Please Remember Joplin, MO...

 In your prayers today! They were hit by a tornado last night. It left a path of Destruction a half mile wide and 6 miles long they said. 89 are now reported dead. This is only about an hour and half away from where we lived. We got hit by the same storm but it had calmed down some by then..So if you can please pray for these people they are still trying to figure otu who is missing and looking for people.
Some pictures of the damage..

one photo and accompanying article has had me crying for ten minutes. What an awful awful thing. Those poor people! So glad you all are safe! I think I'll keep our cold late springs since I don't think I'd ever want to face something like that! Prayers...

They'll be in my thoughts and prayers. We just went through the same thing (almost one month to the day) and it is just devastating to read of another area hit so hard by tornadoes.

Consider it done! I haven't been able to get to email or blogs all day, but you and all your fellow Missourians are in my thoughts and prayers. So glad you are all safe and so sorry for those who weren't.
