Today doesn’t seem like the day to talk about hacks, or tips or tricks. Today seems like a day to take my platform, no matter how small, and use it to ask for prayers for Texas.
I am thankful that we are safe. But I’m also worried about my family and friends who are dealing with flooding, tornados and all the crazy that comes with a massive natural disaster.
I have family who had to evacuate to their neighbors two story as of today in order to get away from the flooding in their own home.
The girls dad is with the National Guard and is there helping.
There are so many with needs. It’s awful y’all. I hope you will join me in praying for all those in the affected areas. For those helping rescue. For those who, even if they were able to evacuate, will return to destruction and loss.
If you are looking for a way to help, please review the following information:

Texas Food Bank Help– “Texas food banks are mobilizing as Hurricane Harvey aims for the coast near Corpus Christi. Food banks are an important asset during hurricanes, as they provide relief to families and residents who have lost access to food and water during the disaster. When a disaster is too big for one food bank to handle, such as is anticipated with Harvey, Feeding Texas steps in to coordinate with the state and other providers so that relief comes quick.”
