This has been a very special week. The 2016 Olympics in Rio has been so exciting to watch seeing the Americas bring home all the Gold medals and seeing our athletics break so many records. I am so happy to take my mind away from the politics of the world, to being proud of our athletics and their accomplishments. Also my cousin got married this weekend and it was the most beautiful wedding I have been to. The amazing thing is that they had a special bond since the eighth grade when they played sports together. They waited until 15 years later to get married. You can truly see how much they loved each other. What a beautiful thing to witness. While things were great this week I still thought about the families in Louisiana. Below is an article about the disaster in Louisiana.
Louisiana flood: Worst US disaster since Hurricane Sandy, Red Cross says
The catastrophic flood devastating Louisiana is now the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy four years ago, the Red Cross said.
"Thousands of people in Louisiana have lost everything they own and need our help now," said Brad Kieserman, the Red Cross' vice president of disaster services operations and logistics.
"This disaster is the worst to hit the United States since Superstorm Sandy, and we anticipate it will cost at least $30 million -- a number which may grow as we learn more about the scope and magnitude of the devastation."
It is truly sad and the families and the community needs are prayers. I choose to added Louisiana families to our prayer list.
Psalms 18:6-7 - In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, [even] into his ears
