Prayers For Texas

Hi all, 
I'm just checking in. 
I want to let you know that we are fine. We are 400 miles from the Texas coast. 

The beautiful, Texas coast that is being hammered by Harvey. 

So we are sending our thoughts and prayers to those in the path of the hurricane. 
The rain from this event is supposed to be catastrophic.

Flooding is an acute danger once the winds die down. 
Be safe, Texans! 
Thanks for joining me in prayer.

Update: The storm has finally moved out of our area, away from the coast of Texas and Louisiana.
It is horrific.
Please consider how you might help.


  1. That is horrible what some are going through that live on the coast. Prayers for everyone. Glad you are safe Katie.

  2. We drove by a construction site on HWY 75 just north of Dallas yesterday. Got chocked up when I saw all the equipment and trucks, etc. were being lined up in a convoy headed south. Must've been 20 vehicles and haulers staged to go! Texas really knows how to take care of their own and lend help to others. I salute our wonderful state. Walmart trucks already loaded with water and food and headed down.

  3. I'm glad you are far from the danger but every news bulletin makes me worried for those in the area. Sending prayers to all.

  4. Glad to hear you are safe. We try to keep up to date with CNN. My heart goes out to everyone affected by this terrible weather event. Good luck Texas.

  5. Thanks for your prayers! I live in the Houston area and it is not good - flooding everywhere!Those getting water in their house definitely need prayers as this is expected to continue for the next few days!

  6. Its so hard to watch and not get in the car to go help. Glad to hear that you are safe though....

  7. I am with you in prayer Katie! We have both friends and family members near the Texas coast. They know our doors here at Storybook Cottage are open to them. We are specifically praying that the levees hold.

  8. Katie,
    Thanks for sharing a heartfelt message about Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. I am also with you in prayer, Katie.


  9. Texas is the most beautiful place of this world and many people want to go there but these days they want the need to be better.

  10. This is a nice and informative article about Texas, it helped me a lot. However there are also many sites which may give also informative information.
