We're Ready, I Think

This is Sandy's projected path from yesterday.

We are in that white space in Pennsylvania.

We are nearly ready - just have to move the chicken coop and take down the awning from the deck.

I am thankful that we have been stocking a food pantry for a few years.  It makes these kinds of events, including winter storms, easier to deal with, as most of the preparation is already in place.

If you are going to be affected by this storm, know that I will be praying for you.  Cheryl, Vee, Becky, Katy, I am thinking of you and trusting you to God's care.

I am sure we'll have our stories to tell. Can't wait to hear about them.


  1. I'm so glad to hear that you are prepared.

    Thinking of you and praying for you and your family, Deanna....Stay safe!

  2. It appears that the worst of it will pass well west of us. You, on the other hand, are directly in its path. I'm still praying for it to fizzle. You all stay put and stay safe. Have there been closings already?

  3. You are so sweet, Deanna! We'll be praying for you too!
    In our church fellowship this morning, we read the account in Matthew of Jesus calming the wind and the waves. One of our teachers pointed out that Jesus rebuked the disciples for their small faith, BEFORE he commanded the storm to calm. He said that we should be calm and trusting before the storm, because He is in the boat. And I keep thinking of the Amy Carmichael poem, "The Age-Long Minute." Rich words.

    Yes, we'll all share our stories after the storm.

  4. I am praying for you and yours. I am certain your preparedness will be a blessing during the next few days.

  5. Glad to hear that you are prepared, as well as one can be. I do hope Sandy fizzles before reaching the coast. But I will be praying for you and the other bloggers I know in the general area.

  6. So wise to be prepared. I'm watching the storm and praying rather than feel anxiety as I HOPE my young daughter heeded all advice and is prepared in her little basement apartment in DC.

    This long distance mothering thing is not fun. I would rather she be "prepared" under my wings.

    Praying for safety for all in the path!

  7. Every time I watch the Weather Channel, I think of you and pray for you and your family. After reading your blog I'll also be praying for your friends who are in the storm's path as well. I'm so thankful you are as prepared as can be!

    Jesus, please watch over Deanna and her wonderful family! Amen!
