peaceful weather Thanks be unto Him who walks upon the wind, who rides above the storm! There were broken limbs and twigs everywhere, but only one tree uprooted around the property. Thank God there were no damages in the buildings. The water supply was cut off, we had no electricity (but I had prepared for it!) so there was no way to know about what had come of the hurricane, the news and progress. But I guessed that time Gustav was gradually fading and further inland. As of about several days ago, as I said we didn’t have access to the news but I just hoped that nothing is coming over here in Louisiana anymore. Because sometimes when nature strikes, once is not enough. And we are all so thankful that hurricane Ike indeed didn’t harm us, though my heart goes to those affected. We just lost power yesterday for two hours because a big tree fell across the road where the power line is, but it was not as bad as Gustav where we had no electricity for four days. As of now, the once category 4 hurricane has become just a tropical depression, and just right since it has been storming around for a week more or less. Well, some through the water, some through the flood, some through the fire, but all through the blood.. some through great sorrow but God gives a song, in the night season and all the day long. And that was what I have been doing when we were in the dark. And He led me.
