There are no words to describe the feeling of what occurred this past weekend. If you live in the area or have watched the news, then you’re fully aware of the flooding that we’ve experienced in Tennessee and surrounding areas. Several areas received as much as 13 inches of rain in just one day! We had only one concert scheduled in Smyrna, GA for Sunday morning, so we had planned to leave home on Saturday afternoon. After leaving the house, we realized exactly how bad things were! Water was running across Interstate 40 only a few miles from our house that had traffic backed up for nearly 20 miles! We took another route, only to find out that road was also closed due to flooding. At this point we really began to question whether we would even be able to make it out of Jackson! In the meantime, a fireman stopped by our home and advised everyone to evacuate their homes immediately due to a levee breaking at a nearby lake. He said that it could possibly flood our home if the other one broke! I called Pastor Steve Davis and shared the situation with him, and he agreed that we needed to put our safety first. After a lot of discussion, we attempted to head south through Mississippi and take the long way to Atlanta. We encountered several areas that were under water, but successfully arrived at the church at 1:00 am on Sunday morning! After having a wonderful service at Sharon Baptist that morning, we knew that we would have to travel right back through the storms to get home. We’re thankful for all of the prayers and concern for our safety and with the Lord’s protection… we safely made it home late Sunday night! You can see several more photos right here! How did the rain and flooding affect your weekend? Do you have any family or friends that were affected by this weather?
