Choose Life

H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

Who would have thought, a week ago, that people who had evacuated to Houston would now be evacuating to New Orleans?  That's what my daughter-in-law did!  Still, watching the news and seeing what Katrina did to Pensacola, I don't think New Orleans is completely out of the woods on this one.  They're still in for some strong winds and rain. 
That, coupled with the evacuation orders complicates the cleanup of the area and the return of people to their homes to assess, reclaim and secure what is left of their property. 
Check out members.cox.net/dirt3 for some photos of Algiers property damage.

We continue to pray for the victims of Katrina and now add to that a prayer that the people of Texas and Louisiana don’t become victims of Rita, as well.  It is mind-numbing to try to grasp the devastation that has occurred and then imagine the potential for even more on a similar scale,  with more than two months to go in this hurricane season.

Truly blessed our those of us who are able to sustain our hope and faith through our relationship with God.  I ask Blessed Mary, our mother, to intercede for us, through her son, Jesus Christ, that God may grant us the strength and courage to continue to be beacons of Christ’s light to those we encounter who are struggling to cope, who are feeling hopelessness and despair, who need someone to help them through the seeming endless darkness that disaster often brings.

May God continue to bless us, and may we bask in the warmth of His love and kindness.
