  {Hurricane Ike}

So Ike has come and gone, and Texas will never be the same. The scary thing about this is that my sister, BIL, and daughter were just in Galveston a few weeks ago, in the very place that now sits as a pile of rubble and wood. It brings tears to my eyes to see. This is the place we used to vacation as kids, even now as adults. Our favorite restaurants, boutiques, and hotels...Gone.

Houston is flooded, people are dead, and there is nothing but devastation all around us. There is breaks on the TV from the news every few minutes, updating us on the status of the Search and Rescue.

Thank you Lord that we were spared. It did not hit Austin as they predicted. We got lots of wind, but that's about it. No severe damage! I could not be more thankful. Lagan's school has been used as a shelter to those who have come from the coast. They expect people to be there for the next few weeks.
I feel so helpless. I wish there was more I could do to help.

I ask for everyone to pray for these people. They have nothing to go home to. Their hopes and dreams are washed away in a massive flood...a flood that created this:
