Hey friends,

As many of you know, our part of the country has endured several severe and terrifying storms lately. The devastating tornado in Joplin has claimed at least 117 lives, which I've heard, if you analyze it per capita, would be similar to New York City losing 11,000 lives in a single event.

The weather service is predicting storms again tonight and some are saying that these will be even worse than before. Again, these are predictions, only giving the possible "potential" for what "might" come, but the fear is already in those of us who live in the Southern Plains.

If you pray, please say a prayer tonight. Pray for those in Joplin who are homeless and without loved ones, and pray for those in the path of the storms again tonight.

These are some pictures I took the night of the Joplin tornado, from our home in Oklahoma.

Right now the weather is cloudy, muggy, and ominous. The wind is picking up. If you are in our area and are in the path of these storms, please charge your phones, pack your important documents and food, diapers, and water, and keep your family close tonight. Again, if you are not in the path of these storms, please pray for this area of the country.

Thanks, friends. Be safe.


  1. Thinking of you and praying for you and your family. I hope you guys are all okay! I just saw that a string of tornadoes hit Oklahoma. :(

  2. Thanks, y'all. We were never close to the tornadoes, but we did spend part of the evening in a storm shelter. These crazy days make me so much more thankful for the beautiful days. My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones in this storm.
