A Christian Couple Evacuating from a Hurricane

I had been thinking of writing something like this throughout the summer of 2021. There are factors from my life that inspired part of this, but it is mainly a work of fiction. I used the likeness of what I think a very nice future spouse would be like as inspiration for this story.

Without further ado, here is the story:

…Late Summer…

…Wednesday Morning…:

We are woken up by our weather radio and notified that our whole area is now under a Hurricane Warning.

I’ve been monitoring this situation for days and am not surprised at all.

The weather radio mentions our parish as being under a mandatory evacuation.

At once we kiss, use the bathroom, then get ready.

My wife and I have been married for almost nine months and we make each other incredibly happy.

In fact, we are so happy with each other, that we are not worried about how our trailer may be destroyed in this storm, just as long as we can still be together.

This is the second marriage for both of us and my prayer is that this is also the final marriage for both of us, because she fits my standards perfectly. She tells me how I am the answer to her prayers. Both of our previous marriages were quite faulty, but this is one of the reasons why we fit together so well.

I am thirty-five and she is twenty-nine, but we often pretend that she is nineteen and I am twenty-five!

At once, we pack.

I get my SwissGear EDC backpack and fill it with all that I usually carry plus all the gifts my wife gave me and any extra supplies that I may need.

She gets the SwissGear overnight bag that I gave her as a birthday gift and fills it with her valuables and other gifts I gave her.

We then get our SwissGear rolling suitcase and pack our clothes in it. I place my favorite tee shirts and pants in there, she places her favorite blouses and skirts in there. We both also place our undergarments and toiletries in there. I take several boxes of Little Debbie Doughnut Sticks, two jars of Community Instant Coffee and Chicory, and placed them in our oversized reusable shopping bag. I place our milk into several used water bottles along with my carton of Great Value Half ‘N’ Half and place them in my Igloo Playmate Cooler. I get my G. E. Superadio and she grabs our fireproof box containing all of our important papers and other valuables. We load up her white Dodge Caravan, pray over our property then head out.

She takes the wheel and I navigate.

I hold her hand the entire time.

We pray together and reassure each other how God is in control.

Two-hundred-seventy-five miles later inland, we pull into a truck stop for some fuel. She parks by a pump and I pay with my credit card, then fill up her van.

I then buy us each a bottle of Lipton Brisk Tea and a prepackaged turkey breast sandwich.

We park by an outside table, say grace then eat.

A tall gentleman notices us praying over our food, then asks us if we are evacuees.

We tell him how we indeed are.

He explains how his pastor is volunteering his church as a shelter and we should come there.

We agree then exchange contact information.

Then we eat our meal, and head to the church.

We park, then unload our clothes and food.

Immediately, we are welcome with open arms.

After being assigned our spot, we begin to fellowship with those in the church.

My wife assists the women with keeping watch over the children and I assist the men with cooking.

Despite, us being storm refugees, we are having a wonderful time.

We all eat a wonderful meal of spaghetti and meatballs, then we watch movies.

It’s now nightfall and several other evacuees wish to know what is going on back home, so I turn on my G. E. Superadio and can tune in to the AM stations back home. Several others are amazed by this as we all listen.

There are numerous reports of how conditions are starting to deteriorate and all lifelines are being cut off.

The pastor prays over us and we are comforted.

My wife and I then snuggle together, even though we are sleeping on a floor, we are so grateful to be together. She partially covers my body with hers and says, “You’re mine forever and no one else can have you, Mister!” I look up at her and shower her with kisses as I reply, “You’re the only one I want, so don’t ever worry, baby!” I pause then whisper, “But I think it’s very sexy when you act possessive of me!” She giggles and playfully smothers me with her breasts. I am powerfully turned on to her and she is equally turned on to me, but we realize not to cross the line with our affections since we’re not alone.

So she wraps us up in a blanket, then we fall asleep in each others’ arms, after exchanging many sweet kisses.

Thursday:
The next day, the pastor offers the church WiFi, so we’ll be able to conserve our mobile data.

I assist the elderly evacuees with connecting their iPhones and iPads through the church WiFi.

We learn how the storm is moving quickly through and that damage was minimal but all lifelines are still cut off. The storm’s remnant is forecast to go to the northeast of where are.

My wife continues to assist the ladies in watching the children and I continue to assist the men in cooking for everyone. Today I help them make Red Beans and Rice. I also show them how to make my version of ghetto punch.

