Here’s a Christian version of the Simon and Garfunkel song, Bridge Over Troubled Water I had in my drafts folder. Thanks Stu, for sharing a recent art tribute on social media of a herd of sheep forming into a heart) It was beautiful.💜
I guess it’s as good a time as any to share this song from my little corner of the South and for those who recently got pelted by Hurricane Ida.
We’ve had tornado watches and warnings since yesterday. Rain and wind, more so in southern Louisiana.
Last night around 8 pm, feeder bands developed and was looking suspicious for developing tornadoes. The sirens went off in town, right before they canceled the tornado warning! Gave people quite the scare!
Then this morning we were awakened at 3:40 am by the Emergency National Weather Service warning going off on my phone. A tornado warning was in effect until 4:30 am.
So I got up out of bed and prayed a while until I felt peace and went back to bed.
Thats about as bad as the winds and rain got for us here, except sometime after 7 am this morning when I woke up.
Nowhere near as bad as Hurricane Katrina was on its anniversary yesterday, right here in our home town.
As of now, my youngest daughter doesn’t have power in her apartment, but they are staying in a hotel at the moment. My oldest daughter doesn’t have power either. Both are safe, as well as my grandkids. 🙌🏼
This was a category 4 before it hit land near New Orleans. It has since downgraded to a tropical storm here! 🙌🏼
We need to keep Louisiana in our prayers, concerning the flash flooding and power outages. New Orleans. Mandeville. Lafitte. Lake Charles. Lake Pontchartrain. And others. 15 inches of rain in some areas!😳😱
The whole city of New Orleans is without power and almost half the state of Louisiana right now. At least one person has lost their life. So sad! And most the hospitals over there are still feeling the strain from the recent covid cases and death tolls.
I pray God comforts their hearts during this time, gives them peace and hope in the midst of it all.
“For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; Yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear: Because thou shalt forget thy misery, And remember it as waters that pass away:
And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; Thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; Yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.”
