Tennessee Flood Update

There are countless families who lost everything in the flood last weekend. The flood water was contaminated with waste water and fuel, so everything the water touched is now completely ruined. Unfortunately, many families who were impacted by the flooding do not live in a flood zone and therefore do not have flood insurance. As a result, rebuilding will be costly during a time when the economy is not at its best.

Families in Middle Tennessee who escaped the disaster are eager to help their neighbors in need. This weekend, our neighborhood will be hosting a gigantic yard sale. Many families have decided to offer their items FREE to flood victims. I was not planning to participate when I learned of the sale a few weeks ago, but now I can hardly wait.

We live in Chestnut Bend Subdivision and would be happy for anyone in the area to come join us on Friday and Saturday from 7am-2pm. In addition, our neighborhood teenagers and children will be offering baked goods for sale with all proceeds going to benefit families impacted by the Tennessee Storm Disaster. If you would like to be involved in any way, please feel free to email me. My mom and dad will be visiting from Cleveland, TN this weekend. I know I have several Cleveland blog followers (thank you)----if you would like to send some clothing or baby items along for the flood victims, please drop your items off on Thursday and Friday at Prospect Elementary School for Kaye Miller.

May the Lord continue to use us to offer comfort to those who have suffered such great loss....and may His light shine through all that is done in the process. It is ALL about HIM. It is ALL about ETERNITY!
