Praying for Jackson

Today started with a heavy heart. When I began reading about all the damage that Jackson has suffered because of last night's tornado, it made me want to get in my car and drive there. I immediatly called my grandmother and father to make sure they were OK and the rest of our family had made it through. Of course, the phone lines were down. I started to panic when I read that 2 people in the area that my family lives had been killed. I finally got a hold of my aunt who reassured me that everyone was OK, but there was extensive damage.
I will always call Jackson one of my homes. It makes me sick to think about the people hurt and the damage caused. I hope you will join me in praying for all those who were affected by the storms. Also, that as they begin to re-build (some of them from the ground up) that they will find peace and know that God continues to be with them.
