Remembering...

those that died 15 years ago in Oklahoma City...

also 15 years ago today I got engaged...

the Alfred p Murry building crumbled in a day

my marriage over a series of years...

the children of that tragedy suffer scars and loss...

my children will always carry a brokenness.

Timothy McVeigh planned and executed that demise...

I carry the weight of my own.


Today is a hard day.
and to say otherwise would be a lie.

((Cheri)) As a child of a broken home I know the weight of the burden you carry. It has been a phenomenal journey for me to see the Lord meet me in unique and special ways due to thoese scars and losses. Rest in Him today. His mercies know no bounds.

So sorry about the tenderness, heaviness and brokenness associated with that day.

But there's hope, renewal and restoration for you and for the families of those who've lost so much. I pray and wish that for you!
