We had seven tornadoes touch down and do damage in our county yesterday. They were not near our house, but the biggest one passed within one mile of my daughter’s house. Her husband just happened to be home at the time (middle of the day, which he never is) and he got everyone into the basement. They are all okay, and as far as they know, the only damage to their house is the winds tore off their front screen door. They are staying with us for the time being, as their town is still completely without power (Broken link, active May 23, 2008). (Yay! Grandkids in the house!) We are very grateful this morning that the Lord protected us all through those storms. (The Lord has preserved us through every storm life has thrown at us, and He will continue to do so. As Christians who love the Lord, our lives are not storm- free, and sometimes we have to “hunker down in the basement” while the storm does its damage, but how faithful is the Lord, that we emerge whole when it is all over!) The town of Windsor, Colorado was not so blessed (Broken link, active May 23, 2008) – a local news station has set up a tornado relief fund (Broken link, active May 23, 2008) to help those who need it whose homes were destroyed.
