IN MY LIFE:

Most of you have likely heard by now about the deadly tornado that struck NASHVILLE overnight. I woke up on my Carnival cruise to a barrage of texts and messages asking if me and my family were OK.

Once I was able to figure out what had actually happened, and then took a while for me to reach my husband and kids back home, but thankfully everyone was safe. We live on the south end of Nashville and most of the damage hit East Nashville and Germantown pretty hard.

In my head, I knew there was nothing I could do, but immediately the sadness and guilt set in. Why should I be going to a beach and having fun when my family and friends are home dealing with this disaster? I spent a lot of time by myself in the ocean, but when I emerged, all I could do was cry.

While blogging can be a lonely field. I was reminded today of the community that has been built up around me. Not only was I hugged, I was prayed over by a circle of women in the middle of 7 mile Beach. I was offered water, tissues, medicine, and even gummy bears. While Blogging can be a lonely field. I was reminded today of the community that has been built up around me. Not only was I hugged, I was prayed over by a circle of women in the middle of 7 mile Beach. I was offered water, tissues, medicine, and even gummy bears. These women knew that even though we were in the middle of one of the most beautiful places on earth, all I wanted to do was be home with my family.

While many people see blogging as self-centered, self indulgent, or competitive, my online community once again proved to be anything but that. While I cannot wait to get back to my family and my community at home, I will never forget this community of women that has loved me so well today.

PRAYER FOCUS: Community
I pray you are lifted up by your community, either in person or from a distance, the way I was I mine today.
