CHILD of MY HEART
Written by Carolu (Mickelson) Mehaffey
Come away, come away
I will turn your night to day,
if you'll only come away with Me.
O My child, I love you so,
and I long for you to know;
Come away; come away with Me.
O child of Mine, little child of My Heart,
I am with you every hour of your day!
And through every lonely night,
you are always in my sight,
Hoping one day with Me you'll come away.
My Holy Word lay by your side
on that lonely night you cried,
and I called out "My child, I care";
But you opened not My book,
for you were afraid to look
out of fear that I may not be there.
You go your way from day to day,
seldom taking time to pray,
and I wait as very late you return.
Come and spend some time with Me,
I've many things for you to see,
For your heart and your love I yearn.
There will be peace in the valley - someday
I lift up my eyes to the hills
Valley of Broken Pieces
Story of my life
My spirit was high, my life a song
My heart was proud, my will was strong.
Then one day came the Voice of Jesus
And I saw a valley of broken pieces.
As an eagle I soared, untouched and high,
I'd rather have stayed up there in the sky,
but quietly called the Voice of Jesus:
"Come to the Valley of Broken Pieces."
Down I swooped, and was filled with awe
at the beautiful, fearful things I saw!
Yet comes the comforting words of Jesus;
"I'm here, in the Valley of Broken Pieces."
"My children are bound, and must be freed!
You must be broken, to meet their need."
"But I'm afraid!!" I cried to Jesus,
Who beckoned yet, midst the broken pieces.
Brokenness is the best gift I give.
I ask you to die, that others may live.
It's your choice," challenged the Voice of Jesus,
"Rest in the Valley of Broken Pieces."
"Lo, I AM with you, have no fear.
I'll teach you to love, and bring others cheer.
Forgiveness is yours," assured my Jesus,
"Only in the Valley of Broken Pieces."
concludedI went to the Valley, and saw the "I".
I saw the Pride which had to die.
I found new freedom - release - in Jesus,
Through many, separate, broken pieces.
Instead of sorrow, joy is mine!
Instead of anger, peace Divine.
Instead of loneliness, I have Jesus;
And wholeness now, instead of pieces!
Once I thought "I" could do it all.
Now at my Saviour's feet I fall.
I'm just a vessel, to be filled with Jesus,
Which He created - from broken pieces.
Yes, I was broken, so I might be healed.
When self was strong, Christ was concealed.
Now thru me shines the Light of Jesus,
Oh! Blessed Valley of Broken Pieces!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
don't lean on your own understanding.
Acknowledge the LORD, And He will lead you.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee
because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3
The LORD will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.
God's Holy Spirit is represented by a dove
In the days of Noah while the ark was being built,
only a few people, 8 in all, were saved. 1 Peter 3:20
Just as it was in the days of Noah,
so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man.
Luke 17:26 and Matthew 24:37
A cruise ship sailed a silent sea
Passengers dressed up swell
A sudden wave crushed the ship
And swept them all to HELL.
Bride and groom side by side
Their marriage is today.
They didn't see the tidal wave
Til they were swept away.
The men were laughing as they drank
wondering which card to play
A volcano blew, lava spewed
and swept them all away.
A baby shower and many gifts
Fun games for the ladies to play!
An earthquake struck, the home collapsed,
All lives were taken away.
The watchmen and the prophets called;
Many warnings passed them by.
REPENT! and TURN! or you WILL DIE!
They all refused to heed their cry!
Too busy with their secret porn
Or with their family,
Or with their job or car, until
They all were swept away.
The signs are there in earth and sky,
We're too busy - having fun
To hear the still small Voice of GOD
GOD's JUDGMENTS HAVE BEGUN!!!
KILLING MY BABIES!! LIVES of LIES!!
DIVIDING MY LAND!! LOVING ABOMINATIONS!!
PROFANING MY NAME!! DESPISING MY LAWS!!
NOW I AM JUDGING ALL NATIONS!!!!
If you do not know the LORD
Jesus Christ by Name
Believe Him now, then tell someone,
And LIFE you then can claim.
JESUS said MOST people will be in ETERNAL HELL.
Enter through the narrow gate;
for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction,
and there are many who enter through it.
For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to LIFE,
and there are FEW who find it. Matthew 7:13-18
The Sovereign LORD declares,
The days are coming when I will send a famine through the land,
not a famine of food or a thirst for water,
but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD. Amos 8:11
YOU CAN BE a SOARING SAINT
You do NOT need to obey your feeling of the day.
The sun will come up ~ TOMORROW!
You CAN soar ABOVE what is going on. CHOOSE!
YOU can be a SOARING SAINT!!!
Are you depressed as you walk through life?
Without hope, downcast & faint?
Jesus offers you eagle's wings,
So you may be a soaring saint.
He'll supply the power to fly,
To rise above fear & complaint.
You can go from earth to sky -
Yes,YOU can be a soaring saint!
You can rise from death to life.
You can come to peace from strife.
You can with colors your life paint,
And come to be a soaring saint!
Just ask the Lord to come to you,
Forgive your sins & clean you through;
Release you from all that would taint,
And help you be a soaring saint!
The Lord desires to set you free
of fear and hate, and jealousy.
He really wishes you to see
that you can be a soaring saint!
The soul that sinneth, it shall die.
Come heal me Lord, that I may fly!
I AM the CANDLE
I am the candle & He is the Flame,
I will go forth in Jesus' Name;
In joy or sorrow, in peace or pain,
I am the candle & He is the Flame.
