"The Volunteer State"

Wow!  The last few days have been crazy. It rained 16+ inches in two days.  I cannot imagine what Noah went through building the ark. I think Audrey was about ready to load me up after two days and let me play in the rain.  (kidding)
Fuel Rack Nashville, TN

Please pray for the people of Tennessee. Nashville has been hit hard with flooding and it was very sad today driving around and seeing the areas that were hit. I actually got to experience hands on today the devastation of the flood by helping a guy gut his house. Hearing the stories on TV is nothing compared to getting my hands dirty inside an actual home.  As I worked today I could not help but think of a great song by none other than George Strait:   

I've been to church
I've read the book
I know He's here, but I don't look
near as often as I should
Yeah, I know I should
His fingerprints are everywhere
I'd just slow down to stop and stareopened my eyes and man I swear I saw God today

It did not take a lot to see God today!  Through the random people handing out water and food you could feel God.  Even in this time "His fingerprints are  everywhere".  Please pray for the victims of the flood.  I truly understand why Tennessee is called "the Volunteer State" after the last few days.

  1. It's so sad... :(

    It does give you more of an appreciation for the people of the South, though, doesn't it? I hadn't thought of living up to the title Volunteer State, but you're totally right.

    God is very good, and He's working wonders through you and other people like you. :)
