When I look at the images of the victims of the flood, my heart and mind turn to the victims of the recent atrocities around our globe.

My heart is in anguish within me, the terrors of death have fallen upon me. Fear and trembling come upon me, and horror overwhelms me. Psalms 55:4-5
Invitation to Pray:
What laments are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination? Pray them now.
The thirteenth century stained glass window (1205-1215) which relates the stories from Genesis 6-9 about Noah, his family, and the flood. It is the westernmost window in the north side aisle at the Chartres Cathedral in France. The images in this post are found on the right hand side in the third semicircle from the bottom.
