So this weeks Now to WOW's theme is Faith.  I really didn't know what to do for this at first....  My husband is a church decorator (Here is his website, I help cut and design the stencils) so I do have some wonderful pictures of insides of churches!!!  But, they weren't new pictures and I didn't want something so literal.
This weekend there was some CRAZY weather. 9 tornadoes touched down and we drove one hour in down pouring rain and head hurting lightening.  Although we were in a tornado warning we didn't have any touch down or any damage done around our home or town.  Unfortunately some towns were destroyed in western Iowa near where I got my first job.
Sunday the sun was out and it was so warm!!! Than another small storm came up so quickly we didn't know what hit.  I got some great shots after the rain had moved through to the east and the sun was shining in the west. (Although they need to be cropped)  Sometimes you just have to have Faith that you will be safe and everything will pass......


  1. Great shots! I love the barn in that last one!

  2. i'm with cedar the barn in the last shot is AWESOME! great job :-D cool business too :-D

  4. Oh how scary! I heard Iowa got some pretty bad storms and I hate to hear some damage was done! Ill keep them in my prayers! Glad you all were safe!

  5. Yep, the last one rocks! Of course, I have a thing for barns. Especially red ones.
