Going into the Storm

I’ll try not to stress out about Debby
Tropical weather I’ve dealt with before
But this week I’m chasing the clamor

A flight from Houston to Orlando
Awaits me Tuesday morn at seven
I’ll try not to stress out about Debby

Having lived on the Gulf most my life
And a survivor of Rita and Ike
Tropical weather I’ve dealt with before

Though most of the time I vacate
And Disney’s been planned for a year
But this week I’m chasing the clamor

(Please pray for my daughter and me)

may you be safe
may you be happy
may you be strong (stronger than the winds)
may you live with ease and have a wonderful vacation!
