Today, I'm writing this blog post with a heavy heart. There have been so many things that happened in the past few days.
As most of you know, I'm from Alabama. There were 120 tornadoes in Alabama alone last week. A lot of them were directly in the path of my family (both my family and M's family). My in-laws just got power back yesterday. My mother, sisters and dad still do not have power. It could take a few more days for them to get power back.
A whole family was killed in my hometown. The images I've seen on Facebook and the news have broken my heart. It hurts to be away at a time like this, but I think it would hurt more to actually be there. M and I left from block leave the day before the tornadoes happened.
I've lived in the South just about my whole life. I've seen the devastation that tornadoes can bring. Nothing compares to what happened last week.
Please keep Alabama and all of those affected by last weeks tornadoes in your prayers. It will be a while before anything is 'normal' for them.
Also on my heart is our troops. While we had a great victory yesterday, I'm worried that our troops will be in even more danger now. Troops are always on my prayer list, but they will be getting extra prayers.
Be blessed and have a great week!
