Thank you for your kind prayers. My family did great during the storm. We lost power. The fireplace, candles and, a new Monopoly Game kept everyone calm for the night.
We have a relative who is in a precarious situation in New Jersey. My husband's uncle Bob was are only Catholic relative for a while and hence is my daughter Mimi's Godfather. He defied an evacuation order, and is now on a barrier island that is completely submerged by ocean water. At the last update he and his wife were staying on the second floor of their home with some neighbors, refusing to leave with the National Guard.
St. John of the Cross, please pray for him. Pray for all men caught in the storm to have great recourse to God's counsel.
