Saturday night was a little rough around here. There was a lot of rain, and, around 2:00 we had a pretty big storm. There was a report of a tornado touching down in the south end of the county, luckily there were no deaths. There was a report of a tree falling on the house of an elderly woman...her bedpost stopped the tree from crushing her. I used to be very afraid of storms, but they really don't bother me that much anymore. They still wake me up, but I usually go right back to sleep while it's still rumbling. Believe me, I've said a whole bunch of "Hail Mary's" during storms when I was little! I don't know if the police/fire sirens kept me awake on Sat. night (we don't have tornado sirens here), but I got up and turned on the weather channel. We were under a tornado warning. That's warning, not a watch. We don't get a lot of tornadoes around here (not the weather kind, anyway...the high school my boys attend are the "Tornadoes"!), so when we have a warning, there's reason to take it seriously. I debated whether or not to wake up my husband and go downstairs, but then the warning was lifted. So, he had a night of uninterrupted sleep!
Yesterday was Mass, laundry, and dinner at my parents'. One of my cousins from Tx. and her husband are in visiting friends who live nearby. Every once in a while a cousin will have a reason to be up here, so it's usually a big deal when they're here. Here's a picture I snapped:
Karen over at Still Magnolias had this amazing post yesterday: The Power of the Pencil. It's a copy of her husband's sermon from yesterday. Like I said, it's amazing. When you read it, you can just feel the Spirit guiding him through it. Y'all go have a look!
I'm still looking for opinions on whether to restain or paint our kitchen cabinets, as well as any backsplash ideas:
Have a Marvelous Monday!
