Praying….

Car damage along Rangeline Road

Please pray for Joplin, Missouri!  Joplin was hit last night by tornados.  Out of all the tornados to hit Missouri, this one has been the most deadly and caused the most damage.  It is so scary because it hits so close to home.  Joplin is about 1 hour from my home.  We were spared and I am thankful.  But I am so sad for the city of Joplin.  I can’t begin to imagine what that is like.  One of my friends has a family member that lives in Joplin.  She is 5 weeks away from her due date.  Saturday night she had a baby shower.  Now everything is GONE.  She has no home, nothing for her baby……with the baby coming in a month.  My heart is broken for her and so many others.  Please pray for these people.  I want to go help….but right now they are asking that everyone stay out until they can get relief efforts organized.  Only medical personnel is being asked to come.

I am alone at work today.  And I’m kinda scared!  The weather is scary today.  I’m thankful that the Lord is with me wherever I am, at all times!  61807666
