Been There, Done That, Got the wet T-shirt to prove it!

On April 10, 2008 our house flooded. We moved everything out, dried it out, cleaned it up, did the repairs and moved back in two months later. Recently at our church I gave a testimony about the way God's grace came to us through our church family during that time. It was good to look back and trace His hand.
On May 1, 2009, our house flooded, again! The same God is channeling grace to us and, even though it is hard to trace His hand right now, we choose to trust His heart. Jeremiah 29:11-I'm claiming it.
Front yard about three hours after rain stopped:
Standing in my driveway looking to the east:

Our back yard. That little blue house is on 5ft posts!

Standing in the foyer, looking onto the front porch.

Trusting in Jehovah-jireh now. And coveting the prayers of friends and family.

Oh, Verla, what an encouragement you are. You've faced something most people can't imagine, not once, but twice and in the midst of it all you're bringing glory to Him. I wish I was there to help clean up, but in my absence I am praying for you guys. I hope to be in OK this weekend and I want to squeeze your neck!! I love you!! You are His treasured possession. : )

Wow. I'm sorry about this--frustrating. But it is wonderful to hear that you still trust the Lord to provide, even in uncertain times.

Are you dried out yet?! I would hate to live in a flood area - we have friends at church that their house floods EVERY time it rains a little more than normal...would drive me nuts!!
