Reaching Up

I was struck by the intense emotions portrayed in this unique sculpture in Galveston, TX, along the beautiful Seawall. In 1900 more than 6000 residents of Galveston Island were killed in the great storm that swept across the island. This beautiful piece honors those who lost their lives and those who began work the next day to rebuild Galveston.

I am reminded that we still need to reach up when storms come into our lives.

That is a good reminder for us to seek help from God when we need it.

Hi Glenda,
Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. This photo is just beautiful. it reminded me of the words by Casting Crowns...
And I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm
