Pray for the South

I'm sure everyone has heard how devistating the storms were that tore through the south a few days ago. Our neighborhood was lucky. They were tracking the tornados literally by streets this time and one came a few blocks close to our house,but either dissipated or jumped over us. We were lucky. We have gone into our "safe room" (bathroom) several times for storms,but this is the first time we've actually gotten in the bathtub. We were outwardly calm for my son,but inside we were terrified. This was a little too close for comfort. And seeing the devistation these massive storms produced made me wonder just how SAFE our "safe room" would have been had we been hit. So many lives lost,so many homes destroyed,it's hard to imagine where to begin with the clean up or rebuilding efforts. I mean what will they do with all of the debris? I wonder about things like that-I mean it's going to be so much-entire neighborhoods/subdivisions were flattened. It makes you realize what's really important in your life---your family. Hopefully,everyone will get the help they need to start their lives over.
