The day we will never forget

 Sunday May, 22 2011.  This day is the day the EF-5 tornado touched down in our hometown, Joplin, MO. Its one of those days that I can equate to 9/11 in the sense that we will remember many details of that day and where we were when tragedy struck.

This Sunday I was supposed to be heading to my cousins graduation. I would have been coming home about the time it hit in Joplin. Thank God I did not end up going. We also visited the Wal- Mart and a few other stores that day that now no longer exist. It is truly surreal. Like a nightmare that you still don't believe no matter how many times you see it.

We have driven by the damage over and over and over and every time its exhausting.  So many people without a home, a car, or a single belonging. The tornado was a few blocks from our home two different times and managed to completely miss us. We were immensely blessed this day. I am realizing as each day goes on how blessed we truly are right now.

The outpouring of help has been amazing so many volunteers and communities ready and willing to help at any second.

God made us capable of craving so that we’d have an unquenchable desire for more of Him, and Him alone. Nothing changes until we make the choice to redirect our misguided cravings to the only One capable of satisfying them.

So I heard about the free Ebook Craving God for today, and I really wanted to check it out. I don't have a kindle but I was able to go to Amazon to get the kindle for PC app.  It is really awesome it downloaded super quick so I can now start reading it anytime on  my computer. Very cool way to get free books even without a kindle. Plus its perfect timing this book is a great great inspiration for me right now as I am just restarting my diet.
