Hurricane Isaac is definitely being felt in my home state right now. Starting Tuesday, beaches were already under water, roads were flooding, winds were getting strong, and tides are surging. Friends in neighboring Louisiana and even Alabama are reporting similar conditions.
Please keep praying for us. Wednesday is the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and for most of us in this region, that memory is still very fresh. Many of us lost loved ones or loved places. My dad and his wife completely lost their home as did several other family members. Thankfully, our region learned a lot from Katrina and most of us are taking the situation very seriously. But we still need prayer.
Pray that people will use wisdom. Pray for God's provision. Pray for peace of mind and protection. Even my little Merry asked if she could sleep in the hall so she could be close to us. I assured her that God was always close to her.
And He is.
We aren't promised that life will always be easy. We aren't promised that we'll miss all of the storms. But He does promise us that nothing can separate us from His love.
That's something to cling to right now.
