I'm sure you have all heard about the F4 tornado that hit OKC/Moore today.
Ya'll the devastation is awful. It brings back so many memories of May 3, 1999. In fact, this storm followed almost the exact same path. Right through my hometown, tearing down everything in its path. Children are still missing. Families ripped apart.
Pray. Please just pray.
As for the kids and I, we are safe. The tornado touched down about 1/2 mile from my parents house. We were hiding in the closet when my brother-in-law called and said "get out now". I have never been so relived to get in a car! The kids quickly buckled up and we started driving. A huge tornado approaching on our left and glimpses of blue sky in front of us.
My mom drove well, the kids asked 1000 questions but remained calm overall. I manned both our cell phones as relatives texted safe routes for us to take.
We are so thankful for all your prayers and for the practical advice on the road. My dad is attempting to drive home from Dallas as we speak. We are camped out at my sisters house as my parents house had no power.
Please be praying for us as we figure out how we can help in the coming days. Pray for the kids as they process all that has happened and for me as I communicate reality in an age appropriate way. Pray us home as we are basically 'stranded' in OK right now.
Pray for Oklahoma. Pray for those whose lives have suddenly been forever changed. Pray for a miracle. There are more storms on the way. (Rain only) pray for those still trapped and for families to be reunited.
Pray for hearts to be awakened to the truth of Gods love.
His hand was covering us today. Thank you Lord.
