What's important to me? My faith, my family, and my friends.
Sometimes there are books that insist on being written, so I help them along, just so I can learn what they have to say. Whenever possible, have a nice day!
After days of warnings, tornadoes hit our area today. Some areas near me were heavily damaged. Luckily, our immediate area was spared. Shifting 25 miles could have changed the story entirely.

Tonight, I'm feeling so fortunate, knowing that I don't have to spend the time without power, or cleaning up trees, or worse, looking for a place to stay. There are people doing this tonight, and people that are mourning the loss of loved ones and wish they'd "only" lost everything they owned. As they dig people out and go through more areas, the death toll keeps rising.
God was with us today as we watched the radar, ready to head to the basement. But God was also with those that had tornadoes in their midst. He didn't spare some people but strike others. Terrible things happen sometimes, and God is with us then, too. My prayers are with those affected and I wish I could ease their pain.
