How much have you read or heard….

About the flooding in Tennessee? Not much I bet. For some odd reason it’s not on the TV very much, it’s not in the newspapers and even people up in my area aren’t even talking about it to much.

Well today while meeting and greeting new people from Friday Follow I came upon a couple of blogs that are front Tennessee and do you know what, it’s terrible down there. They have lost lives, homes, businesses and so much more.

Beth McClintock is one such lady and also Fred and Ethel Mae Potter are another couple. They have written about what’s going on in their home town, they’ve shared pictures and stories and you have to go and check it all out. Then you have to pray like you’ve never prayed before, they poor people. Can you imagine losing everything and no one even knowing about it, no one helping out, no one doing anything about it. Heck when there’s devastation other places we know about it, we send help, we send supplies and we hear lots and lots about it.

Take the time everyone, to go and see and read and pray. They needed it, desperately.

God Bless you all. Take care my friends!

Dear Julie,

Thank you so very, very much for bringing attention to this disaster. It truly is devasating, but the Cumberland River in Nashville has finally dropped below flood stage today. In Clarksville, north of Nashville, it's still several feet above flood level.

President Obama has declared 27 counties in Tennessee disaster areas, so those folks will receive loans and grants to help recover. Over 8,500 people have applied thus far. The damage is overwhemling, and we're on severe water restrictions.

But we will recover. Thank you again.

Wow, that is so very sad. I live in Georgia and had not heard. I don't see a lot of news due to my illness. I mostly watch programs that have already been recorded, then I skip all those commercials. :0) However, now that I know, I will definitely try to keep track AND I will keep them in my prayers.

I'm your newest Follower from Friday Follow. I wanted to say hello and share some comment lo♥e. Thanks for sharing this story with us.

I would love for you to take a minute to check out my blog and return the favor, if you like what you see.