Sometimes I'm high, & sometimes I'm low,
But Jesus is shining wherever I go.
One thing I'm sure of, my Lord loves me so,
And He keeps shining through me here below.
I am the candle and He is the Light,
I shall go forth into other' dark night,
I shall go out and bring others this sight,
For I am the candle and Jesus the Light.
Candles are white or yellow or red,
Sometimes they're burning & sometimes they're dead.
I shall remember all Jesus has said; and
He'll light my candle, for I'm His beloved.
I wrote this song for a pastor's weekend retreat.
The topic was 'Jesus is the Light'
Written by Carolu (Mickelson) Mehaffey
All alone, no one to care.
I look around, but no one's there.
People pass, but do not see.
Where is a friend to comfort me?
Alone & hurt, I shed a tear,
filled with sorrow, plagued by fear.
There are people, everywhere,
But not a single friend to care.
Abba, Father! My heart cries,
As deep within me my soul dies.
Save me, Lord! I waste away!
Come and take my hand today!
Softly, gently, through the sand
Of my desert, He takes my hand.
He brushs from my face the tears,
And speaks aside my lonely fears.
"I love you so, My little child,"
Came His Voice so wise & mild.
"I've walked the path you walk today,
And I care," I heard Him say.
"I wait for you at dawn each day,
But you hurry on your way.
I wait for you again at night,
But you have other things in sight.
Yes you, My child, left Me alone.
I watched you, & I blessed your going.
If you had spent more time with Me,
You'd not now be so lonely.
All you need I offer you.
Sit at My Feet, just us two.
Keep your eyes on Me alone,
And My Joy shall be your own."
Yes, my Lord, my gentle Friend!
I'll stay with You until the End.
I was wrong to leave Your side.
Forever Lord, with me abide.
LET JESUS HUG YOU
HE's ONLY a PRAYER AWAY!
I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD,
plans for good and not for evil,
to give you a future and a hope.
FREEDOM of the SOUL
Oh Lord! The darkness is so deep!
My God, the mountains look so steep!
"Oh my child, focus on your goal.
It is the healing of your soul."
Oh Lord, I bruise so easily
Whenever suffering touchs me!
"Look to Me, I'll make you whole.
I shall restore your crumbling soul."
Oh Lord! I'm so afraid to say
My sin looks bigger every day!
"Just trust Me child, & you'll be whole,
It's just the softening of your soul."
Annoint me Lord with oil from Thee!
Reveal my flesh so I'll be free.
"Ah, My child, you've seen the goal.
Now I'm free to heal your soul."
Thank you, Lord, for suffering.
Thank you always, You're my King.
I'll sing from valley, rock, & knoll,
Thank You for freedom in my soul.
The COAL & the DIAMOND
Our experiences shape our lives
The power of God fell on my soul,
That power of God to make me whole.
I felt the fire, the pressure, the toll;
Making a diamond of a lump of coal.
Once I was black & worthless & cold;
Now I have value within His fold.
My setting His choice from day today,
His Light reflecting in His own way.
People see clearly the Lord's lovely Light,
And God follows the flashs
by the power of His Might!
Each person I touch, the Lord touchs too,
And leaves Himself with them,
to teach what is true.
Oh, I often still FEEL
like that old lump of coal,
But the Lord's still at work,
deep in my soul!
He's still refining & cutting this stone,
And He shall continue until I am home!
I can't live by FEELING,
for that is just sand.
Only by God's Word of Truth can I stand.
The Father has told me that I am His son,
And He will preserve me til my life is done.
Daily world NEWS, my comments
GOD BLESS YOU!
by Thomas Kincade, painter of Light
There can be PEACE, even in sorrow
WELCOME !! Come in and browse. Feel hugged.
Laugh, cry, most of all, find PEACE
I saw this painting of the Gate by Thomas Kincade,
Painter of Light, and was moved to tears. He painted it,
I believe for his friend whose wife had just died of cancer.
She believed in Jesus Christ, Messiah, only begotten
Son of God, so she went to Heaven, through the mist.
He'd see her again one day.
I heard the creak of the opening Gate
And I knew that Heaven would not wait;
The soul was wrapped in a glowing Light
And slipped forever from my sight.
Although the walk was winding and slow
We'd traveled together, here below;
Yet when she'd passed through the Celestial Gate,
I wondered; to grieve? or celebrate?
The rocks were sharp along the road;
I could not bear her heavy load.
Her pain was great, and she longed for Home,
And now - she's left me - all alone.
She's found peace in Heaven above;
Now she knows that Perfect Love.
I shall miss her, til I see
The Gate doors opening again - for me.
FRIENDS, FAMILY ARE FOREVER
Family ties are very strong
It's good to know that you belong
To something greater than just you
That extends forever, loyal, true.
One will pass, from time to time,
Out of sight, but still in mind.
No, you won't see them anymore,
Because they've reached another shore.
Another time, another place;
New memories form you can't erase.
They leave their children, family, wife,
And enter to a whole new life.
The family bond will never break.
Their memory you will always take,
Until you, too, reach that distant shore,
And join with them again, forevermore.
GOD is VERY NEAR to the BROKEN HEARTED
Lord, You are the Light, & I am the lamp.
May my chimney be bright, & my wick never damp.
May I not be so big, or beautifiul to see,
That in seeing the lamp, people may not see Thee.
Let me Lord not be ugly, so that they turn aside.
Let them see Your Light, come near and abide.
May my wick not be damp with self-pitying tears,
Nor my chimney darkened by worry and fears.
Let the flame of love rise, by day and by night.
