Earthquakes, Floods, Hurricanes……….and Ticks!

Earthquakes, Floods, Hurricanes……….and Ticks! September 3, 2019
Lori has Dorr County, Wisconsin, I have Arenal Volcano Park. Go figure. I’d rather be hiking in the cloud forest down to the water falls and hot springs than whatever it is that they do in Dorr County.

This is going to be a short one today. I am on my pre-vacation vacation as opposed to my upcoming vacation and post-vacation vacation. Testing that theory this year of the vacation before and after the vacation. Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife has been largely quiet for the last week or so since Ken danced with the tick and Lyme disease in the hospital ICU. But this this pops up.

Okay, so Lori busy here obviously referencing the distinct danger many folks are in the path of – Hurricane Dorian. Good so far, but what’s this.. this list?!? Is it comedy?

…fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, ticks….

What a minute? Did Lori just really make a post about natural disasters and add in ticks??? Laughing so hard here. Here comes a natural disaster with the potential to cause billions of dollars of damage to a swath of states, leaving many homeless and killing others and she makes it all about herself and her recent troubles. The unbelievable insensitivity and sheer gall of this woman!

Oh how I wish I had art supplies with me here because I’d have to whip up a picture of flying ticks in a tornado formation!

I guess Lori does not believe in taking authority over those ticks and praying them away. I’ll do it for her.

Dear Lord, I bind these ticks in the name of Jesus and hurl them them far far away from Lori and Ken in a firey tornado of bitter torment. The blood of Jesus covers this and because Jesus took those ticks on the cross they have no right to bedevil Lori or Ken!

Just kidding! I don’t pray that way any longer. But this would be a standard Funda-Gelical prayer back in my old church days except it would have gone on and on and on about the devilish nature of those ticks.

Edited to add this film: Ticknado!
