Noah’s Ark



Flooding in Iowa city forces 24,000 from homes

CTV.ca News Staff


"Water has started to recede in an Iowa city where flooding submerged hundreds of city blocks and forced 24,000 people to leave their homes."
The complete story can be found here.
My prayers go out to all who have been affected by this flooding.

Stay safe and here are some things that I learned from reading about Noah's Ark.
*
*
Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something really big.
Don’t listen to critics.
Do what has to be done.
Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
Build on the high ground.
Speed isn’t always an advantage
The cheetahs were on board, but so where the snails.
If you can’t fight or flee...float
Two heads are better than one.
Take care of your animals as if they were the last ones on earth.
Don’t forget that we’re all in the same boat.
When the crap gets really deep, don’t sit there and complain, shovel!!
Stay below decks during the storm.
Remember that the ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals.
If you have to start over, have friends by your side.
Remember that the woodpeckers inside are often a bigger threat than the storm outside.
No matter how bleak it looks, there’s always a rainbow on the other side.
and most important
****
DON’T MISS THE BOAT

Your ost is full of very good advice! The world seems to be suffering more and more from huge tragedies lately. If only people with power and ifluence would make more effort to help those who are suffering instead of making war on one another. . . . .
