Well, as promised, I have a few pics of my fall decor, but I must be brief, as today is a day during which other preparation must be done and with which other things must be dealt. Not only do we look back at the devastation that 9/11 brought, we now have a pending visit from Hurricane Ike. They are saying it will be a Category 3 or 4 and it is at the present time, coming right toward us, as in right over my town! We will not be evacuating, as I am sure the roads will get very congested from those evacuating from the south of us. The main concern for us is not the flooding, but the winds and our beautiful pecan trees that lose limbs easily anyway. We will board up some windows,move any loose items from the yard, and continue to watch the storm. Please pray for those along the Texas/La. coastline.
So here are a couple of pics of my fall decor; yesterday and the day before were more carefree and I could think of brighter, cooler days ahead. Today is not quite as carefree, but is rooted and grounded in the fact that God is sovereign and will watch over us through the storm. Remember he calmed the storm? Well, He is the one who calms us through the storm, whether the storm is calmed or not.....that must be the paramount thought for this day.
