We Have You in Our Hearts

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the entire Silverado team, we hope that you and your loved ones have made it safely through the storm. We would love it if you would let us know how you are doing. In the face of such devastation, we find hope in the stories of neighbors helping neighbors, of first responders working tirelessly night and day to rescue people, of people from different walks of life, different races and religions coming together to demonstrate that we are stronger together and together we WILL get through this.

Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

On that note, We would like to share this poem that was in the Houston Chronicle on Monday, August 31st:

"If you want
to pray for Houston
you have to pray in her way
pray like Beyoncé when she was at HSPVA
or Billy and Dusty shooting pool at Rudyard's
pray like you're sitting over soup at Spanish Flowers
or pho at Mai's steaming your glasses
pray like the kids playing soccer on the east side
or mutton busting at the livestock show
pray like the runners in Memorial Park lacing them up
or the researchers in the medical center looking into microscopes
if you want to pray for Houston you have to pray as quietly as the Rothko Chapel or Houston Zen Center
and you have to pray as loudly as the old scoreboard at the Astrodome after a José Cruz home run
you have to pray sitting under a live oak tree or standing next to an azalea bloom while your skin calms in the heat
if you want to pray for Houston
you have to pray without pretense this ain't Dallas
and in a neighborly way as friends come out to check on each other in the rain
and those who are far away watch screens and wipe our eyes
if you want to pray for Houston raise a bottle of Shiner to the gray sky
and say that 130 mile an hour winds and 9 trillion gallons of rain are no match for a city of such life and diversity
you can fill up our bayou but you will never rain on our parade."

- By Rev. Jeremy Rutledge

"I sit on the rich, moist earth, green earth, and draw my knees to my chest. All is not lost. The birds have simply moved on. They give me the courage to do the same."

 HUG Corner: Thought for the Week - 10/2

10/2/2017

"All I know from my own experience is that the more loss we feel the more grateful we should be for whatever it was we had to lose. It means we had something worth grieving for. The ones I’m sorry for are the ones that go through life not even knowing what grief is."
