Happy Birthday Jeremy, and a HUGE prayer request

I want to wish Jeremy a Happy 29th B'day. He is such a wonderful husband to me, and a fabulous Daddy to Jackson, and we both love you so much. Happy Birthday!!!

In other news, please be in prayer for the city of Prattville, AL. There were about 200 homes and businesses hit by a tornado yesterday afternnon, and the city is a wreck. The tornado struck my parents neighborhood, and by the grace of God, their home was fine. Mom, Dad, Kellyn, and Jason were all there, and they were all okay. I was at home with Jackson and got a phone call from Mom and all she said was, "Get in the closet now!!" and then she hung up. I was terrified. I just kept thinking that if something happens to them, my entire family (outside of Jeremy and Jackson) were together and that I could lose them all. Luckily, everyone in the neighborhood was okay other than some minor cuts and scrapes. The damage is so close to their house, and my parents say that I won't even recognize the area. You can't tell me that God doesn't work miracles. 200 homes damaged or destroyed, and no lives lost. Some of our friends from church, Leslie and Mike, and their three year old son, Noah lost their home. Leslie is pregnant, and due in July, so please remember them in your prayers. They were able to salvage some stuff from their house, but the home is destroyed. Their next door neighboors roof is literally sitting in their pool right now. Please lift everyone up in your prayers, and thank God that no one was hurt. I will be heading to Mom and Dad's house after Jackson's appt. today.

Once again, Happy Birthday Jeremy. He is such a wonderful guy that he is using his day off to help clean up some of the mess from the tornadoes. Jeremy, you are amazing, and I love you. Happy Birthday!

I heard about the tornados yesterday. I can't believe the damage I've seen on the news. If the church is doing anything for the Whaleys please let me know. I'd like to help out as much as we can! It is a blessing that your family is ok. I'll keep everyone in my prayers!

You all have been in our thoughts and prayers since we heard about the weather yesterday. We have tried to get in touch with someone at Glynwood but all the phones were busy. I am so thankful that you and your family are safe! It breaks my heart to hear about Leslie and her family. Were they in the home when it was hit?? Is everyone else from Glynwood alright? Please keep me updated!!
