One month later.

Yesterday marked one month since the tornado.  I have been completely awestruck as I've watched the numbers on my blog soar into the millions since posting "The Cheerleader".  I can't even begin to compile the life change stories we've heard. Words have failed me when I've tried to describe the depth and power of God's love in this situation. And words don't often fail me.

For those who have asked, Daniel and April are recovering at an incredible pace.  Daniel is amazingly strong and getting around very well. April is still in a wheelchair but healing and as beautiful and strong as ever. They remain a beacon of hope in a storm, reflecting Jesus to millions of people.

Thank you all for the outpouring of love. Please continue to lift the Smith family in prayer. And be ready. Their story is far from over.
