Hurricane Update

By JLP | September 22, 2005

I have this ominous feeling that we are about to lose EVERYTHING! Well, not everything, but at least our house and everything else that we can’t pack up. This is some serious stuff (I really want to cuss right now but don’t want to offend my readers). Rita has taken a major turn and is now expected to make landfall about 30 – 40 miles to the west of my house.

I’m trusting God, but I have the feeling that He is not going to answer my prayers the way I want Him to.

My family and I will most likely be leaving today. I’m at least taking my computer with me and will try to log on when I can. I’ll also try to take some “before” and “after” pictures.

Gotta run. Take care everyone. Hopefully, we will have a home to come back to.

    Looks like you trusted in God and your prayers were answered the way you wanted (if your more recent post is any indication.)

    I found the right passage. Matthew 17:20, “For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” (Revised Standard Version of the Bible)

    […] AllThingsFinancial started on blogger and he recently (last September) moved all his content over but he’s been at this for at least a year (when we ran into each other). If you look into his archives and poke your head into September, you’ll read about his Hurricane Rita experience. First is the calm before the storm, tracking the monstrosity, a quick departure, a few days of silence, followed by a story of the evacuation experience, some photos, more stories of being displaced, returning home and surveying the damage, getting electricity restored (but no internet!), and finally the conclusion with the “I’m Back” post.
