Tornado Alley

Last Wednesday we had lots of tornadoes in our area. None hit our home I'm thankful. My sister-in-law's house needs a new roof but it looks so much better than the houses around hers. So much devastation. So many people lost homes and loved ones. My nephew lost a really close friend.
We didn't have electricity for 3 days and we have a well so our water ran out after a day and a half. We did put buckets under eaves before the rains came to have water for flushing toilets and boiling for washing dishes. Had some good water saved for drinking. This has made me appreciate running water and electricity a lot more. I'm more conservative with water now.
I can see God's power through this and I think He is saying "Can you hear me now?". He so much deserves our attention and honor and our time. We shouldn't be spending so much time connected on our phones, internet, TV, etc but spend time with God meditating on His word, in prayer and helping each other.