We all eat together then watch movies, once again.

At night I tune in to our home stations and the reporters are saying how lifelines are being restored by we dodged a bullet for the most part.

Several people breathe a sigh of relief.

I call my pastor at home and check on him and his family. I then give him the contact information of the church where we are staying, in hopes that we can ally the two churches.

My wife and I then fall asleep together after having a war of kisses. We would be much more affectionate, but we are surrounded by many other people. How I long to fondle her thick love handles and caress her plump caboose, but I know I must be respectful of everyone around me! She giggles as she whispers to me, “Oh baby, how I wish I could pull your pants down!” We wrap our arms around each other and she sleeps partially on top of me as she says, whispering, “I don’t want you anywhere but underneath me and I cannot wait until we get home, Mister!”

Friday:
The next morning comes as we are slowly waking up. We are fed biscuits, fried eggs, and sausage patties that were donated from a local deli.

Gratefully, my wife and I say grace then eat.

I share my milk with the children since it will expire in a few days.

The church supplies me with ice for my Igloo Cooler.

The men at the church recruit me to cook with them once again saying how we need to make a very nice meal since the all-clear is about to be issued and many will go home without a hot meal for a while.

I describe to them my fried chicken recipe then they agree to make it.

Several of the men bring in fresh chicken, herbs and spices, and flour and oil.

I also tell them how some sweet peas and mashed potatoes would be good with that.

I prepare the chicken and the sweet peas, and another gentleman makes the mashed potatoes.

They also have me make my ghetto punch recipe once again.

We prepare a huge meal as my wife assists the ladies in watching the children.

Finally, we, serve the food, say grace then eat.

We then watch a movie until it is dark.

I tune in to our home station and learn how the all-clear will likely be issued sometime tomorrow and that, cell phones, natural gas, and tap water are restored, but cable and electricity will be up to a few days more.

The pastor prays a prayer of thanksgiving over all of us. Relieved, my wife and I exchange our affections until we fall asleep.

Saturday:
When morning comes, we are once again fed biscuits with fried eggs and sausage.

Happily, we eat.

I assist the men in cleaning everything up until the all-clear is issued.

We are instructed to go home and take care of ourselves and that if we are ever up here again, to come and visit them.

I give them my church’s contact information, then we lovingly bid farewell to each other.

The pastor prays over us for safe travels.

My wife and I load up her van, then we head back home.

Halfway through the trip, we fuel up and I buy us some more Lipton Brisk Tea and turkey breast sandwiches.

We arrive home in mid-afternoon, then survey our property.

There is no structural damage to our trailer, praise God!

My wife unloads her van and I clean up our yard.

Then I fix the skirting on our trailer.

I have a powerful craving for a hot cup of coffee and chicory along with some doughnut sticks.

Unbeknownst to me, my wife is preparing that very thing.

She comes outside and hands it to me.

I eat and drink, then ask, “What do I owe you, ma’am?”

“You know what I want, mister!” She replies as she teasingly lifts her skirt at me, revealing her white lace panties.

She then yanks me into our trailer, straight to the bedroom as we peel each others’ clothing off.

We pelt each other with kisses.

I then begin to kiss her neck, then her busty breasts, then her thick stomach then her nether regions between her creamy thighs as I unzip her skirt then remove her panties while she pulls down my pants and boxer briefs.

We make love with intense passion then cuddle in the sheets all night long.

Sunday:
The next morning, to which we are happily greeted with the electricity coming back on.

Fervently we praise God for taking care of us during that stressful time and also praise Him how He turned something meant for evil into something good. Subsequently, we get ready for church…

Yes.  I think it is clear that this marriage from which the narrator is describing is a rock solid marriage.  It could be close to the pinnacle of human love.  However, there exists a tremendously Greater Love and it is available to all who surrender to it.  The best part is that this love does not have all the stringent prerequisites of fleshly love.

