On Friday, September 23rd, my wife Judy suggested we take a weekend break (maybe longer) and head to the cooler weather and mountainous landscape of North Carolina.
On our way North, her sister called and told us about a storm below Cuba that might hit Florida. It was only a tropical depression at the time, but I’m not good at predicting weather, let alone, controlling it, so we continued on our journey.
Well as you know, it became one of the most destructive hurricanes to hit this country and left a trail of devastation for literally hundreds of miles. Because our home lost power for nearly a week, we stayed on the road, eventually moving over to my son’s home in Santa Rosa Beach on the Florida Panhandle.
When we got home two weeks after we left, we found trees down and debris by the truckload on our property, but our home was fine.
But that’s where the story gets interesting…
Eric Lundquist is a friend with a business that he and his wife operate called Kombucha 221B.C. When the storm was approaching, he prayed and felt to stay. His friends thought he was crazy for making that choice, but he felt the peace of God, so he stayed.
100 m.p.h. winds pounded his home only 250 feet from the beach and then came the thuds of multiple 70 foot tall trees crashing on his roof.
What happened in the next 36 hours defies all rationale and leaves only one, miraculous conclusion. I was so moved by the story, I asked to interview him and share it with you.
Here it is and please share this post with everyone as I believe it will encourage the faith of many.
