and last but not least, on a more serious note, Joy at Simply Joy Catering. Those of you who live in our hometown know of the crisis that Joy and her family suffered Friday with the tornado. For others who may not know. Our town had a sever storm, and tornado's touched down in several areas all over our county. Several families suffered a great deal of loss of property. Several areas were hit hard and homes were damaged. I know Richard was out until 3:00 am working with the Ben Lomand Telephone and Caney Fork Electric to help restore power, phone to the victims. He was back up at 5:30 am and he worked until 11:30 am when all the repairs were completed.
Today as we leave our comfortable beds, and walk out the door of our warm and dry homes, please keep Joy's family, and all the other victims in your prayers. Ladies this is a great opportunity for us to show our Christ like attitude and help lift up someone in need. If only you say a prayer in the days ahead, God will always be listening. The word of God teaches us that "the fervent prayers of a righteous man availith much." So please where ever you are today stop and say a prayer for all of the victims and their families who are suffering.
There was no loss of life, God is good. Peace and love to all!!!

Dear Shelia,

Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments about our loss. We are going through alot of emotions right now and with our christian family at church and our wonderful christian friends, we know we can make it through it.

We have had people to come in and help with the clean up inside and out. We are just overwhelmed. I do know one thing that God had and still has a plan for me and my family. We are just so blessed that he spared John Ryan, Dillon, and Katie's lives. John Ryan is a very lucky boy. He realizes that life is short and he knows that without God he wouldn't be here today!

Please keep praying for us and God has enabled me to keep my business rolling and it did not effect my kitchen not any of my catering items. I will be back to work this Friday and need to keep busy and help keep some of these extra bills paid.

Only Through Him,
Joy Tubb

Thank you for the gentle reminding that all of us aren't always so fortunate. I will pray for those that suffered losses in the storm. A few years ago we had a storm touch down here about 4 miles from our home....we saw first hand the terrible wreckage after the storm. Mother nature can br frightening at times.
Hugs, DebraK
