Tuscaloosa Tornado damage

Driving home today I took a detour through Tuscaloosa, Alabama so that I could see the tornado damage we’ve heard so much about on the news.

Lord, help us. Lord help Tuscaloosa.

There’s such complete devastation which goes on for miles — a house is safe and sound on one block, and the next block is leveled.

I had a helpless feeling driving through; as if I should do something yet knew there was little I could do personally. But I can continue to pray for them; that’s always a help.
