      Hi Aunt Marian. Yes, we only got rain at our house. Micah and Sarah’s husband Caleb, both got caught in very heavy hail while driving. They are okay, but cars suffered damage.
      We are blessed, but so many friends and nearby communities members are not so lucky. Please pray.

    Gorgeous! I’m glad you and your family made it thru…I continue in prayer for all who were affected.

      thanks Pat! Everyday, more sadness and heartaches unveil. We are so very blessed to not be affected, but over 13,000 homes (and lives) were destroyed in just Newcastle (my hometown) and Moore.

        Thanks! I have a request for prayer. My oldest daughter has a rare autoimmune disease called Sarcoidosis. There is no treatment, cure or anything. The Sarc graduals in her body keep producing and attacking her lymph system and now her eyes. It is very painful and causes other serious side effects and can lead to blindness. She already has cataracts and she is just 31. This is Isabelle’s mommy.
        Also, my youngest is in desperate need of prayer. I cannot say what it is, but she is in deep pain from things that have happened to her. I worry about her desperately as she has major social and anxiety disorders. Thanks.

        I certainly will Darla. God is a healer and it IS His will for them to be delivered from whatever’s ailing them! As I pray I will stand on 1 John 5:14-15 ” Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”

        All things are possible for those who believe! Have a great day and please keep me posted!

        God bless,
