Franklin Graham writes on his Facebook page:
When Jerel Wade turned on the weather on Easter Sunday morning he saw that a deadly twister—one of many that struck across the South—was headed straight to his parents’ Soso, Miss. home. He texted them and they immediately took cover in their bathroom.
When Robert and Judy Wade emerged, they stepped out into wholesale destruction. A massive tree lay against the house, the roof had collapsed into the kitchen, and the refrigerator had vanished.
Amazingly, the pound cake Judy Wade had baked earlier that morning was still sitting perfectly intact on the kitchen counter under a glass cover.
Jerel said, “‘I’ve seen His hand of mercy, I hear his voice of cheer. And, just the time I need Him, He’s always near.’ This Easter hymn has come to life. My parents were home during this storm. Their house was completely destroyed. But, their lives and Mama’s pound cake were spared.”
Some 30 people were killed in storms Easter weekend. Pray for all those who are grieving and those trying to pick up the pieces. No matter what kind of storm you are going through in life, God loves you and will be there to help you through it if you’ll just ask Him.
At least 30 people were killed in those tornadoes and dozens of homes were destroyed, but that pound cake is proof of God’s motherfucking mercy. Or something.
Did you hear about the Easter Sunday pound cake that survived a tornado? 1/2 https://t.co/vWj0paPjNE
