Saturday morning somewhere between 3am and 5am Justin awoke to tornado sirens ( I apparently was totally out of it because I am normally the one to wake up and he sleeps through everything.) We turned on the weather channel and stayed tuned until we knew we were out of danger (which was important since we were on the 2nd story of our hotel.) We were then up a couple hours later and excitedly heading towards Nashville. We couldn't wait to get there and have some FUN!
We ended up in Covington, Tennessee and were stalled out because this interstate was our ONLY way out of Tennessee. There was some confusion amongst police officials about whether traffic should be allowed to pass through the 4 ft water. So we were told twice that traffic was not allowed to go through it...then we would get out of the line of traffic...then they traffic go through....this happened twice and then the third time we just stayed in line and then we were able to pass through the water.
Thank God that we are home safe and I am thankful for the peace of going to the Lord during such desperate times and knowing that He will truley carry us through it all. The power of prayer never gets the credit is deserves. I don't know who prayed us, we only called Justin's parents during those heated moments, but I have heard there were many people who prayed us out of Tennessee. Thank you to those who prayed, PRAISE GOD for answered pray.
