In the Midst of the Storm

In the midst of destruction...
hunkered down in our safe place
my daughter
asked Jesus into her heart!

It is something she has been praying about for awhile now.


Here is some more of our community...
just miles from our home.
 This use to be two story office buildings.
 A two story home over 150 years old.
 The First United Methodist Church and our operations building at the bank I work at. Normally it would have been filled with co-workers but we were sent home two hours earlier.
 This was our church home before the Lord lead us to Brook Hills. It is also where my son Dylan goes to preschool. It was normally filled with little ones getting ready to go home.
 First Baptist
 The Methodist Church- this is where Colin went to Mom's Day Out.
Old Downtown... full of history.

Don't wait for disaster to ask your self...
where would you go if you died tonight?


Tears. Lots of Tears

 "Tears. Lots of Tears" is the headlines today. This is an aerial view of my community.
Just one of many communities hit.
 This is the scene as you walk down the streets of Cullman.
 Many businesses gone including our operations building at the bank I work at.
 The Busy Bee Cafe.
 Christ Lutheran Church
 East Side Baptist Church and Cullman Christian Academy
We have trick or treated at this house with our kids for years. The house was picked up and rotated 90 degrees. What you see is the side of the house, where the front of the house should be.  
It took me a moment to realize the business in the middle was missing.
** Had to go back in here and edit this one... he,he! My mil was looking at this and she said..
"This isn't tornado damage. They gutted that awhile back!"
We all got a good laugh out of it!
Can someone please tell the people in my picutre?:)
More pictures to come.
Please keep the residents of Alabama and surrounding states in your prayers.
Pray the Lord's name will be glorified in the midst of such devastation.
