Well, this week, those two loves had a rather large collision. God spoke to us, and we all heard him loud and clear.
This was the pile of hail that was dropped outside our front door.
As you can see, the hail is nearly the same size as a golf ball - and there are hundreds of reports of hail much larger than this.
This is my driveway - it looked like it had just snowed outside. I've never seen anything like it!
A little scary? Definitely.
Destructive? Beyond belief.
And our damage is minuscule in comparison to the thousands of people who suffered real losses.
When it was all said and done, our backyard looked like a salad bowl.
The sweethearts on the hill took a huge hit. Here are some before and after shots.
|Remember the brother hosta who was showing off to his tattered twin sister?|
|This is what's left of him. His sister is laughing her leaves off.|
|Here is one of my large hostas, healthy and strong...|
|Aaaaand… not so much|
|And my gorgeous Virginia Blue Bells….|
|…. yeah, that's them!|
|Coral Bells before...|
|And my beloved hydrangeas happily in bloom|
|Not a bloom to be found.|
Keep them in your prayers tonight and every night.
