Prayers for Southern Alberta

Alberta Rainbow

I’m feeling devastated by what’s unfolding in Southern Alberta right now.

Though I live about 2,000 kms away in Southern Ontario, a part of my heart resides in the province of mountains, prairies and big skies. My ancestors settled there. My brother lives in Calgary. It is my second home.

Sadly, those big skies have unleashed more than 150mm of rain in the last 24 hours (with more to come), causing severe flooding and washing out major highways, destroying homes, upending lives. A state of emergency has been declared.

Feeling powerless to do anything else I offer my heartfelt prayers for a swift recovery.

Be well,
