So I have to say that the blessing is really working in my life. As I looked out the window, I saw leaves here and there but nothing that signaled a hurricane or what Irene was downgraded to a "tropical storm"- just regular rain! There were people talking about "Hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your husband, Hurricane Irene is coming for everybody"!!!
I was totally oblivious to how other people were affected. As I am walking to the train station this morning, this is what I saw literally one block over from my house!
Thank God for your continued protection.
