Hi there and welcome to my world on Thursday - a hot day in Adelaide and we are forecast a week of very warm/hot days and possibly a shower or two.
Queensland on our north eastern coast line and inland is devastated with flood waters and still it is raining. At Rockhampton the river did not peak as high as they thought it may, but with more rain who knows what is ahead for that town,
Whole towns are being evacuated and people are being cared for in Centres established for that purpose. It is going to be a long and difficult time ahead for the people of Queensland and Northern New South Wales. There is also flooding on our West Coast - we sure are a land of "drought and flooding rains."
Dorothea Mackellar wrote a poem in 1904 at the age of 19 and I am sure I have shared it with you before, but will do so again as it is good to re-read often.
BIT by BIT
When the chaos seems unending
Clear away a little space
It will help to know that something
Has been put into its place.
Just the same when troubles hit you
Blocking up your stretch of road,
Concentrate on one small barrier
Leave a while the heavy load.
Bit by bit the chaos lessens,
Bit by bit a path is cleared
Till the mountain of your trouble
Is much smaller than you feared,
I shall be glad to climb into bed and read a while and hopefully experience sweet and peaceful sleep.
I have something else to share with you but that can wait until tomorrow.
Goodnight/Good morning and blessings abound for you wherever you are.
Love and hugs,
