one thousand gifts | after the storm

stories 2016 | after the storm


I didn't take near as many photos after the storm, after Hurricane Matthew came this close to destroying our lovely city. But, the few photos I did take speak of Jeff, every second of every day before the storm, during the storm and after the storm...Jeff and his servant heart. 

He's a work horse.

He won't sit down if he can help someone in need with something he is good at doing.

So, we evacuated with all his tools, and equipment, necessary to re-build not knowing what we'd be facing after the storm.

The very afternoon after the storm moved through, when the rain had cleared, when the winds had died down, Jeff and the boys began cleaning up the yard of the home we evacuated to. The next day they were out again helping their neighbor pull down and cut up a couple trees that had weakened and split ready to crash into a barn full of equipment. The neighborly thing to do.

We made it home and he helped clean up the neighborhood. Typical Jeff. My servant-hearted husband.


For these pages I made a 12 x 12 page on the left side. I used much of Ali Edwards' Story Kit UP plus others from other kits. I shamelessly scraplifted from Ali's page example from the kit, too. I'm pretty cool with how these turned out. Everything is digital as that is my go-to way to scrapbook these days.


Honestly, I'm not surprised, but Jeff just really outdid himself during Hurricane Matthew. He was a rock!
