Dec 31: Tornado and 10-min Storm!

We were grateful to the Lord for his protection on the last day of the year when a tornado and storm came through our area. The tornado touched down and destroyed houses in Sunset Hills, the area bordering our neighborhood! Our area was out of power for most of Dec 31. We were on retreat however, which made for a very peaceful night and intimate time of community adoration of Jesus at our convent in the candle light :-) The postulants also spent an hour of adoration (11pm-12midnight) and midnight mass with Bishop Hermann at Incarnate Word parish (www.incarnate-word.org). It was great! Power returned as we concluded our retreat on Jan 1. Thanks be to God who gives us everything that is good!
