Circumstances turned this blog into a Katrina blog. I don't apologize for this but do feel a bit miserable talking about the storm endlessly. So, for the next seven days, I'm not mentioning the hurricane.

Before I begin not talking about the storm, I want to mention:

*A group of Church women came to the Coast to offer a "Spa Night" to Baptist Church women. The Baptist women came to their Church and received manicures, pedicures, facials and neck/shoulder massages. I thought this was a clever offering of relief from hurricane stress.

*Another group sent tuxes and evening gowns for Prom to high school students.

*Robin from somewhere called me Tuesday to ask if there was anything she could do for me. She's staying at a local Presbyterian Church for the week. She's offering pastoral skills while others in her group are roofing and tearing out damaged walls around town.

*A local pastor came by to get donated books I've received. He was all smiles as he left with his haul.

*The Humane Society is in the new building!

I love the Spa Day version of hurricane relief. That is sweet.

books? Do y'all need books? I would love to clean out my shelves to make room for more, of course.

I have been looking for a piece of jewelry to express hope and faith and I am really excited about the Alpha/Omega bangle-thingy.

I have a confession. I have never been baptized. I don't feel right about wearing a cross and I am not a member of a church. I suppose I need to find my way about this. I want to do it right. Take classes, etc.
