I have friends in the area of the tornadoes that are happening again today/tonight. Frightening stories are coming in via email.
Does it feel as if the bad weather news has been going on forever? My heart aches for all of these people who are suffering, people who have lost homes and possessions, people who have lost loved ones. Lord God, have mercy!
A four year old girl at my church started a collection of small stuffed animals to send to children in Alabama. It started a small thing and has swelled into something big.
A friend in Missouri, an ER doctor, is working like crazy, caring for those who’ve been injured by the storms, including overflow from Joplin.
I encourage friends of Write Thinking to (1) pray for those whose possessions have been blown away by these storms, both figuratively and literally, and (2) give to reputable charities. They’re going to need all the help they can get.
