Oklahoma Tornadoes

Some of you may recall my January 15, I think it was, post about Strangers on a Train where I told about my friend falling in love on a train trip through Europe. Well, yesterday, his home was one of the victims of the storm that went through Moore, Ok. I still have no news on the condition of his house itself but thank The Lord that he and his daughters are safe.

I wanted to offer my prayers, condolences and love here on the blog to those affected by this awful storm. Having been through hurricanes, I can empathize somewhat with these folks- I can’t totally grasp the enormity of leaving for work in the morning and coming home to a flattened home but my heart sure does hurt for all of them. The loss of life is devastating and I pray for some comfort for those people in their immense loss. Hug your family today. They are what matters, folks!

    I was not near a TV yesterday and when I was on the internet, the initial news seemed like the damage was severe but few lives were lost. Later I learned that MANY lives were lost and some people still had not been located.
    So sad for a school full of kids to be one of the worst hits.

  3. I have two brothers-in-law untouched in OK, but my sons, the EMT’s and dads , find this very hard to be too far to help. I am glad you told us who the friend was whose house was hit, that it was the man from your romantic story.That story has stayed with me and it brings the tragedy a little closer to home, so to speak. I wish all the best there.

    • I can imagine that they are angsty and want to help. That’s the kind of people who go into that kind of field.

      Yep. It was my pal from the train story- I didn’t want to say that on FB last night. Thanks for the good wishes for them as well as the prayers for them all over in OK.
