The shirt on my back

I was just thinking about what it feels like to literally only own the "shirt on my back." When we ecavuated Galveston I didn't pack many clothes. I really only expected to be gone a few days. So now I find myself cycling through the three pairs of clothing I own. Thankfully Briana has graciously let us use her washer/dryer and that has been a great blessing. I feel like we didn't have a lot of warning for this hurricane. It kind of caught me off guard and, to be honest, I didn't think it would hit. Thank goodness for the church and for the preparations we had already made months in advance. Now I feel like I'm rambling but there is so much on my mind. I'm having trouble sleeping at night thinking about all our friend's houses that have been destroyed. If anything though, my testimony has grown stronger knowing that we have a loving Heavenly Father who knows our situations and will take care of us.

Gone for Ike

So we're here at Jason and Briana's trying to outrun Hurricane Ike. I just wanted to let everyone know that we are out of harms way. We are enjoying our "vacation" but are also nervous about my family who are going to ride out the storm in Beaumont. Take care all, especially all our friends living in Galveston. (Hopefully you aren't still there!)