As I move on in battle, let praise lead the fight!
Let my joy be full, overflowing to all.
Lord, light my path, so that I might not fall.
May many be warmed by Your Love and Your Light
From my humble lamp, Lord, let them catch sight
Of visions of glory, of Heaven above!
Oh Lord! Let me live in the Light of Your Love!
Remember the poem "FOOTPRINTS"?
When you see only a pair of footprints in the sand,
don't assume that they are yours. In fact, at the
times you called out to God and let Him help you,
those footprints are the Lord's as He carries you.
TAKE MY HAND
Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on,
Let me stand, I am tired, I am weak, I am worn,
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light,
Take my hand, precious Lord, Lead me home.
It seems we tell GOD exactly how He should get us
out of the mess we got ourselves into.
We need to let God be God. Let Him, from His eternal
perspective and heavenly vantage, choose the solution
to our woes. He will never let you down or leave you.
GARDEN of the HEART
All I find within is strife
In the desert of my life;
Flowers outside everywhere;
I appear without a care.
Only I see all my pain;
My search for peace has been in vain.
Is there a Way to heal my soul?
A formula to make me whole?
I Am the Way, the Truth, the Life
to rescue you from all your strife.
Your garden outside will grow within
As you turn away from sin.
I know the aching of your heart.
My Child, if you will do your part,
I will free you from your shame
So you'll rejoice, and praise My Name!
Long ago there came a Thief
Who stole from you, & caused you brief.
The sin was his, not yours my Dear,
From that day on, you've had such fear.
This fear has been a driving force
To set you on a deviant course.
You hide from Truth for fears of pain,
And so you search for Peace in vain.
Your heart is gentle, I can see,
But you run away from Me.
One sin leads you to another,
And you hurt your sister & brother.
Seek My Face & know My love,
unconditional - from above -
Total,, complete - I never condemn
Your tender heart; you are My friend.
I await you Child, & I'll forgive.
Don't run away! I want you to live!
I'll heal your soul & set you apart,
And plant a garden within your heart.
It's true! I promise you!
I wrote this for a woman who had
been sexually abused in childhood.
I've written a dedication on the next page.
The LORD will guide you always;
HE will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Be still, and know that I am GOD
I will be exalted among the heathen
I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10
JESUS said, I will never desert you,
nor will I ever forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast
because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3
Listen! The Lord called and named Me from my mothers womb.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life,
but whoever rejects the Son will not see life,
for God's wrath remains on him. John 3:36
Believe in the LORD JESUS CHRIST (YESHUA),
and you will be saved, and your household. Acts 16:31
You shall be as a watered garden.
You shall be as white as snow.
FIND COMFORT in KNOWING OTHERS have also SUFFERED SORROW
HEALING of the HEART
I AM the Lord Who healeth thee.
How I long to set you free,
If you'll only follow Me!
I AM the Lord Who healeth thee.
Open your eyes and you will see
How much self abides in thee.
Do you not want more of Me?
I AM the Lord Who healeth thee.
All I've promised, I will be.
Open your eyes, believe in Me.
Take the first step and you'll be free.
I AM the Lord Who healeth thee.
Be not afraid, but trust in Me.
Forget yourself, and you'll be free.
Goodness and mercy shall follow thee.
I AM the Lord Who healeth thee.
Though painful memories encompass thee,
And life seems crumbling hopelessly,
It's just the breaking which sets you free!
I AM the LORD WHO HEALETH THEE!
God comforts us in sorrow so that we can comfort others.
Some have even thought of suicide. But we have trouble to
teach us to ALWAYS rely on and TRUST GOD .. and God alone.
2 Corinthians 1:8
JESUS is a River of Life,
and His children are a watered garden
The BIBLE is the BEST source of healing
I have known victims of sexual abuse, both male and female.
My heart goes out to you. In childhood you had something stolen
from you to which the thief had no right. However, that does not
give you permission to steal from innocent people now.
My heart breaks for some who live a life of pretense, hiding from
themselves and others, in one way or another.
Sorrowfully, some wind up in various forms of occult or crime.
You can NOT sell your soul to satan,
Jesus bought and paid for it. It's His.
It is my hope & prayer that you find the courage within you to
talk about it, and to prosecute the guilty. I have created these
three web pages for you. I wrote the 3 poems, Child of My Heart,
Heart Garden, and Healing for you. I can only ask that you don't
blame everyone you meet for the one or the few who harmed you.
God be with you.
Today I will be handling all of your problems.
Please remember that I do not need your help.
If it happens that you feel in a situation you cannot handle,
do not attempt to resolve it with ways that are your own.
Kindly put it in the SFJTD (something for Jesus to do) box.
It will be addressed in MY TIME, not yours.
Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold on to it or
remove it. Holding on or removal will delay the resolution of
your problem. If it is a situation that you think you are capable
of handling, please consult me in prayer to be sure that it is
the proper resolution. Because I do not sleep nor do I slumber,
there is no need for you to lose any sleep. Rest my child.
If you need to contact me, I am only a prayer away.
Love, Yeshua / Jesus
Listen for the Silent, Sweet Sound of His Voice
When you are tired and discouraged from fruitless efforts...
God knows how hard you have tried.
When you've cried so long and your heart is in anguish...
God has Counted your tears.
If you feel that your life is on hold and time has passed you by..
God is waiting with you.
When you're lonely and your friends are too busy even for a
phone call...God is by your side.
When you think you've tried everything and don't know where
to turn ... God has a solution.
When nothing makes sense and you are confused or frustrated
God has the answer.
