A little over ten years ago, my Dad and family moved to South Carolina to escape the cold Michigan winters. At the time, it seemed foreign to us, but today, we’ve seen how it’s a great place to live. They built a beautiful home on a hill with a view of the mountains. And, Dad has his shop handy to work in every day.
The Mrs. and I decided to make a vacation out of a family visit a several years ago and stayed a few days in Charleston. What a great time that was. The city is ripe with culture and history. Many of our earliest presidents visited and even stayed in a few of the homes down the street from where we stayed. Granted, Charleston was the place of the Civil War’s beginning, but seeing it first hand and hearing the stories of what happened only made my appreciation for our country even greater.
Tonight, much of South, and North, Carolina is under a hurricane warning. The rain that is expected to fall over the next few days is predicted to be catastrophic. I’m thankful my Dad’s home is on a hill far away from the ocean and that he’s very self-sufficient, but I know many of the communities have been built around streams and rivers which are guaranteed to flood. The entire state may experience massive flooding by the looks of the forecast.
Tonight, our hearts and prayers are with all of those caught in the midst of this massive storm. We pray for God’s protection and grace to help those in harm’s way. We pray for the first responders and those who will risk their lives to save others. Most of all, we pray that He might move with His hand to decrease this storm’s intensity and to move it out of the area quickly…
Much love tonight my friends,
