Hurrican frances is expected to touch groud in florida on friday. I ask all of us to pray for bro. bill his wife jenny and their two kids. Let us pray for the 11th district and everyone in florida and on the east coast for their protection.

Father God put a wall protection around the dickens family and their home, we even ask that the storm turn direction and head out to sea. Provide strength and hope to the people of florida and allow bro. bill to check in with us to let us know he is well. Amen

My family is leaving for Birmingham, Alabama today for a planned Labaor Day trip. Hurricane Frances may delay our return until Monday night. If the major highays are converted to one-lane roads going north and I-10 is closed going east, I'll have another extention to my mini-vacation. Thanks for the concerns. This may be the BIG year of hurricane activity that forecasters have been talking about for the past 3-4 years. I have often wondered why scientists haven't figured out a way to covert the energy of hurricanes into something for humanitarian purposes when they are in their nascent development in the Atlantic. A Nobel Prize is awaiting a skilled and clever scientist to solve this puzzle. I wouldn't be opposed to taking creative military action against the storm either. Afterall, these storms do present themselves as a direct threat to human life. QED

Bill, In spite of the inconvenience cause me and you by the storms, may I suggest that the storms does have a humanitarian purpose; we just don't know what it is right now. After all, the eternal God designed the system specifically for humans. We have learned from hard experience that when we "mess" with the system by eliminating certian obnoxious species and then discovering their true purpose within the system. Be Blessed

Bill...my prayers are with you and your family. Birmingham is a great place to visit while on holiday. If your schedule permits, take this moment to visit the DeSoto Caverns, and sample some delicious "Bama Bar-B-Que!"

Bill, I pray all is well with you, your family and home in Florida. I've been watching the news and have seen much devastation. God bless!

Thanks for all of the prayers and well wishes. Frances imposed major damage on the state of Florida and loss of life as well. Floridians will regroup, recover and rebuild. We need to do all three since Ivan is on the horizon. QED