If suddenly your outlook is brighter and you find traces of hope
God has whispered to you.
When things are going well and you have much to be thankful for
God has blessed you.
When something joyful happens and you are filled with awe ...
God has smiled upon you.
When you have a purpose to fulfill and a dream to follow ...
God has opened your eyes and called you by name.
Remember that wherever you are or whatever you are facing ...
You are set apart for God, and He has accepted you
because of what the Lord Jesus Christ and the
Spirit of our God have done for you. 1 Corinthians 6:11
THAT WHICH DOES NOT KILL US MAKES US STRONGER
BABIES are from GOD
Little child, lying there,
Born to life which is not fair;
Innocent eyes open wide;
Mother's here, by your side.
I'll be with you through each night
To comfort you in any fright.
I shall keep you from all harm,
Keep you safe, and keep you warm.
Tiny hands and tiny feet,
Little baby, you're so sweet!
Quiet, trusting hand in mine,
You are God's little gift Divine.
Today you may not even see life,
but suffer death by a doctor's knife:
A precious gift God wanted to give,
Won't even have your chance to live.
Father God in Heaven above
Smile upon us with Your love.
Keep us safe by night and day
In Your tender, Holy way.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous, how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
This poem is for all who have ever had a life in your womb,
He is a baby, as soon as the sperm penetrates the egg
How can anyone choose to kill these precious little ones!
Women do not understand the emotional and mental damage it costs.
Teens who have an abortion are very prone to die of
breast cancer in thier 20's.
I'll See You Again
Yeshua / Jesus welcomed them HOME!
You have left your footprints on my heart
I was inspired by Josh McDowell's 2002 radio program on the loss of a baby.
This can be applied to the loss of a parent or spouse also, in some modified ways.
'Little Footprints' has a beautiful line 'you have left your footprints on my heart.'
I'll HOLD YOU in HEAVEN
is a Book by Pastor Jack Hayford
For all women who have lost a baby/child.
You WILL see them again in heaven to hug and to hold!
ALL BABIES go to JESUS, to HEAVEN
Some name their unborn baby.
Some buy a physical memento.
One father who's wife miscarried went out and bought a ring
for his wife with the birthstone of the month the baby died
If you have lost a child remember
People mean well, but tend to say 'the wrong thing'
If you know someone who lost a child buy the book.
This can be a great witnessing tool for grieving parents who are unsaved.

Angels in Heaven, Debbie Heydrick
Some doctors estimate that up to 40% of all pregnancies end up in miscarriage or stillbirth.
Debbie minister to parents who have suffered the loss of a child.
Keepsake: Little Footprints
This beautiful matted keepsake is a wonderful gift to minister
to a couple who have gone through a miscarriage. With the poem
'Little Footprints' inscribed on it, it gives mourning couples
a tangible way to help them grieve their loss.
Just as you do not know the path of the wind
and how bones are formed in the womb of the pregnant woman,
so you do not know the activity of God who makes all things.
Did not He who made me in the womb make him,
And the same one fashion us in the womb?
For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb.
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book
were all written The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
They have crossed the Eternal Bridge
I was walking down life's road
underneath a heavy load;
sad and weary, trying to find
strength of body, peace of mind.
A Friend I met, Who said to me,
"send your heavy load to Me.
Each burden you have ever felt,
just put on My conveyor belt."
I took a bag, and threw it on,
and sure enough! That problem's gone!
I threw on another and another,
and noticed strength I did recover!
A bag fell off, an open sack,
I returned it to my back.
After all, it's mine, I thought,
forgetting all my Friend had taught.
My peace & strength began to fade.
Where is that new Friend I made?
"Just give it back to Me again,"
came the sweet voice of my Friend.
Jesus is my dearest Friend
On His advice I can depend.
I lay my problems at His Feet,
then we enjoy communion sweet.
The burdens I had always felt
went up on Heavens' conveyor belt.
Strength of body, peace of mind,
In my precious Friend I find.
The LORD Lifts our Burdens
I Dropped MY BAG at the CROSS
I wrote this for a friend whose life was turmoil.
She was very troubled. So I put humor in this.
But there is much TRUTH in humor
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened
again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Carry each other's burdens,
and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
GOD BLESS YOU
YOU HAVE a PURPOSE!
There is NO mountain you can NOT climb
with the LORD!
I have a purpose for you my son.
Yes I have a job - and more than one
Only you can perform this task.
I'll tell you Child, if you will ask.
I have so many jobs to do,
For some of them I've chosen you.
Some of My children turn and run,
And some of My purposes go undone.
Some lives who could be saved are lost,
Because someone won't bear My cross.
I give My strength for every task,
But some of My children will not ask.
Some say "I can't" and do not try;
Some say "too hard' and sit & cry;
Some say "I won't" and run away
Like Jonah did back in his day.
But some are faithful, some are true;
They'll count on Me to see them through,
Step by step - every day,
I will guide them on their way.
The LORD says
I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer,
without anger 1 Timothy 2:8
I'm angry, I'm frightened, I run to & fro,
Trying to have some fun.
Something is driving me, I do not know
How I end up where I begun.
I don't want to think, I don't want to do,
I just want to be me.
Why can't everyone understand,
and just leave me be!
Haunted at night by terrible dreams,
I forget when I awake.
What is the purpose of my life?
What exists that is not fake?
"You must do this. You must do that",
"Child, can't you see?"
Everyone thinks they know what's best.
Please, someone, just love me!
Jesus loves you, little child,
Loves you tenderly.
