After yesterday's horrific tornadoes and storms hailed through the south, I had the worst feeling in my stomach...feeling of sadness for those who lost everything--the people they love, the house they call a home, their normal way of life--and all I could do was thank God for His many blessings and for watching over my family and friends.
At the end of the day, all that matters is the air we breathe and the people we have surrounding us...material stuff just really doesn't seem to matter when you think about just how blessed we all are to be alive--some weren't that lucky. As the death toll continues to rise, specifically in neighboring Alabama, I just know I will be spending lots of my time praying for everyone affected. Prayer for strength to get them through this, prayer for hope that life will go on, and prayer for the peace that the Good Lord is watching over and guiding them.
We were lucky in Nashville...bad storms with horrible rain, but nothing like others faced. Friends and family of ours in Knoxville are without power, Jeff's Mom's house has a fallen tree on the roof, my cousin Lauren's car windshield was destroyed and had major hail damage, but everyone is OK and I am thankful no one was seriously injured. Thank you God for protecting those I love most.
