The town of Murfreesboro in Middle TN near Nashville had tornadoes that killed two and damaged lots of homes. The son of a couple in our church had damage to his home.
There is a community not too far from us where a lot of our church folks live that had a tornado touch down that damaged several homes and blew down lots of trees.
The saddest thing --
When I got to school this morning I learned that the town where I teach (I don't teach in the same town I live in) had a horrible storm about 3:30 AM. One of my former students who graduated from high school last fall was asleep in his bed when a tree fell on his house and killed him. He actually was asleep in the basement of his parents' home. He was the neighbor of one of our teachers. He was one of those really good and quiet young boys.
Many homes were damaged and lots of trees were down. My school was without power for a long while this morning. The school down the street was called off. We had about half of our students there this morning. By the time this afternoon rolled around we had about a quarter of them absent.
The storms are not over today. We're in line to have more this evening. The ground is so wet that trees are uprooting. We always have spring storms but this seems worse than usual. I just pray that no more or little more damage is done and that no more lives are taken.
Please pray for the family of this young man whose life was taken.
By the way, many of you offered prayers for my principal. The doctors have no explanation for how well he has done. He wasn't supposed to make it. He was supposed to have surgery after he did make it and after he recuperated enough. The doctors told him the other day that he has no need for the surgery anymore. They don't know why??? It is miraculous is their only answer!! He has visited school a couple of times.
