Thank you and a prayer request.

I just wanted to thank all of my dear blogging friends from around the world who have left comments or sent me emails asking if we have been affected by the terrible floods that are happening in North Queensland. Thank you so much for thinking of us and my fellow Queenslanders. We are so lucky in our corner of the state as we have avoided most of this terrible rain and flooding. However, more than 22 towns in North Queensland have been cut off or flooded across an area larger than France and Germany, with more than 200,000 people affected.

The main areas that have been flooded are Rockhampton, Emerald, St George, Theodore, Dalby, Chinchilla and Bundaberg.

Flood waters are expected to reach nine metres (30 feet) today and peak at 9.4 metres on Wednesday, threatening thousands of homes.

So, as you can see, things are not looking good for our friends in the North so if you could please keep them in your thoughts and prayers I am sure it would be appreciated. 

Thank you again for your kind messages-I truly appreciate your concern and friendship.

Blessings and best wishes always,
