Here We Are Again - OKC Bombing Remembered

I've been struggling with my words lately.  As you can see I haven't blogged in quite some time.  It has been one of those seasons, but I can't let today go by without a few words.
I turned 48 this week. A week of destruction, tragedy and memories.
It is hard to believe I was only 30 years old when it happened.  Each year I remember something new about that day and the weeks that followed. This year I remembered the interview of Rebecca Anderson's sister. I can't remember the exact words but her sister said that Rebecca really helped her to get her life on track, just helped her get it together.  Rebecca was the selfless nurse who had her husband drop her off at the site immediately following the incident so she could help.  She was fatally injured from falling debris. She gave her life to help others. Amazing woman.
 
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 
 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.   Revelations 21:1-5 (KJV)
 
I'm sorry I have no more words for today.
Love,
Territory Mom
