Please Pray for Texas
My Heart is Heavy.
Not only is my adoptive state of 38 years in trouble, the region I call home, Houston, is in real trouble.
The Padilly’s are alright ~ Harvey spared us. Our personal losses were two 75′ pine trees. Spindly, ugly things that were already slated to come down. In unison, they fell side-by-side in our pasture. Damaging nothing but themselves.
But the same can’t be said of the region I call home. Like most of you, I could do nothing but watch what was playing out on television. Feeling helpless as scenes unfolded on the streets I have traveled many times before.
Two days ago it became really personal. A section of the city I called home for 31 years, quickly began to flood; catching everyone off-guard. Still, all I could do is watch.
The sun finally came out yesterday. The waters are receding. I’m able to pull myself away from the television. I don’t have to just watch anymore.
There is a lot of work ahead. Please keep Texas in your thoughts and prayers.
America, Texas needs you.
