This postcard took my breath away when I saw it for sale and I had to have it. Be sure to click it to enlarge so you can really appreciate it. Because of this card's power in the face of the Gulf of Mexico Oil Disaster I am basically going to let it speak for itself. But a few links:
Morgan City's website homepage contains tabs with information about the town (but no statement on the oil disaster or how the community has been or expects to be affected). One of the tabs is "Calendar" with a drop-down menu containing Recent Events. The second-to-last event highlighted with photos is the Shrimp and Petroleum Festival.
Freda who authors What's the Story in Dalamory included a link that I am repeating in this post. If It Was My Home contains a Visualizing-the-BP-Oil-Disaster-map that is interactive, allowing you to place the damned spill anywhere in the world as a way to compare the size of the horrible thing in relation to other parts of the planet --- this celestial body, our home, that could definitely benefit from a blessing right now.
Certain of our blessings can never change. The important things of life will not perish. In whatever brave new world emerges from this chaos, homes will be created, good deeds will be done and sacrifices will be made. God will be reverently worshipped in many a church and chapel. Hospitals, libraries and colleges will be organized and endowed. The greatest things will endure - faith, hope and love, and the moral nature in man.
