Tornado Touched Down with winds of 145 mph killing 3 in Brookport, Illinois

It is so wonderful to be back online with you, my family. The last time I talked to you, I ended our conversation by saying, “The Tornado Warning Siren has just been set off.”  That day will definitely be a day to remember. We live in a very sparsely inhabited region. We have tornados touch down all around us. But thankfully for us, only old barns and abandoned buildings were destroyed.  The people in Brookport were not that lucky. Brookport is located right across the river from us. I don’t know if you have ever heard the old myth, a tornado will not cross water. Don’t believe it! I could see the tornado forming in Kentucky and my daddy had always told me that myth about tornadoes. So I figured the tornado was going to double back and that was going to be it. The winds kept building and building. The National Weather service said that the winds had got up to 75 miles an hour before it crossed the river. It was a huge tornado that struck this poor Illinois town. They won’t allow anyone in except for emergency personal and those who are cleaning up. Apparently there is nothing left of the town.

I know on the news they keep mentioning the larger towns in Illinois. Brookport was devastated and nothing but local people are helping. I know the government finally showed up but they are not telling the basic needs of this community. These people have lost everything. I guess because I got to see this monster that was going to demolish this poor town, I feel like this was way to close for comfort. These people need food, clothing, housing, personal items, basically they need everything.

The local news station (which I provided a link to) has a spot on it for donating to the Red Cross to help these people. The people that were hit by this tornado were nothing but good hard working individuals. They had worked for everything they had and now it is gone. If you would like to donate to the Red Cross, where the Red Cross can purchase the necessary items, please use the link below. I know the people of Brookport will appreciate all the help they can get within the next coming months.

Wishing You A Very Blessed Wednesday Morn, Dear Brothers & Sisters!


Good Wednesday Morning, my dear, dear family! Do you know how precious you are to me? I would say I am going to start saying that every day but half of you would run, lol! So maybe once every week or so, how’s that?

This morning I realized how precious everything I have is. How I have been blessed by the Goddess. What I have taken for granted. You might be wondering what made me come to this realization, it was a TV news story. The story shattered my heart. It was about a man who had been out of the country when the Typhon hit the Philippines.  He had no communication with any of his family. He didn’t know if they were dead or alive but he was on a train on his way home. What awaited him, he didn’t know? Thank the Goddess, all his family survived. But they had no place to live they were homeless.  As I watched the tears roll down that man’s face, it hit me. That could easily be me or you or any of us. I live on the New Madrid fault line. I cannot imagine an earthquake destroying everything here and I am trying to get back home to my family. The horror ran through me. Not knowing if my kids were alive, not knowing if my husband was alive, not knowing if I had a place to call home.  What horror!

The Goddess did touch my heart this morning. I experienced all the feeling the man on the train had and I also experienced my searching for my own family. I cried like a baby. Needless to say, it is our time to start taking some responsibility or at least mine. I know one of our foremost missions from the Goddess is to help mankind. The people in the Philippines need our help. They are in a very desperate situation. We must step up. And we are. You will notice the Raffle items this month are expensive items, very expensive items. I did that on purpose to raise money to send to the Red Cross for their relief effort in the Philippines. 75% of all money received will go to the Red Cross for that exact purpose. I have found a very trusted corporation that is directing money specified for that purpose alone. I trust this company or else I wouldn’t be doing this. I wish I could send a 100% of all the money we collect this month but we have to survive ourselves. I hope you will contribute to the Raffle because this month it is for a very worthy cause, life, human life, what could be a greater cause.

This is only the start, I would like for anyone that knows the address of their local food banks, homeless shelter, etc., to send them to us. We are not going to desert our own people. We would never do that. From now on, every Raffle that we have, 75% of the money raised will go to a food bank, a homeless shelter or some other needy and worthy cause you can think of. Perhaps we can start making a difference in this world. And by doing so, we will be helping our fellow man and the Goddess’ children.

Please help by donating to the raffle, I will provide a receipt were I have donated the money to the Red Cross. Also if you have the name and address of any food banks or homeless shelters in your areas, I want them. If you have any ideas or organizations that need help, let us know.

Thank you and May the Goddess Bless You Threefold,

Lady Abyss & The WOTC

Take Time Out of Your Busy Schedule Today

I am sure some of our brothers and sisters were victims of Hurricane Sandy. To see the photos of the destruction this hurricane made, makes me sick. It is horrible to see these people who have lost so much trying to put their lives back together. I saw one poor woman on TV, her house was gone but all she cared about was finding her pictures. She wanted her memories. This terrible storm had even took those away from her. I cannot begin to imagine what the victims of the hurricane must be feeling in its aftermath. To lose, everything, EVERYTHING, it is beyond belief, it’s a nightmare.

I know I moan and groan about this and that. But when I see these people on TV,  I become very humble and grateful. My heart goes out to all of them. If you have a minute today, stop and say a prayer for them. If you can donate to the Red Cross, do that. These people, our brothers and sisters, need our help. They will need it not only today but in the many months to come. Keep them in your thoughts daily. Pray for them. Ask the Goddess to comfort and console them during their time of need.
