Our church opened their doors and feed and housed people during this time. It was a blessing to be there and help these families out and it made me so grateful to have a safe home to sleep at night. Many unbelievers were brought into the family during this time and God showed us how he can always take something bad and turn it into HIS good. And if this storm packs the same punch like they are saying...we already have a plan in place to do it all over again.
I wanted to share with you a couple of pictures from the 2007 Ice Storm...for all of you who live here this will bring back the memories of complete silence in your neighbor...how dark it was in this town with no electricity...and I will never forget the sounds of the tree branches snapping all over our neighborhood and crashing to the ground. It was eerie!!
This was our street..notice the power lines and trees.
Here is a picture of our backyard...this poor tree. What's funny is I had been telling Matt we need to trim our trees...and so God just took care of it for us!! LOL
Again..hoping and praying for NONE of this again...but this time we are ready!! If you need a place to stay...call the church...I have room for a few. :)
