We are so thankful for Our Lord's Mercy in sparing us from harm last week. We were in the DIRECT PATH of the deadly tornado that ripped across the state of AL on the 27th of April. We were having supper when we heard the tornado was hitting downtown Tuscaloosa. We turned on the television to a horrifying site. You just know people are losing everything when you see a tornado a mile wide ripping right through a city!
It wasn't long before the tornado sirens were sounding and we realized this monster was heading straight for Birmingham. We got in our safest spot under our staircase and prayed our Divine Mercy Novena. Buck is especially terrified of tornadoes!!! He held a small crucifix and prayed his little heart out. We all did! Our Lord is so good to us!! From what I understand, the tornado lifted from the ground for about 8 miles. I can't find the words to tell you how amazing it is that our home is in the middle of that stretch! We are so thankful, humbled, grateful.....
