Please pray for our city, for the families of those that have lost people, and for those that are searching for a new normal as they find shelter, replace vehicles, and repair damage.

After the Flood
I'll be back to regular blogging in the future, but I thought I would pop in to say hello and that we survived the flood in the middle Tennessee area. While our home is fine, certain areas of the small suburb of Nashville I live in sustained much damage, as well as West Nashville where my parents are located. By a true miracle, while they were trapped in their home for over 48 hours, their house stayed dry and had power while homes not even a mile from them were slowly filling with water. The devastation here seems surreal - especially when you start thinking of the many that are without homes and those that are temporarily unemployed due to the floodwaters. The Opryland Hotel alone employs thousands - right now it has about 10 feet of water standing in it, and by last estimation will be closed for several months while work is done to repair damage.
