Sunday May 22, 2011
A devastating tornado sweep thru Joplin, Mo
60 miles from my home in Crane.
As of today, Monday, 116 lost souls, 1200 injured, some are still missing.
Sunday evening after attending our Grand daughters First Communion.
A very blessed day soon turned into tradgey.
A very frightening moment as we met the wrath of this storm,
We were trying to beat the storm and were only about 5 minutes from home,
when we hit the black wall of wind....
My silent prayers soon turned into verbal Hail Mary's and Our Father's.
Next came the white wall of blinding rain and hail....
Our little Toyota had the arms of The Heavenly Father wrapped around it
as we speed to safety....
their home, their place of employment and most of all their love ones.
My infant department in Walmart today was almost completely
sold out of diapers, bottles, formula and clothing.
Churches and organizations are buying supply's for the victims...
I helped men who have never been in an infant department pick out
diapers, wipes, formula and baby cereal.
They kept asking me what else do I need to send....
Thank You Kind Neighbors....
Dear Heavenly Father I come before you this evening
thanking you for all the blessings of this day.
I ask you dear Father to comfort your children in Joplin,
Give them strength and courage,
Shelter them from this cold rainy night,
Bring peace into their hearts,
as they face another day may they feel Your Love.
I ask this in Your Holy precious Name, I pray. Amen
