Please Pray

Please be praying for the people of our county.  Many have died and the devastation is great.  While we were huddled in the basement with candles and flashlights, many homes were completely flattened. The last estimate I heard was that over 170 tornados were sighted.

I have often grumbled during the winter months that snow storms headed straight for us would divide and leave their lovely cover of snow on either side of us.  No more. The tornados that were headed straight for us divided and although we are safe and our homes are intact, there is great devastation around us.

We lost several trees.  One huge tree is still standing but every limb has been broken and either hit the ground or is hanging loosely. It looks as if someone walked around it snapping limbs in a circle. We'll be taking them down over the next week or so.

We had a bit of flooding in both houses but nothing to complain about.  We are thankful we had a basement to go to, thankful we planned ahead and were there before the storms hit, thankful our animals survived and thankful that all of our family and church family are well.

We continue to pray for friends and others in our area and across the south, whose homes suffered great damage and for those who lost their homes, their friends and even family members during these storms.

Please pray.
