Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Storm warning in ARKANSAS, near us...

Hello, via Madame Samm..

I asked her to write this for me as we are without power,...we have a generator for our freezer, so
we can keep things frozen for now...The weather here has been terrible, trees down, building ripped
by tornadoes and hail storms. I have a gas stove, so I can cook, so we are doing ok under the conditions..
We likely won't have power till Friday...

Please pray we do not have any more damage.

I will miss you all till I return..
Love Marlene.

here is a link to a video not far from us...

Oh my dear sweet friend, stay safe!! I fear the very same weather is heading in our direction tonight and into tomorrow. Schools are already preparing to release students early tomorrow. I'm just very grateful God has kept you both safe. A little like camping..eh???
Prayers and thoughts of you

Oh Marlene!! I'm so glad you are safe. Take care - there's more coming tonight!

Carol said...

Marlene, I'm so glad you sent a message that you're safe. Continued prayers for all who are in storms' paths!

Why do they call it "Mother Nature"? No mother would ever do anything that scary. I thought of you when news reached Japan. It looks like a whole series of storms working their way east and even to some areas that don't usually get that kind of weather so are probably not as well prepared. Take care. You are in our prayers.

Dear Marlene,
I am so sorry to hear of the devastation all around you. Thank goodness your home was spared. I am so sorry for those who were not so fortunate. My prayers are with you.
I will miss you very much while you are without Internet service. You mean a lot to me. I will be wishing you well.
Take care sweet friend. Hugs, Lura

Praying for your safety. It's been a volitile spring. We drove through some of the devastation here in NC this weekend. Frightening. Be careful!
