Just heard on the news. Lord have mercy. :'(

WPM, are you and your mom okay?  Please let us know when you get a chance.

Lord have mercy on WPM and his mom and family.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Wesley, it is good that you are safe.

Lord have mercy.

How is your neighborhood and city doing?

Lord, have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Some neighboorhoods were devastated in the area where the tornadoes toucheddown. We should recover, rebuild, and clean-up debris.

Hey! <wave> Yes, we made it through ok.

How did my old hometown of Mineral Wells fare?  There is an old legend that a tornado has never hit there, but I don't know about recently.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Mineral Wells is about 1hour 30 minutes from here connecting to the HWY.

Lord have mercy and God remember the storm survivors.

We also pray for rebuilding, clean-up crews, and emergency personnel.
