{ prayers needed }

The phone rang this morning a little before 5:00 am~
it was our friend Bea,
telling us that the community of Gladstone was being evacuated
because of the rising flood waters from the James River nearby..
{overnight last night, we had approx. 3" of rain fall in a one hour period, causing streams, rivers and creeks to swell}.
Gladstone is literally a stone's throw from the mighty river, and is small indeed...
but the people of the community have some of the biggest heartsI have ever known.
When my sister Jo moved here from TN last April,
the community showered her with help and care...
giving what they had & never looked for thanks...
donating furniture, food and man-power...
even volunteering to mow her grass.
small acts of kindness that were so truly appreciated.

i will be forever grateful for them because of this.
Last week, as I'm sure you all heard on the news, was one of the deadliest weeks
in the town of Appomattox's history...
8 people were shot dead, incluing 3 teenagers and a 4 year old, by a deranged gunman
hell-bent on madness...

Appomattox is a stone's throw from Gladstone.
The volunteer Fire & Rescue personnel of Gladstone lept into action last week to do what they could to help out the Appomattox community.
still reeling from the affects of having to bury their friends and neighbors,
the tiny village of Gladstone now needs our help.
Won't you please send up your thoughts of healing
& prayers of comfort for this tiny, yet
grand community?
please consider how you can help your own community:
sometimes the smallest of acts cause the greatest results.

Peace & Plenty be with you ALL~
Lori