He understands your dreams & fears,
And can help you see.
Trust His Love & trust His Heart.
He has a life for you!
He will not hurt you more, my child!
He has forgiven you!
Others hurt Him, long ago.
He knows the pain you feel.
Even His friends deserted Him.
All your wounds He'll heal.
Just call, "Jesus, come to me!"
And He's close to you!
He loves you more than people can,
And He will be true.
He will always be your Friend,
Even when you stray.
Put your hand in His today,
And let Him walk your way.
This I wrote for a runaway teen
whose parents were friends of mine.
LOVE is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
1 Corinthians 13:5
I FACED FLOYD in FLORIDA
Thot some of you inlanders'd enjoy my story when I lived in Florida
Make DECISION - EARLY - to run or stay
I decided to STAY - as it turned out, a wise decision!
Hurricanes are known for their fierce winds, but the rainfall and storm surge
(waves) they produce are worse! Many are killed by the flooding and the storm
surge. Afterward we worry about diseases from the dead bodies. After these
hurricanes, flooding. Who knows what diseases its winds have blown in? It
will be weeks and months before we discover the answer. This weather breeds
pests that attack and infect both humans and crops.
Result: FAMINE, Shortages, & High Prices. And thats the BEST part.
At worst, incurable diseases and much death as plagues new and old
sweep America. One of these prevelant in wet climate? Hemorrhagic
fevers such as EBOLA.
I prepared for Floyd. I had batteries on hand, so when I lost power, I had a flashlite and radio.
My power was out for 12 hours. It flickered all day Oct. 15, went out at 8pm
Friday evening and returned Saturday morning at 8am, but was unstable
and kept going out again. Power goes out.
DON'T trust tapwater after floods. A water treatment plant was flooded and the area had NO water.
(ed: NOTE: In disaster you are cut off. No services. You must be able to exist on what's in your home.
Remember this, great disasters are upon America, coast to coast! Stay prepared! )
September 9 we start tracking Floyd
MONDAY, September 13th, 1999 ~ I awaited Hurricane Floyd
* 7:00am - DECISION: Stay at home ~ Each hour dragged on... and on...
as everyone in Florida awaited the promised turn of Floyd to the north.
* 7:30am- Monday - the weather channel calls Floyd a catagory 5 with
winds of 155 mph. 5 is the worst! This sucker is 600 miles wide!!!
This morning a hurricane watch area was posted, and I am in it. I am watching, praying, trusting GOD.
Jesus???? This is a good day.... beam me up! * 8:30am- Drove to Walmart for hurricane supplies, bread & milk. Wal-mart already nearly OUT of batteries size D. * Make note: always have a dozen D batteries on hand
* 9:30am- Have food and water. Will fill tub. Cooked a batch of rice,
boiled some eggs, put water in freezer & will make a large container of coffee.
cold coffee? better than NO coffee! Floyd is due tomorrow or Wednesday.
However hurricanes are unpredictable. If I lose power it will be awhile before I can communicate.
Should I cook lotsa pasta, rice n eggs just before January 1? In case?
TUESDAY, September 14th WAITING ........ L O N G day!
* 7am - darn thing's still coming at me, hasn't turned north!
prediction of the moment says it won't hit me with the 155 mph winds,
'only' 75mph. grin! It doesn't sound good but it's too late to run.
Some are running SOUTH which is dumb, as Andrew turned south suddenly.
So could this. The good thing is I am not on the worst side of its wind unless it turns south.
I pray I dont lose windows or power. I have tuna, canned hash (yuk), and soups.
I cooked rice and boiled eggs and have water for a week. I have batteries for a couple days. (eek)
* 9:00am - Floyd has winked north. Now we are not expected to have the full 155 mph winds, 'only' 40-76.
*** Some of my random thoughts that crossed my mind throughout the long day of waiting ....
DECISION: I'm staying home. Got batteries & flashlite. Have food & water.
Will fill tub to flush - apprehension - waiting - watching
cloudy here - I saw a bird fly - windy, about 30mph I think - I am
surprised how bright it is. Opened door. oops! hot n humid!.... and windy!
Pulled all my blinds down, but not in kitchen - need to see out, winds
will increase thru day to hurricane force. I plan to stay online
continually til my power goes out but I pray power does not go out.
it dont look normal out there. I hate being without looking out a window,
so my kitchen shade is still open. God protects me.
Floyd's been tracked for days, but it seemed sudden.
people who own boats in Boca Raton issued a 2 hour to lockdown warning to get boats thru bridges over intercoastal, boat owners were shocked they had so little time - in fact didnt even know about the warning cuz they were shopping - get boats secured or thru drawbridges on very short notice.
6 shelters are full already. there were varying reports of everything last nite as is common in all disasters. Gov Jeb Bush already declared florida a disaster area to speed help later. airport open til noon, but most major airlines cancelled all in and out flights already. They closed all schools for Tuesday & Wed. and many
public services and bldgs. and it's going to be a LONG NIGHT too
It's 5:00pm Tuesday - I've not seen anything scary yet. The bad winds
are to arrive around 10pm to midnite, last thru nite and abate Wed.
In fact today has been bright even with sun, but quite windy.
Some rainbands came thru - no thunder so far. That will come later, but
with all the hype it all seems to be past instead of yet to come.
Very odd feeling ... suspended ... timeless. Feels like its all over already .... unreal.
Floyd finally did turn north. thank God!
It was NOT good for all those who drove north to flee Floyd and were stuck on hiway!
