Hurricane Gustav update

Who would have thought that I would be chatting via the web cam with my sister, Diane, while they are waiting out Hurricane Gustav! I spent the morning chatting with her, my niece Dayna, her husband Rob and would you believe they are housing another family too? Their best friends have a newborn baby, Caroline and a toddler, Morgan. My sister scanned the room where everyone was at and I got to see my niece, who is expecting her little Gracie in January, holding the baby. It was precious. Dayna gets to practice what it will be like having a new born baby. They are having a party, looking so happy and calm while this awful hurricane was hitting only 150 miles from where they are at my niece's house. The eye was headed towards my sister's home town, so I am so glad she evacuated. We did get to talk but had a lot of static and ended up typing what we had to say. I just wanted to share her happy face, even though she is a little nervous, but we know that God has his mighty hand over them and will protect them. Rob will be taking videos of the storm. Keep praying for their safety and also my brother-in-law, who stayed behind to work at the prison.
