We've Had Some Rain

The Houston area has experienced terrible flooding this week. 

We escaped the worst of it here in Needville.

Queenie drinking water from a puddle in the yard.

The rain was heavy, starting on Sunday evening and continuing into Monday.

What we were left with when it stopped were a few puddles in the backyard that will take several days to dry out.

The garden got a good soaking, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but could cause the tomatoes to split.

All the fresh water coming down the river will mess up the fishing in Matagorda for at least a couple of weeks.

But, these are just minor inconveniences, I know. 

Some people have puddles in their homes.

Some people's cars got a soaking from the high water.

And some people will never fish again because they lost their lives.

We have nothing to complain about.

What we have is every reason to thank God for keeping us safe and to ask Him to comfort those who have lost so much. 


  1. That is so true. Love the photo of sweet Queenie!

  2. Well said. Putting things into perspective is always a good thing to do.

    1. I feel for the people who are flooded out. Many of them are repeat flood victims from last year.

  3. I saw some of the devastation on the news...it's absolutely horrible. I am so glad you didn't get it as bad as some of the other areas. One a lighter note, the design in that chicken's feathers is gorgeous!

    1. Even though we are fine here in Needville, the Colorado River is on the rise and out of its banks in Matagorda where our trailer is. We moved the trailer out yesterday just to ease our minds.
