I don't live near the coast, but some dear folks I care about do. I'm so thankful they came thru the storm that caused so much damage going up the eastern coast. In the central part of the state we had rain Friday and all day yesterday. Such a dreary day! This morning I awoke to sunshine and a beautiful day. Amazing the change in just a few hours. I pray for those that lost so much, I know Franklin Graham and those from the Samaritan's Purse were in Florida as soon as the worst of the storm was over trying to help those that were hit so hard. One video from Fayetteville, NC was so striking. A woman's car was in deep water and she was standing on the seat of the passenger side on the outside of the car hanging on with one hand, and hanging on to a baby and protecting it with her body and the other arm. When help came, they took the child from her and it was the most stirring thing to watch. How scared she must have been, and how relieved to see help arrive. How sad that the rain waters came so quickly and unexpected mass flooding in no time at all. Thank God for those that put their lives on the line to help the ones that were stranded and helpless. God bless those first responders.
