phew...what a night!

hey all!! Well it seems like most everywhere, there are severe storms and tornadoes coming through. well we had a really bad storm, possible of producing a tornado last night. our town got the worst of everyone around us. the wind was really bad and the rain. for a while, it looked like a hurricane. oh and HAIL. golf ball sized. yeah, huge. There's hail and wind damage for us and others. There hasn't been any injuries or deaths from it, I don't think. The storm lasted about an hour and half and there was no tornado, thank the Lord! We got out of the bathroom and ventured outside to see the hail, it was pretty neat :) most everyone on the street was outside taking pictures and seeing it! My dad was about 2 hours away in other city, in a training and he got home after the storm had passed. thankfully he didn't get any bad weather! Then....the power went out. for about 2 hours. Candles were light and my whole family and I camped out in the living room for the night. We were all a little bit unsettled and it took a while to get comfortable and to sleep. I turned on Audrey Assad and that was so relaxing :) anyway, it sure was an eventful night! now its overcast and a little dark. There are supposed to be more storms coming :/ But I don't think they are going to be super bad. we will see. I'm so thankful to God for keeping us and everyone else around us safe and protected!
here are some photos from the day/night :)

the clouds looked amazing

the golf ball sized hail!!


the kids thought it was so cool[pun not intended]

it only lasted like 5 mins but tons came down!!

after the rain and wind had died down a lot and we went outside
sweet that you can see her reflection!

i played Math Bingo with my sibs to get them to calm down.

I love taking pictures of raindrops on plants or whatever :)

a little while after the storm had passed, this cloud was so started like this then went across the whole sky


then the sky got really dark, it was getting late but there was storm clouds in there too. it rained just a little but never really stormed again.

 We are supposed to have some rain showers and thunderstorms today and tomorrow but nothing too severe.

I really can't imagine what the people of Joplin and the other places that have been destroyed by tornadoes and such, are going through. how scary. I'm definitely praying for them and I know that He will provide for their needs. I pray for comfort and peace for them. There is hope in Christ and He will never leave us nor forsake us. I'm praising the Lord that He has kept us safe! Please keep Missouri, Oklahoma and the other places in your prayers.

much love♥♥
