Hurricane Ike

After receiving an email with a few pictures, I felt that I needed to document it. This had a special spot in my mom's heart because her High School girlfriend lived in a town called Port Orange, TX. She was in contact with them constantly through the storm and was listening to every advisory that she could. It happened that she did not have flood insurance and Ike was heading straight to her house. It is amazing how God watches out for us. Her house was saved and had no flooding and minor wind damage where basically it has been explained to me like the picture below. The community is gone, the new school, neighbors houses, daughters house but her house stands. Heavenly Father will protect us when we give all power up to him. He is in control.A single home is left standing among debris from Hurricane Ike September 14, 2008 in Gilchrist, Texas. Floodwater's from Hurricane Ike were reportedly as high as eight feet in some areas causing widespread damage across the coast of Texas. (David J. Phillip-Pool/Getty Images)
