Happy Labor Day

|
I had originally scheduled a post for Labor Day wishing everyone a happy and joyful Labor Day Weekend. As I've sat and watched coverage this evening of Hurricane Gustav, though, I just didn't feel I could leave this cheerful, happy, playful little post up while so many along the Gulf Coast would be experiencing something completely different. While I do still want for all to have a happy and enjoyable Labor Day Holiday, the reality for so many in our country is a day of fear and uncertainty in the days ahead. Please join me today and this week in praying for all those who live along the Gulf Coast. Let us pray for their safety and for their weeks to come as they sort through potential loss of homes and jobs that could happen if this hurricane hits with the force that is expected. Additionally, let us all also pray for the many personnel that have been sent that way to assist in providing protection during the storm and in providing provisions to meet needs in the days following.

Yes Melanie, I agree, let us all pray for those along the Gulf Coast. What a day this will be for them.

Yes...many of our dear blogging friends are in this path and I have been thinking about them and praying for their safety today. Thanks for reminding us that as we "rest" in our homes on this Labor Day that many are fleeing their homes for safety!

Blessings, Laurie

Definitely praying for them... and others who are in the midst of floods and everything else. Having the flood here this summer has really opened my eyes to the devastation natural disasters cause. I still tear up when I drive through down town (or the neighborhoods close to it) where houses and buildings are bordered up and trash is still piled on the sides of the road etc.
