Three Legitimate Fears

Three legitimate fears

1. Tornado's and thunder storms. I was in a tornado once as a child. I was out girl scout camping and can remember walking to the bathrooms that were outside of the cabin where we were staying when the tornado sirens started going off. I panicked. The camp ranger called to tell us to go into the basement for safety. I can remember sitting in the basement of this old rickety farmhouse, water pouring down the walls cuddling with my mom who was luckily one of the chaperones on this trip. I will never forget the sound of the wind roaring past the house. The utter devestation outside after it was all over. The small town that had a lot of damage. Those memories are burned into my mind forever. So much so that for the longest time after anytime it stormed I would go sit in my basement. Now we live in Fl where they are no basements and I still hate storms. I prefer not to drive in them and if I know that it is going to storm I will stay home. I have the safest place mapped out in the house to seek cover if there ever is a tornado. And hopefully if we encounter one I can stay calm for you kids

2. A Natural Disaster. I cannot watch movies such as 2012, Deep Impact, or anything having to do with a zombie apocalypse. Because I stay up all night freaking out about them. What if that were to happen. What would I do, where would I go? After watching  these movies I sit up all night, waking up your dad to ask such questions and having nightmares about such instances. And in truth we live in a scary world. A world where people in other countries want to hurt us, a world where shootings occur at movie theaters, malls, schools, and bombs go off at marathons. I want to be able to protect yall from all of these things and the fact of the matter is that I can't. And that is my biggest fear of all

3. The end of the world. Now I know as a christian I should not fear the end of the world. After all I fully believe Christ died for my sins and that I will be saved. Still the end of the world scares me for I am not sure how it will happen. And every time someone predicts the end of the world I get terrified. I want to live a long life with my family. Spend it with my kids and grand kids. So hopefully the end of the world is years and years away!


  1. Natural Disasters scare me to death!

  2. I am petrified of tornadoes. I have never seen one in real life and I hope to keep it that way even though I am going to Oklahoma in 3 weeks. I hope there will be none!
