Things can change in a matter of a minute

Hey sweet friends....

Would you please pray for my community as we have endured horrific damage from tornados last night?

Our home was spared. We did have baseball size hail, but in comparison to those that we know that have lost EVERYTHING......we are just fine.

So, please pray for this area of West TN and ask God's people to come together in such a force to help rebuild lives that are just shattered right now.

He is our refuge in times of need. I praise Him even in these storms. I thank you for your prayers and your sweet hearts for the body of Christ.

Blessings~

Fran,

While at work last night, I saw a quick news story on the tornadoes. But since it is never an issue where I live, I didn't think much about it. Boy what a reminder that no matter what I need to keep everyone lifted up in prayer.

Praying that the Lord shows you ways to be hands and feet to these hurting people.

Blessings, Joanne

Just "found" your blog a few days ago. I just love your sweet spirit and your boldness in praising the Lord. Prayers to you and those surrounding you from this fellow blogger way on the other side of Tennessee.

Hey Fran, I thought about you last night. I am glad you are all okay. We made it through without any damage as well but do have several friends with Kids at Union. Lots of prayers are certainly needed.
Blessings,
Linda

Thank you Father that your hand was on Fran and her family. I ask now for all that lost homes and possessions, that you would move over them now with a great outpouring of love. I thank you that you hold these people and I ask that they would feel a tangible touch from you. God I also pray that you would motivate your people into service for the rebuilding of this region. You are in control, please guide your people down your path. In Jesus name, amen.

Thank God you and your family are safe. I was watching the news and knew that some blog sisters were probably in that area. I will pray for all in that area. As Christians, we should be the ones helping others. I think we've all come to just think oh, the government will do it. We need to do the work!

Susan said...

Definitely praying for you, your community and all of those touched by this tragedy.
Glad you are safe and well.

I was standing in line at the bank at 6pm tonight and saw a blurb that said 50 killed in Franklin and wondered how close you were. So I stopped by to see and whoa! That kind of hail can damage cars and heads and roofs and...oh no. Praying for you God's comfort and wisdom to know how to help so many needy. You have such a servant's heart!

BethAnne said...

We are praying for sure! I saw this on the news last night and couldnt believe the devastation. Your friend in East Tenn is praying!

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
