A Sense of Deja Vu

My thoughts and prayers go out to those in the path of Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac, that, as I write this, is currently bearing down on the Mississippi and Louisiana coasts.

I can only imagine what is going through their minds as this storm makes its way toward landfall almost seven years ago to the day that the catastrophic Hurricane Katrina ripped into the Gulf Coast, leaving in its wake mass devastation and loss that has taken the majority of those seven years to rebuild and recover from.

May God watch over those in the path of this dangerous new storm, and weaken the storm's winds and rains by the time it reaches their homes and businesses and crops.

I pray He will also give the city, state, and national leaders the wisdom and compassion they will need in the coming days to help people safely return to their homes ... and to their lives. ~ Amen.

I haven't seen a lot of news about Mississippi. How did the coast fare?
