The Weather
The wind and rain were absent when I arose this morning at 4 AM. They have not reappeared. Praise God! The ground, rivers, streams, and creeks need a respite from the rain in order to recover. Flood warnings for this area that were in place yesterday have been rescinded! While more storms are forecast soon, today might remain dry, and tomorrow is predicted to be sunny.

Laura returned to work today. She still feels most unwell and continues to suffer greatly from a particularly nasty bout of flu. She thanks everyone for their prayers.
