The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

Reality Setting In
Preparations are continuing in earnest. I think reality has hit everyone today, it does look like we will be hit by this storm. My is son headed up north, along with thousands of others, there are mandatory evacuations just south of us and it is clogging our roadways. You have to go through a tunnel or over a bridge to go anywhere in this area so.....backups have already begun, it's going to be a long evening for young son.
Husband worked until dark taking umbrellas down, securing anything that could become a flying projectile. We have more to do outside tomorrow, husband will be off work early to finish up. Meals for the next couple of days will be whatever is left in the fridge, omelets for dinner tonight, probably ice cream for breakfast, you get the picture. We are planning for power outages, the last hurricane we lost power for four days, friends were without power for up to two weeks.
We had an offer to go up north to stay with friends, but they are in the path as well so we declined for now. Looks to be a busy morning tomorrow, pray that we have an opportunity to do all that needs to get done. This storm looks to be worse than anything we have experienced before. Praying for protection for all those that will be effected.
Lord you have assigned me my portion and my cup, you have made my lot secure. Psalm 16:5
I have set the Lord always before me, because he is at my right hand I will not be shaken Psalm 16:8
