My dear friend, Ann, from Hootin' Anni's has a prayer request. Her friend PJ and her husband John were directly in the path of Hurricane Ike. Anni received an email from PJ and this is what she had to say:
"We heard we can park on hwy and walk in from there (about 2 miles) entrance only with our IDs so that is the plan tomorrow. I have seen some photos but none of our specific house, after seeing those photos it may be just was [as?] well. The debris is mind boggling! I just keep telling myself...it's only stuff...it's only stuff. I'll check in when I can, a couple of my coworkers have power now so can use the computer there and one has even offered a room for us and our cats so we can be close to work on our home until it is safe to be there. I have to tell you, it blows me away that we really got hit this time. I suppose it will sink in when I am cleaning up the dead fish and chasing out the damn snakes from my little house. I just never really believed it would happen, you know?"
After requesting prayer, Anni had this to say about her friend, PJ:
Today, she and her husband will drop off her cats at a friend's house and then the two will go farther down to their exit and walk into the subdivision. I ask that you take this graphic [click on it to open in a new window -then save & add to your blog], pass it on for a continual circle of prayer and strength -with your prayers that they have a home and find that there is not much damage.
So, please take the graphic at the beginning of this portion of the post and prayer for PJ and John. They are certainly facing one of the most difficult times in their lives. ~Blessings, Mary~
