As I write this, I’ve just finished reading a text from my mom that says, “Where is the best place in the house to go in the event of a tornado?” She’s not just curious, she sent that text because she’s riding out Hurricane Isaac in our home in South Louisiana.
I’ve spoken with many of my friends and family, and so far they are okay, but the storm could possibly linger till Friday, so they’ve got a long way to go, still. This storm is much different than Hurricane Katrina in that it is a lot slower moving. Sure, it may be “just” a Category 1 hurricane, but I’d rather have a Category 4 hurricane for less than 24 hours, than a Category 1 hurricane for 72 hours. Get my point?
Much of South Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and parts of Florida are gripped in fear right now as Hurricane Isaac is reeking havoc upon them. At a moment like this, I cannot help but think of the very first Scripture verse that my mom taught me when I was just 3 years old: Psalm 56:3, “What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee.”
Please pray for those in the path of the storm, particularly my family and Karri’s family.
Thanks So Much,
