Tornado Survival Kit

Today we had severe weather. The tornado sirens were going off & Clay got his "treasures" ready for the storm.

The items that were bathroom worthy include: Boots, extra long-sleeved shirt, medicine (in the boot), Bible, toothbrush & toothpaste (direct quote: "I'm not getting caught in a tornado without my toothbrush"), and a Nerf bullet box full of important things. In the box are 2 video cameras, a duck call, money, cell phone, i-pod w/headphones, 3 necklaces, 2 pocket knives, a silly band or two, a weather radio, & the ever important multiplication table card!

Gotta love a young boy's important treasures.....just in case! I love my family!!!

Keep on....

If you're going through hell, keep going. ~Winston Churchill

Sometimes in life we go through things that we wonder how we're going to make it. I often wonder how people make it who do not trust in God. I'm thinking they probably really aren't....making it that is. I know that sometimes life seems more than unbearable. But I know that we are never alone, never forsaken, & never without Jesus praying for us. Now I will be the first to tell doesn't always "feel" like it but regardless of feelings, He is there. He is for us! And when He is for us...NO ONE can be against us. During tough times, we must just keep going, keep enduring, keep keeping on, we will get through it if you're going through hell, for goodness sake, don't stop, don't give up, just.....keep going!

We are pushed hard from all sides. But we are not beaten down. We are bewildered. But that doesn't make us lose hope. Others make us suffer. But God does not desert us. We are knocked down. But we are not knocked out. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 NIRV
