Buttoning Down the Hatches
That is what we are doing here in Brisbane, and in so many other parts of Australia. Our house is high up and unaffected by the flooding. Brisbane feels like it is working in slow motion. Businesses are closed, roads cut, local playgrounds flooded.
I have been doing a bit of button-y fiddling while The Boy and the Little Miss are otherwise engaged (how thankful I am for ABC kids...)You all know how comforting little activities are in troublesome times.
The Mr has taken a strong dislike to this poster. He thinks it should read something like this:
"In times of trouble, hold onto God and wait for The Day".
The Day meaning the day that Jesus returns to end suffering and make all things new. Amen to that, though even the Mr agrees this saying is way to wordy for poster art, and we shall agree to think of the revised statement whenever we wonder past the offending poster.
Thank you to those who have emailed and facebook-ed your love and concerns.
One can donate to the Queensland Premiers Flood Relief Fund here.
Edit: Two more ways to help! Online Handmade Auction with proceeds to the flood relief - details here; and a generous bunch of Etsy sellers are donating proceeds from selected purchases - details here.
