What is going on in my back yard

The creek behind our camper this morning....already a little up but you can still see the rocks and the bottoms of the trees on the banks.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Our area needs rain really, really bad. So the other day I asked God to let it rain. Now I am not complaining...and I am not even asking God to stop the rain.
BUT, Dear God could you please keep the river in the creek?

The above picture was taken around 5:00 this afternoon. No rocks in sight!
And yes, the below too was taken at 5:00. ;)
Any body want to do a little surfing?
How about a little white water rafting?
The bikes below are ours. They are resting right behind our camper. Notice how close we are to the "creek". I thank you God for keeping the river in the creek......um, just like you tell the waves where they have to stop on the beech.
BUT......if I disappear and don't reappear here for awhile...it's because
God was not willing and
the Creek did rise!

Thoughts of Floyd in '99. They took me from my front yard in a boat.

Praying for you, as this must shake something deep within you.

Well, I am trying to look at the positive here- at least your home is on wheels??? Hope the waters have calmed some by now!

Halfmoongirl's comment cracked me up. How crazy is that? When God answers your prayers, He sure answers your prayers, huh? :) Gotta love Him for that!

Oh my! Oh dear! I pray right now that God hold those waters back and not allow that creek to rise any further! He is Sovereign. Keep us posted. It is always something, yes?
