Hurricane Ike update

UPDATE: Hi friends! We have made it through this massive storm in perfect shape. By the grace of God everyone is safe and we are a part of a lucky few that still have electricity! Things got really bad around 5:00am. It was SUPER scary!! Luckily Josh slept through it all. The house has minor damages like missing shingles and branch debris. Other than that everything is intact! Although we were spared many people have suffered serious loss. Please continue to pray for our fellow Texans. I also want to thank EVERYONE who has left comments and sent emails. Your words mean so MUCH!! I will keep you updated!
Hi loyal readers! I just wanted to stop in and let everyone know that I will not be posting this weekend due to Hurricane Ike. It looks like he is headed right towards us so we are frantically trying to get everything ready. We will ride the storm so please keep us in your prayers. I will resume posts as soon as the storm is gone. Hopefully, we won't be without power for to long. I will keep you updated.
Many hugs,

Oh Ana, I am so worried for you. My family in Sugar Land are not leaving either. They have a generator, plywood to put up and are hoping for the best. I wish they would just get in their vehicle now and go like they did last year. You take care and I will be praying and thinking of you every minute as I am for them.
