and it just seemed to be just what you needed to hear at the time? Or gotten something in an email at just the right time? One of my friends sent me just a few words last nite "I know you're worried and maybe scared with Hurricane Frances bearing down on your state but just remember this: Let Go and Let God". And then I just got on here and read my daily issue of Mountain Wings and look at what it said today: Relax and Let Go

Relax and let go.

That’s the “Moment” for today,
a message to simply relax and let go.

~A MountainWings Original that is not truly original
but a word that has been recently echoing in your spirit~

WOW! Without even realizing it I have been so engrossed in trying to prepare for this storm and it was starting to get the best of me. My stomach all tied in knots with each new thing I heard about it. Yesterday it was the woman on the noon news that said "This storm is going to make Charley look like childs play. The worst from him was over in 4 hours. Frances is moving so slow that she's just going to be sitting on top of us and pounding us for 18-24 hours here in Central Florida". Then this morning while getting ready for work and listening for any updates another woman on tv said that "Frances is the size of the state of Texas, if that gives you any idea just HOW LARGE this storm is". Hmmm, I was just hoping to hear that I didn't have to take the lil darlings to school today and could prepare my own home (as much as you can prepare for a storm of this magnitude) but no such luck. All the debris that's still down and stacked around town from Charley will just become deadly projectiles when Frances moves through the area. I wouldn't wish this off on my worst enemy. I hear folks everyday saying how tired they are after work. I think after the last few weeks here it's the Mental Tiredness that's making folks so weary. We'll likely not have power again after this so I'm praying not only for US here in Florida but for anyone else who gets a visit from Frances when she leaves here. As many of you know I live in a mobile home and I went over to stay with my Baby Sister at her apartment when Charley came thru. This time the whole family is gathering at our Older Sisters house. It's not that we'll be any safer there, there's no escaping this storms path but at least we'll all be TOGETHER and that surely means alot to us. Everyone Take Care & God Bless You and I hope to "see" ya'll soon : )

I recieved a card in the mail with just this note inside and i keep it with me always and I'd like to share it with you.
"Good morning,this is God.I will be handling all your problems today.I will not need your help. So have a good day" I will pray for you and Cindi and all the floridians here. God bless and be safe.

DD it isn't fair, but it looks like you folks in Florida are gonna be blessed with another hurricane.
I hope and pray you and yours will be safe. I don't know what you need to do to accomplish that, but whatever it takes, do it.
The same goes for Cindi and Mudcat and all the rest of the Florida gang.
