A tornado was spotted a couple of nights ago a little north of where I live. It’s not unusual this time of year—springtime in tornado alley. My NOAA weather radio sounded off as the storm, which included high winds and large hail, moved through the area. When this happens, I pray the storm will go straight down the Red River, which separates Texas from Oklahoma, instead of through populated areas. You can be sure others were praying the storm would stay away from their homes too. But, the tornado didn’t go down the Red River. It crossed the river and hit a little town in southern Oklahoma, killing two people. These deadly storms remind us we live on an untamed, hazardless planet full of dangers. God’s peaceful kingdom is not fully here. But we can be thankful he will never forsake us through whatever dangers we face. Lord, come soon!