We won't even mention storm Gert is right behind
* 8pm Tuesday, news is good ... hurricane eye went north ... however,
the worst yet to come here they say ... winds to hit in next few hours
and last all nite long. however they wont be as bad as they could have.
Suddenly I feel totally exhausted. Talked to another Floridian who is also exhausted.
If this has been a long watch for me, the poor people who get struck
by these terrible disasters!
WEDNESDAY, September 15th ~ THANK GOD I'm SAFE!
I have electricity - and enuf food for a week!
All day today Hurricane Floyd crawled along the north Florida coast.
I want to thank every person who emailed me. I did not feel alone.
Power is out north of me, streets are littered, trees & branchs down, items tipped over, signs askew.
Ocean surf was high way down to Miami Beach. I was totally exhausted.
When Floyd FINALLY turned north I was overwhelmingly relieved, and had the feeling it was all over.
A dock in Daytona Beach was destroyed heavy surf, Jacksonville's being pounded by heavy surf & winds & rain, getting hit by western edge of hurricane Floyd. Winds down to 135 mph now. The Marines were evacuated
somewhere up in that area. Floyd is 3 times larger than Andrew, 600 miles across! Huge storm! Nearly 2 million people have been urged to evacuate coastal areas from Florida to North Carolina. A hurricane warning is in effect from Ft Pierce, Fla, across Georgia and the Carolinas to Virginia border, (later extended all the way up the
eastern seaboard). and FLOYD MOVED ON up the Coast
THURSDAY, September 16
Floyd's fury from the Carolinas to New Jersey smashed piers, snapped
power lines & flooded low-lying areas in northern & central Florida.
Early Thursday morning Floyd swept ashore as Category 3 near Cape Fear
25 miles south of Wilmington, NC with 110-mph winds and an 11-foot
wall of water. It had already dumped more than 14 inches of rain
there on Wed. Floyd knocked out power to more than 230,000 homes,
flooding streets with waist-high water and spawning tornadoes in a
region slapped by Hurricane Dennis just weeks ago.
Hurricane-force winds extended more than 115 miles from the eye as
Floyd moved inland. New York City preparing for evacuations Floyd's
northeastern edge. To date they estimate 2 to 3 million evacuated.
Friday, September 17th - Floyd is now a tropical storm, 60 mph & has
picked up speed as it moves across land. Tropical-storm winds extend
about 200 miles eastward from the center. Schools were closed Thursday
for more than 2 million youngsters. Some 1.4 million utility customers
from South Carolina to New Jersey lost power. USA Today
12-9-2001 Transferred page from old website. In 1999 I did not think
of Floyd as being God's judgment. There were many hurricans in 1999
HURRICANE FLOYD ~ SUMMARY
Floyd was 600 miles across, Winds 155mph
3 days of warnings indicated this storm, Floyd, was 3 times worse than
Andrew, worse than Hugo. Many people evacuated south, but Andrew came
right toward me, then veered south at the last minute. Over a million+ people evacuated.
It took those who ran north 22 hours to make an 8 hour trip!
The runners on the few roads out were stuck in 6 mph traffic with many
cars breaking down. TV reported it was a nightmare. If Floyd had struck,
those on the road would be worse off than at home! At a certain point it
is better to stay home, if one does not run early.
October 8 - North Carolina still has not even close to recovered.
Floods remained 2 weeks.
During Hurricane Floyd, one lady in Pennsylvania not only lost power,
but water /pump too - they could not wash, shower, or even flush. She
has an all electric home. She had no idea it'd come inland. In Daytona,
Florida a couple evacuated Tuesday, and an 8 hour trip took them
22 hours! Moral? Leave a day earlier. Decide early.
HURRICANE FLOYD was HUGE! 600 miles across with 155 mph winds Came thru
September 11 to 16, 1999 - However, HURRICANE IRENE was only catagory 1,
but the eye came just to our west, and we were on her bad side!
Hurricanes affected both our financial & emotional health. The damage
caused by Hurricane Irene has been both financial and emotional. While
flooding on South Florida farms could lead to higher food prices in much
of the country, residents of eastern North Carolina are struggling to
raise their spirits after suffering through three straight hurricanes;
Dennis, Floyd, & Irene. Irene caused at least $100 million in farm damage
most of it uninsured - in South Florida, the nation's leading producer of
winter vegetables, state agricultural officials said. The flooding of up
to 18 inches in parts of Florida could affect prices nationwide for
tomatoes, sweet corn, cucumbers, green beans, eggplant, squash & zucchini.
Also acres of fruit trees lost because their roots were under water too long.

Hurricanes Charley, FLORIDA Aug. 13, 2004
and Hurricane Andrew in 1992:
PEACE in the middle of the STORM
I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you.
There'll be signs in the sun moon & stars & on earth distress, trouble
of nations in perplexity, bewildered, without resources, left wanting
at the roaring of the sea
Luke 21:25 & Joel 2
Hurricane Floyd and the terribles earthquakes in Taiwan & Turkey should
show us the importance of being prepared.
Jesus said - As the lightning flashes from the East to the West, so
shall be the COMING of the SON of MAN (JESUS CHRIST). Wherever the
corpse is, the vultures will gather. Immediately after the distress of
those days the sun will be darkened & the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from the sky & the heavenly bodies will be shaken.
