Oklahoma Hit Again


Oklahoma was hit again with tornadoes last night. Eight are dead and there is a missing 3 year old. This family needs our prayers because they lost a 15 month old in the storms.

Alice and I went to the storm shelter when the alarm was sounded. I was very worried about Alice because she was on crutches. She made it fine, in facts she ended up driving me to the hospital. In the storm shelter she was having a panic attack, so I was standing up to give her room to get to some fresh air. When I stood up my blood pressure apparently drop out because I passed out an fell flat on my face. I am just so thankful I did not fall on the five small children that were in front of me sitting on the floor. I ended up with a broken foot and now can not bear any weight on it until I see the orthopedic doctor in 3 to 5 days. They said it was a clean break and should heal up OK. Like I say I am just thankful it wasn't anything serious.

We do need to pray for all the families that lost so much.

I am glad both of you are mostly okay, though sorry about your broken foot. I know where Alice is coming from--I would have been freaking out myself. I am very claustrophobic and also afraid of the dark. I hope those poor families recover their loved ones. Our world can be a frightening place sometimes.

Glad to hear that you and Alice are OK. Can't imagine the stress you had to go through in all of that.

Yes, lifting up many families right now.

Oh my goodness! Wanda, feel better! It must have been so scary to hear that alarm. But I'm glad your family has remained (relatively) unharmed by the tornadoes.

Thinking of you.

Wishing you well,
