Pretty moving stories. After my week in NOLA in November, with a side trip to Bay St. Louis to help survey the damage there to my brother-in-law's place there, it makes me weep for the people of the region.

I'm glad your aunt and uncle made it out OK. Their story is multiplied a thousandfold.

One of the families our congregation took in from Harvey has returned home. This Sunday several of their relations who have remained here in Lawton came to the services with a basket of goodies Albert and Myrtrice had sent to me and my family for Christmas: Café Du Monde beignet mix, Community Coffee & Chicory (reg. and decaf), dirty rice mixes, etoufee mixes, and chocolates.  I can't wait for a warm evening to sit outside and drink coffee & chicory, snack on beignets, and listen to Harry Connick, Jr.

Check out a funny site dedicated to the absurdity and satire nature of saying “It’s All George Bush’s Fault!"


I hope that you don't think this is spam. I really do think that you'd appreciate a site like this since we share the same idealogy. Hopefully you like it enough to blogroll

Thank God for His provision! I'm from the South and the lion's share of my friends from South MS and NOLA with any resources whatsoever, even just being able-bodied, relocated -- one family to Santa Fe, NM, another to Colorado, and two other families to here in Alabama. Those who are left seem to be the poorest of the poor, those who weren't left with vehicles, relatives, even being able-bodied and able to work somewhere.
