Prayers for those in the Heartland

Like many of you, I have seen the various news stories on TV covering the devastation the Tornadoes and storms left behind when they struck on Friday, March 2nd, 2012. I watched a lot of the Weather Channel, trying to see if it was anywhere near where my family lives, and I am personally blessed to share that all of my family is fine, however my Aunts neighborhood was not. Her home was not damaged, although many of her neighbors homes were. I can't imagine what they are going through there, but I do know my Aunt and Uncle, who are such giving people, will do whatever they can to help their friends and neighbors.

My prayers go out, especially, to those who lost loved ones... and some, everything they have ever known. I saw an older woman on the weather channel - she was sitting on a porch looking bewildered and still in shock - and she said she was just 'glad to be alive'. It makes you feel so grateful and puts everything into perspective. God bless her and so many just like her.

Please, everyone - pray for these people, do what you can to help, and protect yourself and your families by purchasing a weather-alert radio, if you don't already own one. It could save your life.

God bless you all...
