As I write, according to the latest news, Ike is pounding the Gulf Coast near Houston. I have a friend that lives near there, and evacuated with her family, inland last Thursday evening. God willing, they are safe and out of harms way, but I haven't heard, yet. For those of us not in the path of Ike, before we fall to sleep this night, say a prayer for all the people that are. I can only imagine how scary it would be to have to leave your home with only the bare essentials, not really knowing what you will come back to, if anything... God Bless!
