Hurricane Katrina: 10 Years Later

I cannot believe it has been ten years since hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.  It seems like a lifetime ago and yet it seems like only yesterday.

In the month leading up to the anniversary, I will share with you the guest blogs of some special ladies who each had their own unique experiences with Hurricane Katrina.  I have invited them to share their thoughts.

As we look back and remember, I also want to share with you my journey.

I kept a daily journal of our experience and emailed it out to family and friends. On this 10th anniversary, I am going to publish each entry on its corresponding day.

As I have reread and prepared each post, my tears flow fresh as I relive the uncertainty, the struggle, and the loss encountered by myself and hundreds of thousands of others. I also give thanks to how the Lord led us through, how He provided, and what He taught us. I rejoice over the caring friends, families and strangers, as well as the blessings in the midst of devastation.

I invite you to join me and remember..

Grace & Peace


About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
