Images of
Heartbreak and Hope in the Aftermath of Harvey
All for one!
Saving Innocence!
Trying to hold it together!
Waiting...




       ...for compassionate condolence!
Self-sufficiency in the face of tragedy.
Weathering the heartache together!
Stranded but safe... for now...

This guy was rescued!
A family of six was not....
Damage and destruction everywhere
you look.....
...but hope and help , too!
Harvey H E R O E S!

I wrote this song after experiencing a flood in the San
Antonio area... seems pretty appropriate today.

Just off interstate 10
Down Farm Road 78
When he came to Cibolo Creek
His sins were washed away...

It'd been raining hard that night
Lightning lit the Texas sky
That's how he saw her, standing lost
with no one else in sight
She was maybe 4 years old
A doll held tight in her arms
Drenched and shivering, scared to death
Crying for her dad and mom

He wondered, just for a second,
if he should even try to help
What if someone got the wrong idea?
He'd be right back in that cell
But he stopped his truck
He picked her up
and with a blanket in the front seat
Rain-soaked and tired to the bone
She curled up, fast asleep

Just off interstate 10
Down Farm Road 78
When he came to Cibolo Creek
His sins were washed away...

He drove on about two miles or so
Saw lights bobbin' in the trees
When he told them that he'd found the girl
Her father fell to his knees
"We just lost her mother to the raging water
I thought I'd lost her too.  
Thank God you stopped
and saved my girl --
I didn't know what I'd do."

Now that dad didn't know his girl's savior
had a shady past in his wake
All he knew was his daughter
was safe and sound...
And he had a stranger to thank.

Some men might make a mess of it
Choosing every path that's wrong
Without a kind or considerate thought
The don't know how to belong
But he'd changed and made amends
And the second change he'd found
That night proved, if only to himself
He'd turned his life around.

Just off interstate 10
Down Farm Road 78
When he came to Cibolo Creek
His sins were washed away...

Just off interstate 10
Down Farm Road 78
When he came to Cibolo Creek...

His sins were washed away
His sins were washed away
All his sins were washed away
His sins...
were washed away.
