Massive rain again last night. Tornadoes danced through out northern east Texas and we made a vow to make sure we buy a weather radio. Ours was lost in the move. Actually it is obviously in the missing box with Terry's ties, my missing books and the other missing objects we have not found yet.

This painting ties right in there with all of the 'lost' ideas.  The rancher is out bringing in a lost one in the snow.  The picture is from a friend in Ponder Texas, Linda.  Our area had snow last year, which is unusual.  I finished it up yesterday about two or so just as the storms began and was able to get a quick shot of it before the darkness descended.

We were one of the lucky subdivisions that did not lose power. Highly unusual. We have to make one of those GENERATOR decisions while we are not desperately needing it.  Remembering last Feb in Dallas we were with out power for 7 or 8 days and the temps inside the house were 36 degrees.  THAT was in the middle of Dallas.  Now we are at the lake.  It takes AEP quite a while to restore things here. Last time it was two days with a good outage.

My challenge to you this morning is to go "find" a lost one. Does not have to be a stranger, could be your best friend.  Someone in your life is lost and they need you this day. Extend yourself out there and find them. It could be divorce, cancer, job loss, relationship issues, sick children...the list is long. You don't have to 'get lost' in their problem, they simply need to know someone loves them and cares. 


"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down,
his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
" Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
