific grave to turn into a shrine of sorts.
Then the worst flooding of our area on the MS river since 1937. This photo I took on the drive home yesterday afternoon and shows the top of the levy on the river's side. The other photos are compliments of Fox News and the Royal family.

And finally but certainly not least but without a photo, G lost another tooth. This one had to come out and grandad pulled it Sunday. The permanent tooth was actually coming in behind it and not in the right place. I am no fortune teller but I see braces in our future!

Congrats to Miss G on losing another tooth! The tooth fairy is busy lately. :o)
Hoping the flooding goes down quickly and residents are spared any further damage to their homes and property.