Christmas in July-July 22, 2021

First of all, I do not own this image and therefore am giving credit whereupon credit is due. Secondly, I know that I should be boycotting Facebook, because of how they have treaded upon me, but I realize that these Christmas in July images are indeed enjoyable by at least a few of my Facebook [and Instagram] friends. Finally, some time late last week my writer’s block has left me and I am in the mood to be creative once again. So, submitted for your approval, is the words I believe this picture is worth to me: Here I picture a twenty-six year old man who is a fugitive from the law but not justice. His crime? Many find his writings to be highly seditious and subversive. Many more though are tremendously encouraged and inspired by his work. Accompanied by him is his twenty year old lover turned wife, though they were quietly wed in an unregistered ceremony. They are so much in love and full of affection towards each other but trying their best to hide from the oppressive authorities. They walk through a rural area, thinking they won’t be found. Subsequently, they come upon an old barn and hide there for the night. In the morning, the owner sees their footprints in the snow and retrieves his sawed of shotgun to confront whomever is in his barn. They are snuggling together and just barely waking up in each other’s arms when the door is flung open and he catches them. Immediately he recognizes the young man as the wanted fugitive, pumps his shotgun and orders both of them to lie face down. Subsequently they are bound by rope and the local sheriff’s department is called. While waiting for the cops to arrive, he angrily lectures them, first to the young man on how he should have worked a real job, kept his head low and been a contributing member of society instead of an insurrectionist. He then tells the young lady that she is just as evil as her lover for providing love and comfort to him. They are taken into custody. The young man is flogged to death without due process. The young lady is thrown into a women’s prison where she is murdered by fellow inmates due to their raging jealousy of her innocence and beauty.

Christmas in July-July 10, 2021

I do not own this image and I, therefore, give all credit whereupon credit is due. I wish I could post more Christmas in July pictures, but I am going through a terrible writer’s block, but trying to press through and fight it tooth and nail. When I look at this image, I am reminded of a story that has been on my mind for some time now. I picture a young man taking his girlfriend to meet his family for the first time at a Christmas shindig they are throwing. Though they’ve only been together a few months, their bond has become immensely strong. At first his family members are commenting that they moved way too fast. But then the caterers arrive and some of them are tied with the family from the young man’s marital past. As he and his girlfriend are outside exchanging affections, two of the caterers begin to make all kinds of rude comments about them. His girlfriend gets angry, tells them off and puts them in their place. Her words strike their conscience and ego with the accuracy of a .38 Special. She then grabs the young man and pelts his face with kisses while fondling his backside as she says how that should give them plenty more to talk about. She goes on to say how she too was once married to a family like that and knows exactly how they operate and now she has someone good who loves her for her and indeed cherishes her, while they are downright miserable. The young man is speechless but highly validated as he begins to lovingly caress her face as he kisses her and rubs his nose against hers. They exchange those three little words as they had many times before but this time with even more intensity! The young man’s sister and her husband witness the whole situation and soon have the rest of the family convinced that they are a perfect match and fit perfectly. The caterers are then fired and the young man and his girlfriend get in her van, go to a local market to make groceries and together prepare a delicious Christmas meal for the family, thereby winning her over to his family!

Christmas in July-July 5, 2021

Here’s my first Christmas in July picture for July of 2021. Just for the record, I do not own this image and give credit to whomever credit is due. I picture a young man getting off of work early on Christmas Eve. He then walks to his girlfriend’s house and they subsequently go for a walk, cherishing their time together. They are so much in love and likewise show their affections in front of everyone. One older woman, let’s call her Karen, threatens to call the police on them for what she deems as lewd conduct. So they walk away from her but she follows them. Karen follows them into a coffee shop and continues heckling them until the workers kick her out. The young man then thanks the workers and buys himself and his girlfriend some spice cookies and hot chocolate. They eat and drink happily. The establishment is frequented by many writers all of whom are inspired by what they saw. Many ideas are exchanged and this goes on until closing time. They then head back to her house and exchange many kisses beneath the glow of the street lamp. The young lady then tells her boyfriend to come back bright and early tomorrow morning. They exchange several more kisses and then those three little words. Afterwards, she goes inside and he walks home…

Christmas in July-July 28, 2020

NOTE: I do not own this image and I must needs give all credit to whomever credit is due. For today’s Christmas in July, I picture a young man and a slightly younger lady at a New Years Eve party they were both invited to. They do indeed like each other but 2020 had been so terrible to them and there were many stalled moments and other hangups in the relationship. There was also much ill treatment from others in their lives. But those negative aspects made them realize, now that they should be a couple, because they could make each other happy and they equally realize that they should be sweet to each other from now on. Mutually they ask each other out, just as midnight strikes. They agree and the excitement all around them is very minute compared to how they are affectionately tugging on each other’ hearts and clothing as they move in for that first kiss and not only that, the fireworks going off everywhere are pale in comparison to the sparks they feel and taste on each others’ tongues. After many passionate kisses afterward, they drink each other’s champagne and make a promise that this new year will be much better for them!…July is dwindling down, so this will be one of my last, maybe even my last Christmas in July posts. If it is indeed my last, I hope all of you appreciate them. I sure enjoy posting them and I wish I could have done more…

