Goodbye, Irene!!

Hi, everyone! Irene is finally gone and we are all OK, thank the Lord!

We lost our power Saturday afternoon about 3:30, our phone that night, and both came back on about 11:15 this morning. We have a generator, so we were able to save what was in the refrigerator. There was a lot of wind and rain, but thankfully, we didn't have any damage to our home. The worst of the storm came through Saturday night. Needless to say, I was doing lots of praying!

We're taking Katie to the eye doctor this afternoon, so we're looking forward to getting out for a little while.

I hope to catch up on e-mails and blogs soon. Thank you all so much for your prayers. We're sorry to hear about all those who lost their lives, and will be keeping those families in our prayers.

Hope you have a great week.

Take care,


  1. So glad your prayers were answered. I guess it was hard on the ones that it hit though. This year has been something!

    Good luck to Katie at the eye doctor!


  2. Praising the Lord with you!

  9. Hi Melanie,

    Oh I am so glad ya'll are safe. Yall has floods,we are having Bad fires, ln one area 3000 acres so far are burning

  12. Good Afternoon Mrs. Melanie,

    I am so thankful to hear that you and your family are safe. We didn't loose power during Irene, but a good portion of Western Maine did (and part of our town did loose power too). Like in your area, we had a lot of wind and rain, but, thank the Lord, no damage to our home, except for some shingles falling off the roof, but they are all coming off soon anyways. ;)

    May the Lord bless you and your family today, as you serve Him. He is such a wonderful Lord and Savior.

    God Bless,
