A quick update from the coast . . .

We’re okay.  We went up to my cousin’s on the north side of Houston Wednesday evening and came home yesterday afternoon.  House is perfectly fine, aside from a couple of limbs in the yard.  God is good, all the time.  I have to be honest in saying that part of me fully expected my house to be gone when I returned.  But everything’s okay and God has proven Himself faithful once again.

I’ve decided that while things are pulled out of closets, etc., I’m going to do a thorough housecleaning.  Spring cleaning in September, if you will.  It seems a good time to purge all the stuff that got in my way while I was trying to decide what was truly important to save.

This has also inspired me to get caught up on my photo albums.  I am not exaggerating one bit when I say I took a truck bed full of boxes containing photo albums, loose photos, memorabilia, and negatives to my sister’s house before I went up to my cousin’s.  A truck bed full.  If all those photos and memorabilia had been in albums, it would have been so much easier!

I’m glad to hear those of you also in the Houston area seemed to have fared pretty well.  

Special note to Lori:  Have fun on your mini-cruise and don’t sweat the three pounds, girlie!  The last few days have been stressful for all of us and heaven knows we deserved a little chocolate comfort!

  1. Oh, I am so glad to hear you are all right – and that God has preserved your home, too! Just like the Psalms say, He is our shelter and refuge in the storm – the literal ones, too. I’m so glad He has provided for you in every way!Do take care…and have fun cleaning. 😉
