A Spring Day

I wish you could see the front page of The Dallas Morning News.  There is an Incredible photo of one of the 12+ tornadoes which dashed through here yesterday.  One went over head on Centerville Road, which is at the end of our block, and Larry's office is also on this road about a mile further down.  We are blessed to have escaped harm.  Our hearts are with those who are recovering and cleaning up.

I was at work at the Hope Center in Plano, close to one of the hot spots. We made a couple of trips to the stairwell.  Though we were protected, we were a little restless with no windows to see the black sky or what might be coming our way.
Lindsay and Brent live on the edge of Ft. Worth, near Arlington.  Brent was at work on the campus of University of TX at Arlington, and spent some time in a stairwell there.  Lindsay, at home, had some heavy rain.  She was her father's meteorologist, as Larry was unaware of the tornado headed his way until she texted him.  

Aimee, who grew up in an area with frequent tornadoes, was a calming presence at her office.  Piper was in lock down in the boys bathroom at school and not at all happy about it.

On the news this morning, they said this was the worst episode we have had since 1979.  I well remember that one, because I was four months pregnant with my son, standing with coworkers in the underground parking garage of our building.  We fared well, but others were not so fortunate

He Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you, nor give you up nor leave you without support.  I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down , or relax my hold you!  Assuredly not!
Hebrews 13:5b  Amplified


  1. Could that have been May 3, 1979 in the DFS&L garage? Huh? Signed: One of the "coworkers".

  2. That is way too close a call - to be only a block away from a tornado!
