Well, its Friday girls and that means it's time to give God some praise for His mighty-ness this week!!! Woo-hoo!! Thank you Patty for hosting this each week. We love you!
Ok, well, if you have read my blog at all this week you know it's been a week filled with sad emotions, overwhelming feelings of helplessness, and visuals of tornado destruction that I am having a hard time getting my mind around.......tornados blew threw my area on Tuesday night and did MASSIVE damage. I have read that the tornado itself was approximately 1/2 mile wide and 1 mile long. It was an F-4.....and according to tornado people, that's big time!
We awoke Wednesday morning to lives torn upside down and families home shattered completely or near total loss. Union University was so damaged that it will be all but starting over for that campus. But, not one student loss life as it blew right threw campus. God's hand was protecting His people.
God's heart has shown up in its great big glorious God kind of way since then. We are coming together in ways that I cannot articulate. We are doing things for people with such a willingness and love for God's people that we'll do anything for folks we know and for people we don't know.
We might be the 1st glimpse of Jesus to some.
Where my kids go to school, the high school kids are off today so they can literally be the hands and feet of Christ to those who need help cleaning up. That makes me so happy that my heart literally jumps when I think of them out there doing that.
Lives were lost Tuesday night and that tears this soft hearted child up. But, so many more lives were spared. So....we band together and work together in the name of Jesus to show love, compassion, generosity, willingness, support, and we help each other in this difficult situation.
We also need to pray for those that may not know Christ and through this devastation they will find the One who truly Saves.
Blessings and Love~
