The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Too Close for Comfort. . .

The weather on the Prairie can be quite frightening during the months of March ~ to~ October!
Last night was. . .Too Close for Comfort. . .
a tornado struck just West and three miles North of our home!!!

"Mr. Ed" and I watched most of the evening while the weatherman kept interrupting with updates as the storms approached from Oklahoma! Around 8:30 pm., we begin to make arrangements to do some TV viewing in the lower level living room On Crooked Creek!

Where "Mr. Ed" and I had entertained guests for an after dinner dessert and fellowship just last Saturday. . .this spot became our safe haven while we waited out the storm raging above us!

This is an aerial view of the destruction to our North. Fortunately for us, we didn't sustain any damage.

Even with the rain and wind, not even a chair was overturned on our deck. Strangely enough, the water was sucked out of the concrete birdbath!

A daylight view of some of the intense damage @ Spirit Aerosystems. . .where our son is employed as a designing engineer. He and others have the next two days off due to power outages.

On Crooked Creek our night was spent in prayers. . . 
We came up from the lower level living room. . . safe and grateful that we, our loved ones and friends had been spared from the storm! The only thing left to do was to go to Worship this morning!!!

Until next time. . .
