Another disaster for Australia

It's quite some time since I journalled and again I am asking you to add people in North Queensland in the path of our worst cyclone expected to hit tonight to your prayers. Some of you may remember that one whole branch of my family lives in Townsville where the cyclone will hit. My cousin has my 93 year old uncle staying with them for a few days until the cyclone has passed. This one is a category 5 and is predicted to do more widespread damage than Katrina did in the New Orleans area. After the terrible flooding, Queensland is to be battered again. It is going to take so much money and so long to recover.
Here, in Sydney, we are having temperatures over the century day after day, with nights not cooling down much. A change isn't expected until next Monday. School went back last Monday after the long Summer break and most schools (unless in the western suburbs or newly built) don't have airconditioning, just ceiling fans. I really feel for the kids and the teachers - I've been there so many times but, fortunately, not these days. 
To finish on a happy note, our little grandaughter is one whole month old tomorrow and growing quickly. She is a little gem and only waking once through the night to be fed (she, obviously, doesn't take after her mum). Her two big brothers are so cute and sweet with her.
God bless everyone of you and especially those friends who are doing it tougher than usual at this time.
Love and hugs

Dear Angel, I did see the news about the cyclone coming...I pray that it passes without doing much damage. I don\'t understand why there are such frightening weather conditions in recent years... I will keep you, your family and your country in my prayers. Love, Linda

Hello Angel, I too have been seeing the news reports about your country. It is frightening looking and I know you are concerned about your family. I feel we should all be praying for the world situation. Such fighting in the streets of Egypt. And the terrible weather situations around the world. I feel the promises in the Bible are coming true. God bless you Angel and I pray your family will be safe.
