~WEATHERING THE STORM~

Just another quick post today to let you know the we weathered the latest storm that slammed head first into Oklahoma yesterday.  Tornadoes seemed to be everywhere and there were indeed moments that were SCARY at best!  At the slightest notice we were ready to hunker down beneath our stairwell when the weather changed and the storms veered east.

Unfortunately, several people lost their lives yesterday.  Many more were physically injured and countless men, women and children have lost their homes.  Today is a sad day for many Oklahomans and those who live in the surrounding states.
Today I'm thankful we have only a few small branches and clumps of leaves to clean up...

Prayers going up to the Most High for those who were not as fortunate.  May God be with you all...
Love~

So glad you faired well in the last round of storms. My heartfelt prayers for those who lost loved ones and their homes. We had some severe weather here in Mo but because we have been so cold it didn't spawn tornadoes. I hope you have a few bright sunny days to recover. Stella

Rebecca, Glad you're alright. My oldest son and Family live in Shawnee and hid out in their neighbors dug-out. Safe and sound.

He lost his job on Friday and his wife was concerned that they would lose their house as well. Didn't happen...praise the Lord and he was offered a job today! Praise the Lord.

More storms to come this week. May we pray that the storms disappear...peace be still.

Blessings,

I hope this last round of storms has left you safe . I would be a nervous wreck if I lived in that part of the country.
God be with you

Ginger said...

We came through the storm ok also, just had some big hail and high winds. Clobbered my trees and flowers but that is nothing compared to the losses in OKC. So glad it wasn't close to you. Very thankful for what we have.

Rebecca,
I am so glad to hear that you and your family are okay. I was a nervous wreck about it when I saw the news. I emailed Ginger this morning to see that she was okay and she told me that she didn't think the tornadoes were where you live.
Thanks be to God!!
