Sunday Devotions-

Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. Psalm 91:3-6

In case you weren't watching the weather this week, (ha) there were some big and crazy storms running through Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. Luckily our little corner of Kansas was safe but my thoughts and prayers are with those who've been affected by the storms. Especially Joplin, MO.

This was a view of Kansas City earlier in the week.
Wow! What an amazing yet terrifying sight.

Even though the storms passed us by, for the most part, that doesn't mean we weren't preparing ourselves for the possibility of a tornado. My boys were doing so well to help me prepare our basement. They hauled down the emergency kit along with special toys and blankies and plenty of snacks and plenty of water. When I thought we were all prepared Yap came rushing up "for books" he said. "What kind of books?" I asked a bit harshly. The last thing I needed was to get hit in the side of the head with Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows in the middle of a tornado. That's a mighty heavy book!

"Mom, we need our Bible." he replied seriously. Okay, I felt about an inch tall at that point. Of course we needed our Bible.

But in the worst of the weather, which wasn't so bad as other parts of the country, I turned to Psalm 91 for comfort. When my mind was full of potential danger, destruction and injury I was reminded "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge". God will protect us if only we have faith in him.

Thank You for protecting me and my family God. Thank You for the peace You bestowed upon me in a time of anxiety. Amen.


  1. Amen! I saw that picture on FB earlier this week. WOW!

    Listening to the Indy 500, just about 20 laps to go so the radio guys are getting a bit excited. Only in Indiana. We were supposed to be at Turkey Run today, but with .7 inches of rain yesterday on top of all the rain we have had this week, I opted out. The girls need to have a bit more solid footing, in my opinion, for their first adventure there. Dang old moms! ;-)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I'm just over here catching up. I love your Sunday posts! Those storms are amazing. I love your earlier storm photos too- beautiful. I'm stuck:)

    1. Thanks so much Kasse. I enjoy writing them but sometimes I get stuck too. Hope inspiration hits you soon :)


I'd love to hear what you have to say! I try to reply to every one of them.
