It’s hard to even know how to pray in a situation such as this because the darned hurricane has to go somewhere and anywhere it goes, there’s going to be devastation and much heartache. But do you see right there where it’s headed?? Houma! That’s where I was 2 weeks ago teaching and those ladies were so nice and sweet and kind and it just breaks my heart to think of the suffering they’re going through even now — the uncertainty of where it’s going to hit and deciding whether to leave, where to go, what to take. Vicky‘s brother is just a tad west of there, my sister is just a tad west of him, my mom, dad, niece and her precious family are just a tad west of there. Bonnie is just a bit west of my family and I think she was leaving out today with her family.
I know it’s within the realm of God’s power to make this thing just disappear off the radar but somehow, that’s not what I’m expecting to happen. Maybe I have a lack of faith! So I’m just praying that wherever it hits, people will be as prepared as they can be and help will be swift in getting to them.
If you’re the praying kind, would you please pray for all in the path of this hurricane?
The ladies in Houma support a local orphanage. The quilts they make are 60″ x 80″ or a bit larger. There are more boys than girls. If Houma takes a direct hit, these ladies may be a bit slow in getting their donation quilts made and the orphanage may have more of a need than ever so if you have any quilts in this size range or if you can make one to send to this guild for their donations, please let me know and as soon as things get back to normal, we can surprise these wonderful quilters with just a little help. The quilt I’m making for the Labor Day Challenge was already designated to go to the Houma ladies for the orphanage but maybe I’ll make a couple more if they take a direct hit.
