Just last week, the high schoolers were eating lunch right there... library straight ahead and secondary building off to the left.

As devastating as the damage to the campus is to us... here are the homes of our neighbors. Tears...

  1. Oh,my heart aches for those people who've lost so much. We had a flood of 3' of water in our home, and I know the heartache that goes with that. Thanks for the pictures. We'll be praying!

    1. Thanks, Cathy ~ we really appreciate everyone's prayers... and that they let us know they are praying.


Stop in for a chat! I love to hear what you have to say ~
