Rain, rain go away, some places are going through another flood and will be another week of rain. I was almost out the door to leave for church Sunday night when the Tornado warning came, I did not leave. The storm did by pass Springfield, at 7:40 pm. I saw this light in my West window, I looked out and the sun was shining low in the West, it set at 8:45 pm and the dark sky overhead turned a dirty orange color. I had never ever seen anything like that. My heart goes out to all in the tornado at Joplin and other places. I was relieved to hear it had missed Douglas County and other places.
I received phone calls from Opal Carter, Florence, Kentucky, Sister Alice, Iowa and sister Geneva, Oregon, to see if I was okay. They had heard Springfield was in line.
Sunday was a good day until the storm late evening. Lots of new folks in church for the second service, Pastor Don’s message from Psalm 91: “When we are under His wings” we will find safety.
Clifton Andrews will be home Monday, from Fort Louis, Washington for two weeks leave with Dave and Cathy and Grandma.
I will be happy when we can have the sunshine again, this Monday here in Springfield it is one storm going over after another.
How do I get under His wings? To ask, there is room for you.
