As we wait....

As we wait for our lives to go back to normal it is so hard to depend on others. At the moment we are at Mr. and Mrs. Sellers home in Missouri City, which is an hour southwest of where we live. It is amazing though to look around this suburb of Houston and see that it is up and running with normal opertions, while other cities still suffer without power. Most everything is up in running here. I arrived here on Wednesday, I dropped all my things off and went on a mad hunt for a laundrymat. I was not the only one with the idea either. There were TONS of people there. I waited my turn to wash, and my turn to dry. The process was a 3-4 hour process. The children were helpful!(Praise the Lord) The poor baby was so tired though! Laundry was washed. 

I walked back into Mrs. Sellers- and was not here 10 minutes and her power was back on. Noah and I were doing "the praise the Lord dance". If you have never done the Praise the Lord dance you ought to try it! It makes you feel so good! 

So she has power- which has made communication much easier. My family has been frantic trying to get a hold of me. Cellular service is suffering here. Of course- No power means, no phone, and no internet.

I have looked online for our estimated time for us to have power- they are saying Oct 5th- Can you believe it? We are to stay away from our home till Oct 5th- I just can not do it. I can not stay away, and live that long away from my own things! But I must praise HIM for a  place to come to, and for the fact we still have a place to go home to. Many here lost there homes- I will upload photos of the devistation so you can see!

I pray all is well with you!


  1. I am so sorry that you all still are without power but I'm thankful you are somewhere that does have power!


  2. Thank you Angie for the update, we are shocked to see the photos of all the damage. Praise God you all are okay. I'm glad you can be where you have aircon and means of communication. I"ll talk to you soon!

    love and blessings to all!

  3. So glad you were able to get to a home with power with the baby. I can't imagine not having milk or mac and cheese during those days my kids were little! You take care. You are in my prayers.
    Love, Annette

  4. I have been thinking about you guys. Glad to know you are safe and have power where you are!
