This is terrible and terrifying for many.
Cyclone Yasi.

We are expecting the largest cyclone EVER to hit Cairns, northern Queensland at midnight tonight.
The Biggest in Generations.
This cyclone is larger than cyclone Tracy that squashed Darwin in 1974.

Monster Category 5.

Winds will be up to 300klm/hour (186 miles).
It is a 400klm (249 miles) in diameter.

The eye is expected to be about 80klms.
Everyone has been advised to evacuate.
Beautiful Cairns is expected to go underwater.

For hundreds of miles down the Queensland coast everyone is heeding the warning.

We should be safe.
However, everyone has been warned to be careful.

"I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go,
and I will bring you back to this land.
I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you."
Genesis 28:15

For those who belong to the Lord...we are never losers.
He is near us here on earth, or, we are gathered with Him in Heaven.

 Faith Gives Re-assurance


  1. I've been thinking of you, Crystal, though I know your town isn't under threat, and we've been watching your Premier's briefing and the warnings just now.
    With love and prayers.

  2. Crystal Mary, I have been watching this via NASA satellite imagery. You're right, it is a monstrous storm. I hope that you are well clear of it. Keep safe!

  3. Oh boy this doesn't sound good. You sure are having weather issues!
    I am praying against this cyclone for our God controls the weather.


  4. We'll pray for you and Queensland. Indeed - the weather is in God's hands...he knows.

  5. I've already said one prayer for you and all those living in that part of the world. I'll be praying for you all more as the hours go on. Bless you.

  6. I sure will be keeping you in prayer and those in the area where it's suppose to hit. I know here in the United States we are having a monster snowstorm/blizzard that will be affecting many states. In some states they have called out the National Guard. They are saying this storm could go down in the record books for many states. Keep safe. Blessings.

  7. Oh, Crystal Mary, my prayers are with you all during this scary time. Please stay safe.

  8. That's right, God controls the weather!
    Praying !!!

  9. They were just talking about this on the radio. Pretty amazing and scary stuff. God is in control.

  11. Crystal, Thanks for sharing. I'll definitely be watching this and lifting your area to God in prayer. Take care. Sandra

  12. Sometimes we pray for something not to happen and it still we can believe that God will keep people safe in the often does He do that for us in life! Praise God. Lunch on Monday would be great..I'll ring you.

  13. Hi. I don't know what to say other than God is your refuse. Love you lots and like many others who visit your amazing blog will be praying for you. Geoff.

  14. Blessings to You!
    (Golly, so much has happened - one thing, then another . . )
    I am lifted by YOUR FAITH.
    love & love,

  15. Saw this on the news and thought of you - boy you all have been hit hard.

    Prayers to Austrailia.

    How are you feeling?


  16. Many, many prayers coming your way, Crystal.

  17. Hello, such terrible news...Australia and her people will certainly be in my prayers...I live in an area where hurricanes are always a threat, I know the feeling of evacuating, not knowing if there will be a home standing when you return. May God keep you all under His wing...
