No flight, tornado & power outage

Yesterday was an interesting day. I WAS supposed to go to Dallas and get on a plane headed to Idaho. . .but Bryan got sick all night Monday night, so I rescheduled my flight for this weekend. I was a little bummed about that. But it was probably for the best because tornado weather hit OKC and NORMAN. Bryan would have most likely got caught in it while trying to drive back from Dallas. . .so I am happy about that. The storm came on fast and furious! As we watched from our porch the winds picked up to extreme speeds, even knocking a motorcycle over in our parking lot. After that happened Bryan moved his motorcycle into our stairwell to keep it safe. The rain was intense and the wind was blowing in a couple different directions. Bryan thought for sure this was tornado weather. We didn't hear the tornado warning sirens so we thought we were safe. However, we lost power to 33,000 people in Norman alone. A friend of ours said the news was saying a tornado touched down on the North end of town (I have yet to confirm that), but I wouldn't be surprised considering several power poles & trees were down along with an entire roof of an apartment complex building was pulled right off!! Our power was out from 8pm to 3am and our friends that had power last night lost power this morning at 9:30am and are still out at 2:30pm. Needless to say Yesterday was interesting. Crazy Oklahoma Weather. Today is it beautiful with blue skies, clear, warm with a light breeze and about 94 degrees. I took advantage of the weather and went down to the pool for a little while :)

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