Christmas in July-July 25, 2020

Look, just to be clear, I am not the owner of this image. However, it does provoke a considerable deal of emotion and inspiration from my heart! I promise you this Christmas in July piece will be more pleasant than the previous. All in all, I would imagine a young couple on Christmas Eve spending the entire night cuddling in that window seat. The young lady is cradling the young gentleman in her lap and he is looking up at her with powerful admiration. As they are holding each other and looking at the night sky, they are reading the love stories from the personal blog of yours, truly, to each other. Each story they read causes them to exchange more caresses and kisses. Finally, they fall asleep in each other’s arms under the tranquil ambiance of moonlight and stars. They wake the next day, still holding on then eventually prepare to meet each others’ families and exchange gifts with them…As I conclude this edition of Christmas in July, I realize Christmas is exactly five months away and despite 2020 being a tremendously rotten year on every level, I hope and pray there will be at least some joy during this upcoming Christmas, especially since last Christmas was so awful for me…On a slightly related note, I always wanted a window seat growing up but never had one. Some day, I might write a blog piece about that.

Christmas in July-July 24, 2020

I do not own this image and I give credit to whomever credit is due! I sincerely apologize for not posting as many Christmas in July pictures with stories as I ought to. This is more of a winter in summer than a Christmas in July picture, but none the less, I would imagine the world is in total chaos because it is trying to establish a globally oppressive government and was met with resistance. Major conflict ensued, with the oppressors ultimately taking control. I picture a young couple in love looking for a place to hide and consummate their love. New laws are in effect worldwide that any couple that wants to be intimate and live together must be married and in order to be married both parties most prove their conformity and loyalty to this worldwide government. This couple refuses to do so. So they are constantly on the run, hiding in diverse subterranean places. They are cold and tired but their love for each other compels them to press on. At last, they are safe and become known to each other. But then they are caught and found without proof of conformity and then are executed on the spot, bleeding out and dying in each other’s arms…

Christmas in July-July 18, 2020

Just for the record, I do not own this image and I give all credit to whomever credit is due…When I see this, I imagine a wedding taking place, either just a few days before Christmas or on New Years Eve. The bride and groom are so much in love, but the groom has somewhat of a past. At first, the bride’s family was quite leery of him, but they ultimately accepted him when they witnessed how much he truly loves her and how he is willing to help them any and all ways that he is able. Everyone is smiling on them. Now they are exchanging rings and vows, then share a passionate kiss in front of friends, family, neighbors and loved ones. The Pastor pronounces them husband and wife and everyone goes celebrate! After the celebration a private plane is waiting to take them to an exquisite honeymoon vacation in Switzerland!

Christmas in July-July 9, 2020

For CYB purposes, I do not own this image and I give all credit to whomever credit is due…So, I picture a young couple so much in love, but absolutely forbidden from seeing each other, so they run away together on Christmas Eve. They make it to a large city, having eluded their families and law enforcement across multiple state lines. Both of their bodies are pumping with all kinds of hormones from the rush that is derived from trying not to get caught. The passion is building inside of them and while they have nothing material to give each other for Christmas, so they consummate their love as soon as they can find a place that is private, warm and free. At long last, they find such a place, just at the stroke of midnight. Boldly and passionately, they profess their love and commitment to each other then become known to each other! In the morning they wake in a sea of Tarpaulin, realizing they must needs be on the move yet again…

Christmas in July-July 7, 2020

Just for the record, I am not the owner of this image. However, I imagine a couple on Christmas vacation hiking in the mountains. After they reach a considerable height, they look down at the village below, both noticing the glowing windows. The young lady comments how beautiful the view is. The young man then replies how it is no where near as beautiful as her, nothing or no one is! She then passionately embraces him and begins to plant several kisses on his face. They then both fall into the snow giggling, where they hold each other for just a few moments, then decide to head back down because it’s getting dark. Both are carrying flashlights, which light the way as they walk back to the village…
