Pray for the South!

According to one of the recent reports, the recent tornadoes in the South have taken the lives of

131 people in Alabama

32 people here in Mississippi

30 people in Tennessee

13 people in Georgia

8 people in Virginia and

1 person in Kentucky.

This is the highest tornado death toll in nearly 40 years.


I'm so very happy that Meredith, Claire, and I ended up not heading to Tuscaloosa yesterday, because we probably would have been caught up in this:

Aren't those some scary images??

Please pray for all of the people affected by these horrific tornadoes, particularly in Alabama.
Things like this sure do make you appreciate your life and the lives of those you love.

so devastating! my stomach is in knots from viewing and hearing about all the damage. What a blessing in disguise that you guys weren't able to go there yesterday...

Uh, so glad you didn't go to T-town yesterday!! Might be one of the best decisions you ever made (not that you don't make wise decisions!)!
