There are no words that I can use to express my heartbrokenness over Monday’s tragic storms. Some of my husband’s co-workers braved the weather to take the following pictures from their office building, which was in the direct path. By God’s Grace, the storm turned right, narrowly missing them. Unfortunately, thousands are now without homes, hundreds are injured and some have lost loved ones, including 7 children at Plaza Towers Elementary School.
Here are the pictures from my husband’s office building near Moore.
Again, here is how you can help the victims in Moore, OK.
P.S. Happy Birthday to my amazing husband!
As many of you know… Moore, Oklahoma was hit by a devastating EF-5 tornado yesterday afternoon. Moore is about 25 miles southeast of our home. We are fine, but that OKC suburb needs your prayers and assistance.
Here’s how you can help…
The Vintage Pearl, which is an amazing jewelry/gift store based in Tulsa, is selling these hand-stamped necklaces to benefit the victims.

The tragedy in Moore has kind of overshadowed the dramatic tornadoes that hit a couple different areas just about 24 hours earlier.
This storm went just north of us through Edmond and hit the town of Carney hard. A second storm leveled a mobile home park about 45 miles east of here in Shawnee. It was a really rough couple days of storms.
Last night, my friends/neighbors released several luminaries to remember those killed in yesterday’s storm. It was a beautiful sight watching those heat filled balloons drift off into the night sky.
We thought the weather was going to get bad again today, but this storm only produced golf ball sized hail and strong winds.
It’s pretty and sunny right now in the Metro, but more severe weather is expected this weekend. Please keep Oklahoma in your prayers. It’s going to take a long time to recover from this unbelievable event.
