It scared me then.......................


I can still the feel the terror and sadness I felt watching Dorothy's world be swept away in a devastating tornado........................

Because it's pretty much the same way I feel today


I can't imagine such devastation in real life.
And though I know how little comfort it brings, in the immediate aftermath,  I also know there's a planet full of grief and love and prayers - much larger than any tornado could ever be - heading that way.

With sadness,

  3. My stomach just hurts from seeing the devastation. We did have a scary day yesterday because my hubby's cousin lives in Moore Ok. But thank God, she and her family are safe.

    Sending prayers to everyone in this devastation part of our country.

  7. Evelyn, I'm 8 minutes from that mess. Everyone in my family is accounted for, so I'm blessed. I checked my daughter and nephew out of school when I felt the air pressure. It was hailing when we got home. I got them before the schools got locked down. Thanks for the prayers. They are comforting. It's hard to be so close to so much suffering.

  10. So true, Suzan. Heartbreak for the loss. Prayers for those surviving the horror. Yet tearful smiles for the miracles. Did you see the story about Bowzer who tried to come out from under his owner's fallen house as she stood there calling for him ? Looked just like Toto ! I cried for her happy reunion. That sweet little lady...all she wanted was her puppy. So happy that God had granted her that wish.

  11. The picture leave me speechless and the event makes me count my blessings. I hope all these people will find help and I pray most of them will be reunited with their loved ones.

  13. That was terrible. My home town just outside Chicago was hit by an F-5 in 1990. I can't recognize anything anymore when I go home. They rebuilt everything and it's nice...but it's non recognizable as home to me.

  14. So terrible, so sad. I ached for them too. But it was encouraging seeing the good that came to the the town afterwards.
