As I started my post for this morning, I was going to grab a clip art picture of a tornado and thought of my painting. The "Storm of Life".
Things can be going along just fine, when all of a sudden your world gets turned upside down.
The devastation in many places in Oklahoma this week has been witnessed by all the video tapes and pictures on television all week.
I sat one day and just kept tearing up as they showed different scenes that have played out and were caught on camera.
The loss of life....
10 children. Breaks my heart. Pray for the parents.
The financial devastation. Think of yourself right now.... Imagine that happened to you. Can you? To have everything in material possessions blown away. How would you fair?
Think of the emotional devastation. All the keepsakes and pictures. One woman was looking for her mother's cremains.
This "storm of life" will forever be etched into our minds and our hearts. Those children that survived will be affected their entire life by these tornadoes and the bravery and compassion of those around them.
I think it is wonderful that you can donate money by texting 90999 to the American Red Cross. There is another number to text specifically for Tornado relief. I don't know that number and could not find it this morning.
Donation Form: Yes, I'd like to ... Credit Card Number: ... Text STORM to 80888 ...

Tornado possibilities again for another day.
Pray that those young children trapped inside the collapsed school with their teachers will be alive!
Just saw death toll 91 and that is only the toll at Moore, OK
CORRECTED death toll 24
In looked outside and saw that some trees have blown over during the night. The news said we had 70-80 MPH winds at one point. I rarely get scared and last night hearing the wind beating on my south windows and then my west windows intensely for about 20 minutes made me well...nervous about getting scared.
I just prayed.
Thunderstorm here now. Was a flash flood warning. but it may have expired now.
Thanks to all who emailed and sent messages thru Etsy to check on me!
