Go Away, Fay!

As much as I am stoked that we're off work tomorrow, I can't help but get concerned as well. I lived my first 10 years of my life in the Philippines and have gone through several major typhoons (that's what we call hurricanes over there), and I have to be honest, I am a bit traumatized by the howling winds. Something about that sound that just gives me the goosebumps. I can still remember hugging my Grandma's leg and trying to hide when I hear the wind howling, rain beating down on our roof, and the trees swaying back and forth. Creepy.

Although Jacksonville has not been hit directly by a strong Hurricane since we lived here in 1995, I am praying to Jesus for safety. Please keep us in your prayers as well. This has been a really stressful week and the weather is definitely not helping alleviate some things, but I believe in the power of God and prayers. I pray for everyone a safe week and to stay dry :)

It's also good to be prepared ahead of time. We did our Hurricane supplies shopping on Monday and Tuesday. I hope you got to do yours already.

Fay, Fay, Go Away.. Don't Come on Another Day!

Stay safe!
