A Wife Loved Like The Church

Rise and shine and give God the glory, glory!

Posted on: June 14, 2008

As many, if not all, of you know, the Midwest is experiencing some major flooding. Yesterday morning Jonathan was able to get out and take some pictures of the surrounding area. While these shots are only about a mile-mile and a half from our house, thankfully we won’t see any flooding due to high elevation and the river not being close by. Crazily enough, the authorities are saying that we can expect up to at least 5 more feet by tomorrow (Sunday).










Keep in mind, Jonathan took these at 5 am yesterday morning. Already in many of these areas the water is almost waist deep. Fletcher and Jonathan have spent a lot of time sandbagging but the waters are projected to go over the sandbags. Now, our efforts are going towards helping people evacuate from their homes.

In all this, I can’t help but think of God’s promise to Noah, to all people, that He will never again flood the whole earth. I mean, just seeing the water rise as much as it is is pretty scary stuff. But imagining everything, trees, cliffs, mountain tops, being covered in water is overwhelming.

One funny thing to note: Each morning when Julia wakes up I sing her the “Arky-arky” song.

God told Noah there’s going to be a floodie, floodie.
God told Noah there’s going to be a floodie, floodie.
Get those animals (clap!) out of the muddie, muddie,
Children of the Lord.

So, rise and shine and give God the glory, glory.
Rise and shine and give God the glory, glory.
Rise and shine and (clap!) give God the glory, glory,
Children of the Lord.

God told Noah to build him an arky, arky.
God told Noah to build him an arky, arky.
Build it out of (claps!) gopher barky, barky,
Children of the Lord.

(Chorus)

The animals, they came in, they came in by twosies, twosies,
The animals, they came in, they came in by twosies, twosies,
Elephants and kangaroosies, roosies,
Children of the Lord.

(Chorus)

It rained, it rained for forty nights and daysies, daysies,
It rained, it rained for forty nights and daysies, daysies,
Almost drove poor Noah crazy, crazy,
Children of the Lord.

(Chorus)

The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy,
The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy,
Everything was fine and dandy, dandy,
Children of the Lord.

This is the end of, the end of our story, story,
This is the end of, the end of our story, strory,
Everything was hunky dory, dory,
Children of the Lord.

(Chorus)
