I want to thank everyone for your prayers and comments you've been leaving on here and FB...The pics are of Trenton, GA where Tim grew up and we both have alot of family that live there....We lived there for the first 9 years of our marriage....WE have been in contact with Tim's brother and dad today....It is beyond words and my heart breaks for them....But sooooooooo thankful for our families while so saddened by the fatalities....It is such a small community....

I've been trying to get ahold of Tim's Aunt Louise, but have been unable to....I shared her home a few posts back with you...I pray all is safe on that side of the family!!!

We are fine!!..We're 5 hrs away and in contact with family....We also had family affected in Rossville GA, Ringgold Georgia, Cartersville, GA....etc.

So please continue prayers...The sun is shining here and all storms have passed...We got some bad ones around 5 am this morning....

THANK YOU Linda (Behind My Red Door blog) for calling and checking on me...So thankful for my blog and FB friends!!!

Hugs to all of you!!!...Jen

We went through an F5 in 1985 right down from our house, that killed our best friend. To see the devastation in person is indescribable. To know your family is unharmed, brings joy amid the sadness.

So glad to hear your okay and I pray you hear from the rest of your family. I pray every night that all this ends soon. My hubby and I have been stranded in our home for four days now due to flooding.

Praying that the storms stop...

Jen, I was so relieved to get your e-mail. Oh my, hasn't this been a day of never-ending storms, but we have so much to be thankful for tonight!! We were spared any destructive weather but it was bouncing all around us. I pray that all of your family will be ok and will find the strength to pick up the pieces and carry on. Life is so precious and can change in just a moment.
Get some rest tonight...will keep you all in my prayers.

So glad the storms have seem to die down & you are all safe. Hope you can get in touch with Tim's aunt soon, have faith, the lines are just probably down. All the pictures brought back such sad memories for me. It will be the 27th anniversary for my tornado on May 2. I thank God every year on that day that we all made it....so sad for all the lives lost in these storms. My thoughts are still with you. ~Kriss~
