Life Changing Events

Since I have last written, I have seen so many pictures from the hurricane Ike and what it did to pretty much all of the lands that we know. My home town is basically gone, and the beach we were thinking of buying a house on, well, all but one house is gone, along with most of the beach. Everything I read and hear makes me heartsick. I have no idea how this will turn out. People will continue to rebuild and do everything they can do. This really brings the fact that lives can change in an instant. There are site set up to donate to the cities on the Gulf coast and Bridge City areas. If nothing else , prayer is what everyone really needs. They need God's grace to get through this mess. I wish I could make things better, or at least go back to the way they were pre Ike. But I can't do any of that so I will do what I can for those I know and some I don't know. I hope this is the last storm for the year. Winter is coming and I am worried about these people, especially the one who have nowhere to go. The elderly and the young. I pray that God will look kindly on them and have mercy.

New adventures in our travels

Well, it's been awhile. Hmm... where do I begin? We have been to Florida, Illinois and now Tennessee. We got to go home for about a week between jobs and got a new truck and an RV. Now no more motels for long term stays. I got the pleasure of driving this big ol' thing up from Texas, and it was an interesting ride. Then we got to the campground and Sue (one of the owners) helped me to back it into a slot, or whatever that slip is that we are in. Anyway, I actually did it and didn't even run over a toe or hit a tree or anything! I love it when things go just right, don't you?
We are enjoying the campground and have met some nice folks along the way. I will take my camera next time we go, I forgot it when we went to Jonesboro, but I'll go back. Well I'm off to the next adventure. I'll be writing more later.
