Fellow Pipsters I know it has been a very busy and hopefully happy holiday for all of you.

I ask at this time on behalf of our dear Marge Tindal for prayers,
for the ones who were injured, hospitalized and/or their homes destroyed
in today's tornadoes, which you may have heard ripped through areas of Florida.

Link to news site- http://www.local6.com/news/10606224/detail.html

Marge's brother Tony survived the tornado today but
his mobile home sustained major damage.

Red Cross will be in tomorrow to deal with the losses ...
Tony's park had been slowly rebuilding with the hurricane devastation
two years ago ...now ... all to be done over again.


Marge has asked for prayers for Tony
and those in this area who are without homes
Also prayers are needed for those taken to area hospitals.

Thank you all for your prayers and positive thoughts..
I'm sure Marge will be in with updates as soon as she possibly can.

Just in quickly to thank you all for the prayers for Tony and ALL those who suffered losses~

Tony's home is gone ... the damage can't be repaired as it was after the hurricanes two years ago.

Of course the best news is that he is alive and all the work of replacement and moving on will come in time~

Tony is a 'doer', a helper of others ... when he was able to get out of his home he immediately went to the homes of some of the elderly and disabled friends in the park to help as he could help~

Keep the prayers coming, please ... they sure need them as they begin the process of rebuilding their lives~

Thank you, Nance, for being my ink
at a time that I could barely think, much less write about it~

Titia~
According to the weather service, this is the first F-2 tornado to hit Florida in December since 1982.
Wind speed was 120 MPH~
*sigh* ... it's just always something, isn't it ?

I won't be on much ... but will come back after I have more news to update~

Count your blessings, friends, ... I did and I thank the Lord of my knowing that I still have a brother to count among them~

Bill and I just returned from our second trip out to the area ... we took a generator and gasoline out to my brother, Tony, to supply the elderly neighbors house, where he is staying right now, with much needed electricity~

Will check back tomorrow and keep everyone updated.

Many lost ALL ... ALL ... blown away in less than 45 seconds~
It is so sad to see the little children whose Christmas gifts were blown away ...
it's a sad, sad sight~

Our hearts go out to them all ... we are doing what we can do until Red Cross and other help agencies get in there~

They are greatly appreciative of the prayers, just as I am~

Tomorrow ... thank God ... there IS a tomorrow~

*sigh*
The time is sad, the days are long ... but for those of you who have written and offered your prayers for Tony and those affected by this tragedy, we thank you with all our hearts~

To answer a couple of questions that were emailed to me -

Yes, Tony was in his home at the time the tornado hit ... he had just moved from his dining room table to the living room couch to watch a weather report on the television when, without warning, the tornado slammed into his home ... crashing right through the dining room window and wall where he had been sitting~
(God was keeping the watch over him)

He threw himself, face down, into the couch and held on for dear life ... remarkably he suffered no physical injuries~

S L O W L Y  the wheels move ... and it will take a great deal of time more before anything can be done beyond what has been done so far ... Tony has warmth, food, clothes and is staying with an elderly lady at the park whose home was damaged, but is livable~

He feels the need to stay close to his own property and belongings ... and probably with good reason~

Keep them all in your prayers~
Thank you from our hearts~

Oh Marge~The pictures you sent me tell the story of the devastation.

I am at a loss for words..
except to say that Tony and all those hit by
these storms will remain in my heart and
prayers.

There will be no drowning
