In the devastation of the tornadoes in Alabama is my brother and his wife. I heard from his daughter, my niece, that a tornado hit 600 yards from their house. There was a tree across their driveway, someone's roof in their backyard, and debris everywhere. They had no power, water, or telephone.
First I was grateful that they are OK. Then I started to consider the fact that they are both in poor health, a day in that situation could be more than either of them could physically or emotionally take. I asked my niece for an update, via facebook.
Her latest update said they ate lunch, and at which restaurant (seriously?), and that they have a game plan. No details about whether they are staying in the house or whether they have power, water, and telephone back. I hope I will find out soon.
I am so worried about my beloved older brother and his wife. My sister-in-law since 1967.
I know there are others in much worse situations and I am praying for them. But I can't help but be worried about my brother.
Prayers are appreciated.
Thank you and God bless you.
