A Widow Needs Help

storm cloudsTo be quite honest with you, I can’t recall the details of most of the individual days of my life. But I’ll remember Sunday, April 27, 2014, for a long time.

How I stood on our front porch, looked up into the turbulent Arkansas sky and told my husband that things just didn’t feel right.

There had already been waves of pounding rain and strong winds and now there was a sense that our corner of the world was too quiet. The sky was too dark. Something was wrong.

About an hour later we heard the news. A nearby town had been hit by a strong tornado; there had been fatalities.

And the next morning we learned more. A colleague at work, Rob Tittle, and two of his nine children were among those who had died. Their house had been totally destroyed.


What’s ahead for Rob’s wife and seven kids (one is an infant)? They need our help. If you would like to know more, please visit

And if you are asking “Where was God last Sunday night,” read “The Cheerleader.” It’s a story you’ll never forget.

  1. Thanks, Carroll. I did share it on my Facebook page. Like you said, it is heart wrenching and yet God is there. I heard a wonderful devotion earlier this week where the speaker said that sometimes we don’t understand but just have to trust by faith … and he referred to Hebrews 11. ” … by faith, Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. … By an act of faith, Abraham said yes to God’s call to travel to an unknown place, etc.” That was a comfort to me and a reminder that God is in control and that by faith I know He will work this for ultimate good and for His glory.


  2. Mary you should post this on FB….heart wrenching yet glorious story of His love.
