I haven't written for a few days

I've been spending time with my kids as they had some time off from school due to weather. We've also spent a lot of time in prayer for the flood victims in my state. It seems that the news keeps getting worse and yet I know He is in control. The determination and optimism that I see on the faces of people fighting the flood should be an inspiration to all that see them. Their backs are seemingly against the wall yet they refuse to give up. A city council meeting was opened with prayer; how thankful I am to live in a place where that can be done without fear of someone making a fuss about it.

Apparently the worst is yet to come and yet I know that God will be with us. God doesn't give us a spirit of fear. I'm placing my fears and concerns at His feet knowing that whatever comes, He will walk it through with us.


  1. I am glad to hear from you, I was concerned when you hadnt posted.I am glad you all are safe. My prayers will continue to be with you and your lovely family !

  3. This isn't the kind of record you like to see broken, but as you said, God is in control. Doesn't mean bad things won't happen, but with His grace, some good can come out of everything, even disaster.

    Praying for everyone affected, and that they know His peace.

  4. Cyn, I am so sorry for all that is happening to everyone around you! My heart breaks when I see those precious people on the news just fighting so hard to save their homes. I am praying continuously that the Lord will shelter you all and keep you safe. I know blessings will come from this if we allow Him to work in His way and in His time. I love you!
