Daddy, does our house float?

So this is the question that Kyndal asked on Sunday. I was regretting watching Evan Almighty with her on Thursday evening, but how could I have known the events of Saturday and Sunday? It is also ironic that I brought the group bible study the previous Sunday and the subject that I chose was storms and we studied much about the great flood.

It is surreal what has happened to middle Tennessee this past weekend! Many of you probably don't even know the devastation that has hit the areas surrounding us, as it has not been spoken about much in the national media. We were very blessed to all have been out of the area on Saturday when the first round and flooding hit, and also very blessed to have gotten back to our house safely before the second round hit on Sunday.

Flooding caused only by rain has caused our rivers to crest higher than they have in 80 years. Beloved landmarks through the city have been destroyed. Homes have been destroyed and people do not have flood insurance. Lives have been lost. I encourage you to read this blog post, which I think says so much: http://www.section303.com/we-are-nashville-4366

I was all set to present a new study this Sunday about God's promise from Genesis chapter 9, but we canceled our group meeting due to the weather. More importantly we were going to study 2 Peter 3:1-17, and I encourage you to read it too and to please keep the people of this area in your prayers!

"But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness" 2 Peter 3:13
