Welcome to Tuesday in my little corner of the world and it is with a sad heart that I read about and hear about the devastation overnight in the Queensland floods - lives lost and people missing - please hold the State of Queensland close and let's hope that the rain eases soon.

The above pages will give you an insight into what is happening and how dire the circumstances are and yet over the other side of the country the people of Western Australia are facing bushfires.

Rescue teams are working very hard on both sides and help is arriving for these people but it will be a long time before things are anything like normal.

My thoughts are with the American people as they face the trauma of the shooting in Tucson, Arizona and the anger and frustration this brings to them.
Praying that Representative Gibbons makes a full recovery and holding the families of those who lost their lives close in my heart.

I am sharing with you something I received in an email this morning and which brought some peace to my troubled heart and I hope you enjoy reading an explanation of Angels by children.

Angels Explained By Children

I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold.
Gregory, age 5

Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it
Olive, age 9

It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die.  Then you go to Heaven, and then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.
Matthew, age 9

Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else...
Mitchell, age 7

My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science.
Henry, age 8

Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows!!!
Jack, age 6

Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead.
Daniel, age 9

When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath again,  somewhere there's a tornado.
Reagan, age 10

Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy.  If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter.
Sara, age 6

Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter.
Jared, age 8

All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it.
Antonio, age 9

My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth.
Ashley, age 9

Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. And if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it.
Vicki, age 8

What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them.
Sarah, age 7 

Love and hugs,
