March 31 was one crazy day for those of us in Tampa. We had been told very early by our Meteorologist that a nasty storm would be heading our way. It is so erie how they can tell you almost the exact minute that a storm is going to hit your area. So the morning started as we watched the news and tracked the storm. Tori is 45 minutes away and we talked on the phone as the storm passed her school. She was standing with other students in front of a huge window watching it. “This is the scariest storm I have ever seen Mom! You should see the trees bending.” Nice. Right as I heard Mr. Weatherman announce that the storm should be hitting Tampa with in the next few minutes I heard the howling of the winds. As I ran in the bathroom to throw pillows into the tub just in case we needed them I was sending out prayers of protection for all my babies at school and Maurice at work. I can not stand to be apart during situations like this. The hubster called telling me a funnel was spotted nearby and we should get to the bathroom. I got to Tres room, hauled him out of bed and put him in the tub. Once it seemed to calm down I pulled Tres out of the tub and placed him in his wheelchair for breakfast. Right as I placed his plate on his tray we heard the tornado sirens. Whisking him out of his chair we headed for the bathroom again. Way too much strenuous activity within a few hours. Later as we watched the news we seen the pictures of the damage that was caused by the storm. Pictured above is poor Tres sitting in the bathtub he visited a little to much that morning.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
