Why It Doesn't Matter

Yesterday was Super Tuesday. I think. I'm not really sure because I was too busy watching the weather channel. Yep, 70 degrees in February with a cold front coming through, means tornados and other fun stuff.

Due to incredible technology, we watched each part of our state get ravaged by these storms, while headed straight for us. Memphis was hit pretty bad. Jackson- right between Memphis and Nashville- had major problems, involving a college dorm collapsing and 16 students trapped. And, it was coming our way.

And, I was at work. Away from my family.

Storms usually don't bother me. But, for some reason, this one did. Maybe it was the hail. Maybe it was the fact that I had to wait it out in the men's restroom, with my co-workers. Maybe it was not being with Justin and Maddie.

I made it home safely. Justin was waiting up for me. We talked about the crazy weather and watched the news for a little while. I asked him about the election, because he is a political junkie. He said he didn't really know. He was too busy watching the weather.

You know what that tells me?

If God wants to take out your state, He will. No matter who may be running the country.

I don't know where you live, but storms like that in Texas make your bootie cheeks tighten up real good.
That is how we weed out all the bad folks, we chase em out with lightening storms and tornadoes.
Texas has that kind of power, that is why all of our signs say "Don't mess with Texas"!

What you said is so true, it's scary.

This morning when I heard about the weather I immediately wondered if any of my bloggy friends were in the middle of it. I'm glad you are okay.

AMEN!! It is amazing to see God's mighty power in something we take for granted...the weather.

Oh storms scare the be-jeebus out of me!! We have a tornado come through our back yard one night, pick up our tree house and throw it to the other side. So scary!
Glad to hear that you and your family are fine!

Wow, I'm glad you guys are safe. I went to college in NC and lived through a couple of tornados. Thems were some scary times!

BTW, I added you to my reader a while ago, but for some reason it wasn't updating. I fixed it, but sorry for the lack of comments!

I'm so glad you're OK! My sister was in Memphis that night and she made it back too, safe & sound thank goodness. So many others didn't... it really knocks us over the head with some perspective huh?

Cheers as we do some Weekend Bloghopping!
