No posts for awhile

I appreciate everyone who visits my blog!!  If you are a faithful reader, you may have noticed that I have not posted in a couple of weeks.  The first week, I was on vacation and had a wonderful time with family!  This week, we are dealing with the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene here in the Schoharie Valley.

My family is safe.  All of our church family  and our friends are safe.  We do not know of any loss of life in our valley but the destruction is unbelievable!!   Many in the area have lost their homes and some have lost everything but their lives.   

We had 15 people in our house for a few days with 2 of those days without power.  But GOD IS GOOD and we were all fine.  We had a real scare when we got a false report of the dam breaking.  We all got out of the house in less than 2 minutes! 

Our church is a total loss.  There was 6' of water in our auditorium.  That would be more than halfway up the upper windows that you can see behind the power line. 


Soooo, crafting does not seem quite as important right now.  If you know the Lord, I would appreciate your prayer.  My husband is the pastor and really needs wisdom for the days ahead. 
Thank you!!
Debbie
