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.
