Last House Standing

This is what hurricanes do.

On September 13, this street in Gilchrist, Texas was lined with homes and probably some businesses.

One Ike later, one house still stands.

This, to me, is a symbol of what life can do.

The winds begin to blow, the floods and storm surge begin to rise, and once-beautiful lives turn to random sticks and bricks.

I want to be the last house standing.

I want to be the one who can prevail, even if all others fall to the ferocious winds.

I just don’t want to have to face any storms to prove it.

Andy, I saw this pic, and couldn’t believe it. Wow. I reckon, though, the only way we remain standing in the storms of life is to be on our knees.
