Looking Back >Katrina Recoverers:  September 16th, 2005

Day 19

I think we arrived at a turning point today. Jon and Bob ripped out the last of the sheetrock. They’ve finished demolishing our home and we’ll be able to begin restoration. I cleaned Daniel’s room today; it was quite a mess. I’m still hoping we’ll find his snake, which escaped when Daniel left the cage unlatched before we evacuated. Jon and Bob will be meeting Jon’s parents in Beaumont Texas to pick up the kids on Sunday. We’ll continue to stay with Bob and Staci until our house is livable, which Jon hopes to have by the end of the month. Of course, livable means electricity with appliances.

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: tabletsofhumanhearts.wordpress.com 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.
