Prayers for our friends...

Just pausing for a moment to ask for continued prayers for all our families, friends and fellow Americans being affected by this horrible "act of nature" called IKE!!



I know sometimes we become complacent with all the media and hype going on 24/7...but folks this one is serious. As all hurricanes are...but this one seems to not only have built up strength in the Gulf...but the swath is so vast and the projected surges that lead and follow this hurricane are of great concern.

I just pulled this picture up off the Internet of a rescue in High Plains, TX earlier today! All this to say...this is actually before the hurricane landfall...so with this kind of surge happening before...I can't imagine how bad it will get the closer the hurricane gets to landfall...the effects could be much worse after it hits with all the projected surges that follow a storm of this size.

I know there are many prayerful folks out here in blog land...so I am asking for continued prayers for all our friends...with prayer and with God...miracles happen!



Blessings to all...and God's mercies on all His creations.

I'm praying HARD. It's such a frightening time for sooo many. We're experiencing high winds and our beach is taking a beating again, but NOTHING compared to so many others.

Hugs!

This is so hard, I know, when you actually KNOW the people involved. My prayers are with the families and their safety, and the recovery it will take to get over this. God, has created such a wonderful world, full of such mystery. I wonder why hurricanes are necessary...same for tornados. I plan to ask Him one day.

My son lives near Houston and thank goodness, they are fine as of 8PM Saturday night. I will keep everyone in my prayers.

Tee sweetie, I learned long ago to take nothing in nature for granted! Even the most mundane wind can cause irreparable damage...of course our prayers go out for everyone. Hope you came through this without a scratch
