Feel-Good Friday

The tornadoes which decimated Missouri, Tennessee, and Kentucky did unknown amounts of damage and injuries, a literal miracle occurred in Hopkins County, Kentucky.

Two babies survived a tornado in Kentucky that ripped the bathtub they were sheltering in out of the ground and tossed it with them inside, their grandmother said.

Clara Lutz told WFIE-TV that she put 15-month-old Kaden and 3-month-old Dallas in the bathtub on Dec. 10 with a blanket, a pillow, and a Bible. Then the house in Hopkins County started shaking. “Next thing I knew, the tub had lifted and it was out of my hands,” Lutz said. “I couldn’t hold on. I just—oh my God.”

Moments later, The Lord intervened.

Two sheriff’s deputies and two community members were out in the wreckage. The bathtub was then found in her yard, upside down, with the babies underneath.

“I just heard the sound of crying or screaming coming from a distance,” said Deputy Troy Blue. Two men lifted the bathtub, while Deputy Trent Arnold and another man pulled the babies from the tub.

There is nothing more to say than “God is good.”
