So I promised my next few posts would be about my trip to the panhandle.



Well, little did I know that this would happen:

No those aren't SHINY floors, freshly waxed! 
Those are WET, FLOODED floors under inches of water!
If you click on it you can see it better!


Good thing I already had this up as a REMINDER:



In situations like this.  We need perspective and I choose to think about the fact that:

Here is a trailer that helps with perspective:

and that my life will SOON be back in order.  Where many others lives won't.

So, needless to say I am not sure when I will be posting again because, oh yeah I forgot to mention I AM GOING OUT OF TOWN for a week to CIY:MOVE

Can't wait! ...but hate to leave hubby to this madness!


But God's timing is perfect! 
...and HE knows TP and I don't handle crisis in the same way 
...and maybe it is better that I am 9 hours away because homeowner's insurance doesn't cover 
marriage counseling ;)

Ok, poor attempt at humor here, but laugh for me anyway: He is literally bringing you through waters that will squelch the fire and kindle. Hee hee. Bah-doom-crash

I love that you turned lemons into lemon-AID, so to speak. ..or should I say, water into water-aid?

Hope things dry quickly!

GOD has a way of reminding us that we are blessed beyond measure even if our sofa is in the garage and our spare bed is overcome with excess junk we think we need to store...not speaking about your house, but mine! My house and my heart! Powerfully, GOD speaks through this post to me. I have some cleaning to do in the garage of my heart!
Hugs,
andrea
