Urgent Prayer Request

My good friend Michelle and her family need your prayers!  Her mother's home was destroyed today by the tornadoes that swept through the Murfreesboro area this afternoon.  They are all ok, but I know how they feel it is so scary and heartbreaking.  I don't have any other details, but as far as I know, all of my friends and family there are safe.  

(UPDATE:  I received a text from my cousin and their neighborhood was hit hard, but they were lucky and their house was ok.  Please pray for their neighbors as they start to clean up.)

We also had some bad weather this afternoon.  This is what it looked like in my backyard when it was all over.  I have never seen hail that large!  It was golfball sized when it was coming down. (please excuse my dead potted plants!  I was planning on working on that today before the nasty weather!)

I heard about that and I'm praying for all those affected. My co-worker is from Murfreesboro and her family and friends live there, and luckily everyone is fine and no damage done!!!

Oh, my goodness, that is huge hail for our area! We are in Florida righht now but my dad said our house was okay.

Two people were killed in Murphreesboro right down the street from my SIL's brother. So scary and sad.

Hope your friend is okay!

Oh no! I will keep them in my prayers.

We live about 15 miles south of Murfreesboro (near Shelbyville). Thank goodness we only had a few trees and limbs down. All of my friends and coworkers that I have talked to have been alright.

Glad you'll are alright also.

Amanda, Thanks so much for this sweet prayer request. I am just now getting time to catch up on all my blog reading.

You are so sweet to post that. Prayers sure worked. They were so close to much worse danger. It is really bad, but everyone was ok in my Mom;s house.

Love ya girl, and thanks again.
