Today we will monitor the hurricane center's website for Ike every few hours. We may have a better idea of where he will make landfall. I ask you to still pray he will disipate and keep moving quickly to prevent flooding, pray no tornadoes are formed and pray trees do no fall. Trees falling on houses and cars killed a lot of people in 1983 when a hurricane hit our area.
I have most of the things I need on the emergency preparedness list for the days we may not have electricity. We have a gas stove so we can cook without power. I don't think our water supply has ever been contaminated, but I will buy water today. I want to be like a wise virgin and be prepared. My husband bought a generator for my parents, ours is in the garage. I even have a coffee press to make coffee if we lose power, an Annette without coffee is not a pleasant thing!
Let me leave you with these words this morning:
Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me."
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.
But the LORD has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.