At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, & all
the nations will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the
clouds of the sky with power & great glory! He will send His angels with
a loud trumpet call, & they'll gather his elect from the four winds,
from one end of the heavens to the other. As it was in the days of Noah,
so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Before the flood people
were eating & drinking, marrying, up to the day Noah entered the ark
- And they knew nothing about what would happen
UNTIL the FLOOD CAME & TOOK THEM ALL AWAY
That's how it will be at His coming
August 16 through 28, 1992
I lived in FLORIDA in 1992 - my first year there. What a welcome!
This hurricane was headed straight for ME! but turned at the very last moment and hit south of me.
Our pastor put several of us ladies together in the home of the lady on high ground inland.
This is a report from the internet.
Andrew was a small, ferocious Cape Verde hurricane that wrought unprecedented economic devastation along a path through the northwestern Bahamas, the southern Florida peninsula, and south-central Louisiana. Damage in the United States is estimated to be near $ 25 billion, making Andrew the most expensive natural disaster in U.S. history. It struck southern Dade County, Florida, especially hard, with violent winds and storm surges characteristic of a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir/Simpson Hurricane Scale, with central pressure (922 mb) the third lowest this century for a hurricane at landfall in the United States. In Dade County alone, the forces of Andrew resulted in 15 deaths and up to one-quarter million people left temporarily homeless. An additional 25 lives were lost in Dade County from the indirect effects of Andrew.
The direct loss of life seems remarkably low considering the destruction caused by this hurricane.
*Some reports from Dade county people say the death toll there was much higher. Many illegals were killed but not counted. Maybe so, and they voted in Election, 2000
August 24, 1992
The strongest winds associated with Andrew likely occurred in the hurricane's northern eyewall. While a universally accepted value for Andrew's wind speed at landfall may prove elusive, there is considerable evidence supporting an estimate of about 125 kt for the maximum sustained wind speed, with gusts to at least 150 kt
Andrew dropped over 7 inchs of rain.
Damage is estimated at $25 billion.
I SURVIVED ANDREW!
Thank GOD George W. Bush won - legitimately!
I lived in PALM BEACH COUNTY when Andrew struck. (Yes, the infamous 'that ballot' county, and the FRAUD which took place by the GORONS was appalling! ALL LIES!)
We were warned many days ahead of time. Until the last minute, Andrew was headed toward Palm Beach County. I PRAYED! At the last minute it veered south. I was so relieved! We had some storm damage, and my power went out, but nothing like Dade county, thank GOD.
Several of us holed up in one lady's house on higher ground to wait out the storm. We had water and cans of tuna and other items we could eat which would not need refrigeration.
Always keep items in your home for a few days, which you do
not need an ELECTRIC can opener to open (I have a hand opener).
Items which do NOT need refrigeration. This is just common sense.
Hurricanes Andrew, Charley, and Floyd
There are some prophets saying America will soon be at WAR, right here at home. I want to tell you.
ELECTION, 2000 WAS CIVIL WAR!
HURRICANES ARE WAR!
Perhaps everyone who has survived a natural disaster will say
it is WAR to survive - especially for those unprepared.
May I add ... keep some EXTRA for neighbors less wise than you
I lived in Florida in the 1990s, when hurricanes Andrew and Floyd
slammed thru. My church went down there to help, and as they drove
over the rise, the stench of Death was overwhelming, my pastor said.
You can believe this happened with Charley too.
In fact, there is a possibility man contributed to the last minute
direction change. The 600 total of dead from Charley in SW Florida
may be low. Media lied about only 25 dead, it would affect TOURISM.
Over 5,000 bodies burned in a crematorium after Andrew.
GO read that extremely long article on Quayle's (SQ) website!
This is how FEMA is behaving in Florida NOW also! Nothing has changed!
FEMA is evil. A book, CONSPIRATORS HIERARCHY says JFK was killed because he refused to set up FEMA for the NWO. Alliance of wealthy intl bankers, secret societies and mafia want American economy destroyed.
BOOK of the Committee of 300 who run the world By Dr. John Coleman, career intellegence officer. The Constitution of the United States has been literally re-written, as it is in direct conflict with the globalist/international COMMIE objectives.
He tells how JFK was assassinated because he would not set up FEMA,
which is a vital part of NWO plans to control the world.
Coleman lists several groups run by the COMMIES, some are homosexuals.

TESTIMONY of an ANDREW SURVIVOR
K.T. Frankovich - KFrnkovich@aol.com
The Hurricane Andrew Cover-up
THOUSANDS DIED! The EMERGENCY ALERT THAT CAME TOO LATE.
YOUR life may depend on being prepared. The authorities grossly understated
the death toll from hurricane Andrew, the worst natural disaster in US
history, and left thousands of survivors to die in a zone contaminated by
radiation. The largest natural disaster ever recorded in the history of the
United States was hurricane Andrew, which struck Florida, August 24, 1992.
Contrary to what the American news media broadcast across the USA
and throughout Europe, the first outer wall of the hurricane unexpectedly slammed
into Dade with 214+ mph winds which quickly escalated to 350+ mph. Most of the
414,151 residents living in the danger zone were asleep when the outer wall struck.
Thousands of them lost their lives, for no one in Dade had been evacuated.
By 11.00 am the following morning, 8,230 mobile homes along with 9,140 apartments had
vanished off the face of the Earth. The Hiroshima-like horror was beyond catastrophic.
Entire families perished. The stench of death could be smelled for miles,
the hot humid air was reeking with foul, rotting flesh, both human and animal.
I was in the midst of it all. Never will I forget the frantic, last-minute
"emergency alert" broadcast that was aired on television just before all hell broke
loose. My son and I had the TV on, hoping to catch an updated report on the
hurricane, when the screen suddenly went blank with a loud warning signal.
