Checking In

I'm sure you have heard by now about the crazy flooding that has taken place in Houston.  I wanted to let you all know that we are fine.  We were blessed and did not have any flooding near our home.  Thank God.

However, there are quite a few families in Houston that live near the bayous and were not as fortunate.  My heart goes out to them as they clean up the mess and make repairs to their homes.

Our weather forecast shows rain for the next several days.  Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that the worst of the flooding is behind us.

My heart is heavy for the people of Wimberley, TX.  Wimberley is a small town with a population of 2,700.  We were fortunate to visit there last October for a wedding.  I did a post on it here.  The Blanco River rose 26 feet in an hour and flowed like a wall of water through the town destroying homes and taking lives.  They are still in a search and rescue mode for twelve people.  One family had gathered together to celebrate the holiday weekend and their home was washed off of the pilings and taken down the river.   My prayers go out to their loved ones and hope they will be found soon.

In Devine, Texas a beautiful girl, Alyssa Ramirez, was traveling home from her prom when her car was swept away.  She was 18 years old.  Alyssa had been crowned Homecoming Queen that very night.  She was only two miles from her home.  My prayers go out to her parents.

I want to give a shout out to the Texas Association of First Responders for doing a great job in ensuring the safety and well being of our great city.  Thank you!!!

Take care,
