We have received 9 – 10 inches of rain from Saturday night through Monday evening. At last look at my bucket it had about 9 inches in it and we received a bit more after that.
I am including some pictures. The Creek has gotten as high as I ever remember, and it got higher than any of the past five years we have lived here for sure.
These pictures are in our backyard.
The following pictures are down stream at our swimming area, and called the Whirlhole, and the road down to the hole.
“The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.” Proverbs 21:1
That is how it is on the banks of Flat Creek.
Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross
Jesus, keep me near the cross, There a precious fountain, Free to all, a healing stream, Flows from Calvary’s mountain.
Near the cross, a trembling soul, Love and mercy found me; There the Bright and Morning Star Shed His beams around me.
Near the cross! O Lamb of God, Bring its scenes before me; Help me walk from day to day with its shadow o’er me.
Near the cross! I’ll watch and wait, Hoping, trusting ever, Till I reach the golden strand, Just beyond the river.
In the cross, in the cross Be my glory ever, Till my raptur’d soul shall find Rest beyond the river. A-MEN.