Before we knew it, a panic-stricken voice began the announcement
We interrupt this program to bring you an emergency alert from the National Broadcast
Emergency Center. The outer winds of hurricane Andrew have just reached the Florida
coast. Hurricane Andrew has unexpectedly shifted five degrees south. Andrew is
expected to strike South Dade within minutes. All South Dade residents should take
immediate cover! All South Dade residents are advised to stay put, DO NOT LEAVE!
ATROCITIES in the AFTERMATH
There isn't a person on the face of this Earth who will ever convince me that hurricane
Andrew was a "hurricane" by any sense of the definition. Just ask any survivor of
Andrew what the 6 hour siege was like and the answer will always be the same. The
injuries of those who survived were mind-boggling. I had a broken jaw with 8 teeth
knocked out. Huge shards of glass impaled my body. But I was only one amongst thousands
of severely injured victims who struggled to survive the aftermath.
For 10 days we were roped off from the outside world by United States military,
leaving us stranded with no food, no water, no medical supplies, no shelter. Suffering
from severe shell-shock, we waited and waited for rescue teams to arrive, but that
never happened. None of the injured in the roped-off areas was ever rescued from the
devastation. It was the worst betrayal I have ever experienced.
United States military forces were indeed present within hours of Andrew ending.
But they were not there to help survivors. The National Guard along with the Coast Guard,
the Army, FEMA, Metro Dade Police, state police and local police removed dead bodies and
body parts as quickly as possible. Refrigerator trucks packed with body bags ended up at
Card Sound Navy Base, just above the Florida Keys where the bodies were either incinerated
or just dumped into huge open grave pits. Those working on the body pick-up operation were
forced to take an Oath of Sworn Secrecy, which is strictly enforced by the government.
A large population of Mexican illegal immigrants vanished without a trace that night.
Many bodies were found way out in the Everglades.
Clearwater, Florida, 1999, Chief Petty Officer Roy Howard said, I was called up to
active duty after hurricane Andrew went through South Dade County for 9 weeks.
The death figures that were officially published are totally inaccurate.
There was over 5,280, and they were quietly disposed of
in incinerators hurriedly put together by the Natl Guard and FEMA.
GOVERNMENT BETRAYAL - FIRSTHAND ACCOUNT
What actually took place when Andrew survivors tried to get help
from those collecting dead bodies in the aftermath?
Day 3 - A long line of a dozen police cars from all over Florida cautiously drove
into my area. We had not had contact with any other people from outside the devastation
up until this point. Each car was driven by a man dressed in a dark police uniform and
had 3 other plain-clothed men riding as passengers. Someone from our group ran to get me,
knowing that I had been badly injured and urgently needed emergency medical help,
and helped me to these policemen. The officer rolled down the window.
I begged, "Please, sir, I need medical help, I need to get to a hospital."
The officer sitting behind the wheel sighed and turned his head away from me.
He slowly opened the door and climbed out and stood there saying, "Lady, find yourself
a piece of paper and a pencil. Write down your name and social security number next
to the telephone number of your nearest living relative. Tuck the piece of paper
in your pocket so tomorrow, when I find your body, I'll know who to contact."
I cried, "You don't understand. I need to get to a hospital. I've been badly injured."
"No! You're the one who doesn't understand," he hissed back. With that, he reached over
to his holster and took out his gun. He grabbed me, forcing me up against the side of
the car, and proceeded to put the barrel of the gun against my temple. I heard the hammer
cock. He growled, "You don't belong here!
Now you get the hell outta here before I blow away your as*!"
When hurricane Andrew slammed into South Dade, the State Attorney of Florida was Janet
'inept' Reno. The United States Government evacuated Homestead Air Force Base before
hurricane Andrew struck, yet never released the information to the civilians of South Dade.
While we remained roped off from the outside world by Metro Dade Police and the military,
the news media reported grossly understated information from the first day onward.
August 24, 1992, the morning hurricane Andrew ended, the Miami Herald paper broke with:
Andrew Hits Hardest in South Dade. 5,000 people were left homeless by the storm.
By Aug 25 only 10 were reported dead in Dade. CENSORED NEWS JUST LIKE CHARLEY, 2004!
A NUCLEAR INCIDENT
TURKEY POINT Located on Biscayne Bay, 24 miles south of Miami, Florida
One incident resulting from Andrew's winds bombarding the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant was
NOT aired by the news media either nationally or abroad. Demolition crews toppled a 400-foot
smokestack at Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant September 4. The stack, which had a gaping
200-foot crack, was dropped without a hitch. Turkey Point will be shut down for several months
while repairs are made. The cost will exceed $90 million, according to an initial damage report.
When Turkey Point was built in the 1960s, its main structures were designed to withstand
235 mph winds. Hurricane Andrew was clocked at 164 mph at the plant. FPL officials don't
know why the smokestack didn't hold up.
$100 million dollars worth of damage resulted from the nuclear power plant's smokestack having
been cracked wide open. The plant is situated approximately 15 miles northeast of where I lived.
I recall the leaflets circulated several months before Andrew struck, advising all residents within
a 35 mile radius of Turkey Point nuclear plant to be aware of the potential hazards involved if an
event such as a natural disaster or unexpected catastrophe happened.
Such a grim reminder of the Chernobyl tragedy. nexusmagazine.com
Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant, Miami, FL:
From all I am hearing, much the same for Hurricane Charley August 2004 in SW Florida.
There are those who say govt can alter the course of a hurricane.
They would do this to cover other things up. hmmmm
