So sorry it's been so long since I've last posted. There's not really been too much going on here! We did have an awesome revival at church this week. Lots of decisions were made and it was just a great time! Needless to say, it's made for a long week. Monday through Wednesday I don't think we got home before 9:15 any night. Tonight we are just hanging out at home.

I'm sure many of you have heard of the tornado in Mena AR yesterday. My parents were literally caught in the middle of it in their car. They had been in Russellville visiting with us b/c it was my birthday and had just gotten into Mena. They couldn't get shelter fast enough, so they had to take cover in their car. Praise the Lord they came out with just a few minor cuts and bruises. The back windows in the Tahoe blew out from the tornado. It's crazy just looking at pictures from my hometown. The whole downtown area is completely demolished. Prayers for the people of that town would be awesome. Today has been a day of praise, b/c every time I see more pictures of the damage, I just have to stop and thank God that He protected my parents during the storm. My brother was out of town for the day so he was safe. And my (ex) sister in law and neice had some damage to their house but came out safe as well. It's crazy to look at the pictures and wonder how one house could be gone and the one next door to it completely untouched.

Tomorrow we have an Easter egg hunt at church and we're having our neices over to go with us. It should be a ton of fun. The weather is supposed to be nice, so hopefully we'll have a good time.

Happy Easter everyone!
