Florida's Foreverly Shores
WHEW !!!! JUST GOT OUR POWER BACK UP !!
The good news is that the ones I love are all safe, as are Bill and I~
Bill and I, with my brother staying with us, lost power at the peak of the hurricane in our area at 10 p.m. Friday evening.
A twister layed down some old majestic Oaks just down the street from us, taking out a major power line. Then just around the other corner another major line down when trees toppled.
Our actual damage here at our home was minimal ... not counting the loss of food items from the extended power outage.
My daughter, Tracie, wasn't as fortunate, as a tree fell on her car causing extensive damage ... but ... SHE IS SAFE~ THAT is what counts~
Son Robert and wife Dana in Tampa .... just fine and dandy, as the storm really didn't touch them.
Son David and wife Kim and darling grandgirls,Delaney and Landry, went through a rough part of the storm ... large tree down on their Volleyball Court .... some minor shingle damage .... but ... THEY ARE SAFE~
They are still without power at their home, so have taken retreat at Kim's parents home~
Son Steven and wife got some rough blow with a tornado ... but besides the tree damage and some minor pool damage ... they are also ALL FINE !!!
My step-father and step-mother and all my 'other' family are just fine ... some of them still 'powerless' ... but safe~
Thank you ALL for keeping us in prayerful thought .... we thank HIM for the blessings of keeping us safe~
Our prayers are with the families that lost loved ones in this vicious storm ... also praying that another does not hit us~
~*When the heart grieves over what it has lost,
the spirit rejoices over what it has left.
