We are A-Ok

Last night Chris received several text messages from his optometry friends asking if we were ok due to the storms that hit southwest Missouri.  Yes, we are just fine.  Joplin is about an hour away from us and if it weren't for twitter and a text from my mom, we wouldn't have even switched to the news.  We had some funky looking clouds and a huge double rainbow, but nothing in comparison to the storms that hit up the road on I-44.

I am so thankful that my sweet Christa is safe.  Her due date is tomorrow and while we were praying hard that she would go into labor over the weekend, so thankful that He knew that wasn't the best plan.  Despite the fact that Freeman, where she is set to deliver, was not hit, it is filled with patients from St. John's, the hospital which was destroyed, as well as those injured from the storm.  I am so excited to meet you Littlebit, but can already tell that you are one smart cookie =) 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who are still looking for friends and family, who have lost loved ones, as well as the multitude who have lost their homes and/or work places.  Praying the rain that is in the forecast for the next four days for some reason just goes away or at least around the Joplin area.  The pictures are unreal and the stories make your hair stand on end.
