We are cleaning up. But torrential rains sent rivers 50 feet above flood stage. The water is receding thanks to several days of hot weather. Volunteers are rushing to devastated areas but more will be needed in the weeks and months ahead as those displaced attempt to rebuild their lives. One woman picked up a toothbrush from a aid center this morning and said that she had not been able to brush her teeth in THREE DAYS! Our brothers and sisters in this world are having to start over from scratch. Please donate, if you are at all able. Pray for those who have lost and for those who are helping. Thank you. God Bless.

We are Nashville

The images of my hometown are heart breaking. People here have lost everything. Homes that were in areas that have never flooded, homeowners never given the opportunity to buy flood insurance. It isnt offered in areas that do not flood. And now they have to start over.

The Delta at the famous Opryland Hotel is under water. There is fountain in there, somewhere...
The Dairy King, been there as long as I can remember. Mill Creek isn't supposed to be there.
We were extremely fortunate; did not experience any water in our home. Other people around me weren't so lucky. Please lift them up your prayers. Please make contributions to the American Red Cross for the victims of the Nashville Flood. From what I have heard, we have not had much attention in the national media. But this is a huge disaster here in Middle Tennessee. The need is immediate.
My images here on this blog are just a few of what is out there. If interested please search for them. I will try to post some more when available. Thank you.
