The Storm

Thank you to everyone for your concern for our famly after hearing about the tornado that passed through Griffith. We are okay. All around us, most of the homes were intact with minor damage (if any). Please pray for those who lost their homes and businesses and for the town itself as they slowly begin to put things back together.

Here are some pictures I took early on Tuesday morning of our neighborhood as we were all coming out to assess the damage. It was the most amazing thing to see these trees completely torn out of the ground.

TJ's prayer

No pictures today, just a cute story. Last night when we were saying our family prayers TJ said the cutest thing when it was his turn...

"please fill our bodies with Godness and loveness..."

I couldn't control my giggles. It was just the sweetest thing.
