This years tornado season has been relatively quiet in Mississippi.  There was a tornado on Dec. 25th, south of us, but conditions were right on target for us to get one to ~ Praise the Lord it didn't happen.  And there have been some isolated tornadoes that popped up in different counties throughout the spring.
We try to be prepared ~ extra charcoal for the grill, matches, batteries for all our lanterns/flashlights, bottled water, non perishable food, etc. 
But some things you can't prepare for ~
yesterday was one of those days for Oklahoma....
all the canning jars full of food, flashlights with fresh batteries, and bottles of water can't protect you from this.....This aerial photo shows the remains of homes hit by a massive tornado in Moore, Okla., Monday May 20, 2013. A tornado roared through the Oklahoma City suburbs Monday, flattening entire neighborhoods, setting buildings on fire and landing a direct blow on an elementary school. (AP Photo/Steve Gooch)

Those folks lives are forever changed.
And while we mourn with them, and pray for them, and states send aid and search teams ~ this doesn't affect us like it does them (contrary to what Jim Cantores said last night on the Weather Channel). 
We are praying that more survivors are found. 
We are praying that relief and aid are quickly & easily available and red tape is minimum.
Most of all, I am praying for those parents who sent their babies to school yesterday and never saw them again.
I cannot imagine!

  1. We had one bad night of worrying. But thank the Lord my family is safe. But some many friends and families weren't. It a very sad day for so many people. Please keep them in your prayers.


Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
