The Flood

Yesterday it started raining. And raining and raining and raining. And it is still raining here.

Today I re-read that story of the flood in Genesis... just to be sure that God did actually say He would never flood the earth again. Because from the looks of it in Nashville, I was starting to get worried.

Nashville is under water and in a state of emergency. It's terrible. People who have lived here for 50+ years have never seen anything like it. Thousands of homes are destroyed. People are stranded. Highways and roads that we drive on every single day have 6+ feet of standing water on them. Schools are cancelled. And now the town next to us {Franklin, TN} has a curfew because of the critical situation. It's heartbreaking to watch.

We live just South of Nashville and have experienced TONS of rain and tornado warnings, but we are safe. No flooding on our street. We still have power, water, TV/internet and food... just a little stir-craziness from a very active one year old!

Thank you, Lord. We are truly blessed.
