Hurricane Preparations…Can you ever really be prepared?
I will be the first to say that I LOVE living in Southern Louisiana, despite the “poor uneducated reputation” we all acquired due to a nationwide stereotype of Cajuns. One of the down sides of living in southern Louisiana is the dreaded hurricane season; the Gulf Of Mexico is right in our backyard. Seven years ago we battled and survived Katrina, but not without a huge price being paid. We are currently in the direct path of Tropical Storm Isaac, which is scheduled to turn into a strong Category 2 storm by the time it reaches us. My family and I will ride it out at home. Our house is boarded up, we are well stocked and we have a generator ready to go in the case of power loss. I will attempt to get some good pics and add them later.
On the bright side, I did pick these beautiful flowers while securing the shutters today. It adds a little cheer to the incoming gloom.
Please keep us all in your prayers.
Prayer to Avert Storms and Hurricanes
Father, all the elements of nature obey your command. Calm the storms and hurricanes that threaten us and turns our fear of Your power into praise of Your goodness. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen!
