After The Storms

Wow! Arkansas, Oklahoma, and especially Missouri have had enough bad weather to last a lifetime. Tornado after tornado sad.

I think we are finally in the clear after 3 days of terrible storms.

Now it's time for many people to rebuild. Many from the ground up. If there is any good in all of this, it has to be the way strangers have come together to help strangers. Neighbors running to help neighbors.

Joplin is 45 minutes from where we live and many friends of mine have family that was affected by Sunday's tornado. These people were left with nothing. Anything you can do to help is greatly needed. Especially prayers.

We spent two nights this week hanging out in our closet under the stairs, looking at radar that showed tornados headed straight for our area.

But we were lucky and never got the worst of it. After being indoors so much, today it was time to PLAY.

And thank GOD for what we have!

Please keep the tornado victims in your prayers...

I've been wondering about you. So glad you're all ok. All this tornado action is nuts! There's some headed for Indiana tonight, but it sounds like it's all hitting south of us, near Indy. I feel so bad for everyone affected by these. It's just terrible.
