We hope Ike gets the message from the boards that we are not open to hospitality. We'd like him to leave promptly without knocking any big objects into our home, thankyouverymuch. We have six pecan trees and two oaks, along with all the neighbors pecan trees (this neighborhood used to be a pecan orchard!). We hope that Ike's posse (the 80 mile an hour winds--those bullies) will cruise through our neighborhood and find it boring and no place to hang around. We wouldn't even mind a drive by...as long as they leave the premises as quickly as possible. We'd love him to also take any rains, and tornadoes along with him, and just go dry up somewhere. Until the storm is over, I'm hoping you can find some inspiration to pray for the entire Gulf Coast of La. and Texas. There's a lot of damage from Ike already and it hasn't even hit land yet. Take care and God bless. He is, after all, much bigger than Ike and HE can calm the storm, whether it's the physical storm we face or the emotional one we experience by having to make it thru the next 12 hours.
