Prayers for Joplin, MO

I'll have a Suzeday Tuesday post for you later today, but I can't write about pretty things and dream homes without feeling a heavy sadness for those in Joplin who've lost so much.  This tornado hit way too close to home so to speak as Joplin is just to the south of us. I have many friends, including one of my very best friends, from there.  As my friend Lindsay tells me, the town is devastated.  One of her friends found herself hiding under a mattress while her house and cars were blown away.  Her parents' places of business are gone leaving them without jobs.  Every person knows someone who didn't survive. I can't even imagine.  I want to take a moment today to be grateful for the roof over my head, the fact that I still have a home is now a dream for some people.

Please keep the people of Joplin in your prayers and consider a donation to the Red Cross.

  1. Jennifer I am in Kansas City as well and at my other career we are taking up donations as employees have families devastated by this.

  2. It is unreal...so much tragedy and heartbreak. My heart goes out to the people, may God bless them and look out for them as they start the daunting process of rebuilding. We all have to do our part, there is no such thing as a part too small.....every little bit helps.

(i.e. Your Comment: what's up with the Biebs and Selena Gomez? My Reply: I don't know but it's keeping me up at night. He's so cryptic on Instagram, it's hard to really know)
