Hello my faithful sisters!

I would like to request prayers on behalf of all those who are in the path of Hurricane Ike. There are many in the Texas area, especially those near the Gulf that will suffer great loss...and prayerfully, that will not include lives.

Please also pray for me, my family and those around us as we are told that Ike will be a tropical storm by the time it reaches our area, with winds up to 35 mph to 45 mph with gusts up to 55 mph. There is also a possibility that we will experience isolated tornadoes and much inland flooding.

I'm off to put water in large coolers, plastic bins, etc. (so we can still go potty, in case of a power outage) and other emergency preparedness gear.

Thank you in advance for your prayers. I will be sure to update you as soon as possible.

May the LORD our God richly bless you for your faithful prayers!

By the way, Twinkies and Ho-Ho's are a necessary part of an Emergency Preparedness Kit, right?
