Winds pick up,
Sky turns into an unfriendly grey.
Tears well up in the eyes of a child.
With every horrific cry another tear is shed
Teachers fight and struggle to do their best.
But in the end they are left standing in rubble and dust.
Parents and community members fight to stay alive.
As a funnel cloud rips through and devastates their lives.
With many lives loss and many homes destroyed.
God on their side they start to rebuild their dreams.
Some do not understand why this happened to them.
Others understand it is a part of god’s plan.
Mother Nature is an amazing force, and this time she is reminding us
That life is a delicate flower in the spring
and sometimes it rains!
To all affected by the tornadoes you are in our prayers!
