In Florida when the weather is the news we all pay attention. The past few days, most of the regular programing has been interrupted by tornado watches or warnings. It took a long time for me to know the difference. Maybe living in Florida is the reason.
I'm praying for the family of the mother who held her child clutched in her arms so tight during the high winds that destroyed her mobile home. After the storm her home was reduced to rubble. Friends and family found 32 year old Heather Town some 200 feet from her home in a near-by woods. Heather was pronounced dead at the scene by responding EMS workers. Her three year old daughter was still in her arms. The child received injuries, including broken ribs, but is alive because of her mothers valiant act of bravery.
Many of us have been praying for rain due to the drought. My grandmother used to tell me, "be careful what you pray for."
I'm praying this morning for Heather's family.
Heather Town, you are a hero to me. Be safe in God's arms.
