Today is the first day we have seen the sun in a long time! This is 2nd worse flood in history our area has been through. The other was the Great Flood of 1937.
I'd like to share a few photos of the flooding and the sky I have taken in the last few days. It's amazing how something can be so scary and so beautiful all at the same time.
Please keep all of those affected by the floods and recent tornadoes in your thoughts and prayers. I'll be spending tomorrow gathering supplies for the shelter in a small town near us. I grew up with these people. They are friends and family.
It hurts to see them going through something so devastating. Losing things they have worked for all their lives. Farm land will take months to dry out. Many people make their living planting crops here and they have no idea when they will be able to get back in their fields.
The rivers are supposed to crest May 3 and there has already been so much devastation to homes along the rivers.
We went to the Amish Community Saturday and stopped by the swinging bridge. The water was already up and is a lot higher now. Of course, we still had to cross it a couple of times.
Our house is safe from the flooding and I am so thankful for that.
On a happier note....
All this rain has brought out the green.
My weigela bushes are blooming and
my kids are playing in a yard that desperately needs mowing! They also seem to have a lot of fun on this...
I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Friday.
Be thankful for all that you have and do a little something to help someone out today. You just never know when it might be you needing the help in return.
