Just To Let You Know...


Dear Ones,
I so appreciate all your messages and concern for my family and me. We left the island yesterday morning with my Mother and Chloe Dawn. We've driven for nine hours and we're out of harm's way. Thank you so much for your prayers, we know God is good and He is in full control. We are praying for friends who have chosen to stay and our homes and the island and surrounding areas.
My heart just melted and tears ran down my face as I read of all your love and concern for me! How precious you are and I truly love you all! I just wanted to let you know we're okay and will be watching the weather to see what happens and when we can come back.
Thank you again, my dear friends and hopefully will be back to blogging soon.
Be sweeties til I get back,
Shelia :)

  3. Oh, I am so glad you got out of there, I was sure you would leave. My parents left last night at 8:00 p.m. and didn't get here until about 6:00 a.m. this morning. What was normally about a 6 hour drive took them 10! They were exhausted. I'll be praying that your home is safe and I am so glad your family, mother and Chloe Dawn are safe and out of harms way. While watching this storm my heart is just sinking for the Galveston area. I am just so worried.

  8. Oh Sheila, I am glad you are in a safe place and you and your family are in my thoughts and even your beautiful home as well...do you remember that I told you I got chills the first time I saw that pic of your home, it's just so grand and stately and you have made it into a lovely home and I hope everything will go back to 'normal' very, very soon.

    Take good care,
    Bella

  14. Oh dear Shelia -
    My heart has been so heavy for you and those who live nearby all day today. It is SO good to hear from you and to know that you are safe and out of the way. We are praying much that God will keep you and many others wrapped in His arms. And praying that your home and so many others will be spared. God is good - all the time!

    Shelia, I live in the Tampa Bay area of FL and have had to evacuate for hurricanes too many times during my lifetime. The older I get, the more apprehensive I become during each hurricane season. Needless to say, I completely understand the fear, dread and worry that must be churning in the pit of your stomach, wondering what will happen to your home. My thoughts are with you and your family. I pray that when you are able to return, you will find your home unscathed from Ike's fury.

  29. Shelia, I'm so happy to know that you got out of there in time. I hope that you will be able to return home soon.
    Big kisses to Chloe Dawn, Bridget
