Because my aunt is the most dedicated prayer warrior I know, I know she won't mind if I send out this prayer request on the world wide web. Aunt Billie, my Mom's sister, and her husband, our Uncle Elbert are in their seventies. The rest of my mothers siblings are all on the Carolina coast, as well as many of my cousins (two she references below, Micki and Joanne). We have relatives in Maryland, too, and Georgia, and Florida.... Anyway, we're concerned for everyone's safety! Praying today! Going to Mass right now, in fact to send intentions up for everyone in Hurricane Irene's path!
Here's Aunt Billie Jean's E-mail:
The llllllll Community College will open tomorrow at l:00 PM as an emergency shelter; and I'm not sure when the llllllllll County shelters will open, but soon, I'm sure. JoAnn is scheduled to be on duty at one of them. Haven't heard about Micki yet, but expect she, Lola, and Marley will be at the one where JoAnn is, but probably Micki will be on duty at llllllllll Hospital.
Soooo, whenever you have a spare moment...or hour....say a prayer for all of us down here and along the northeast coast....looks like we're in for a bumpy ride!
Love you all...
