Water, water everywhere...

...but not a drop to drink.
When it rains around here it pours, and because of the field across the street we get a little more than our share of water.

Now the water prevailed over the Sauve property.

We thought that the leftover of Hurricane Ike was bad, this storm was much worse.

Now if you can look at this picture, and not feel some pity for our poor garden you are heartless!
We had just finished planting the tomatoes and some other seeds, when the deluge occurred, causing the helpless little plant to be completely, entirely, submerged under water. But we will....

"Trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding." Prov3:5

As the rain continued to pour down and eventually flood the road we found ourselves situated on an ever shrinking Island.

So we got our ever faithful Canoe out and started paddling around fixing different things.

Row, Row, Row your Canoe gently 'round the yard.

You sure had to duck to get under the fence.

Out in the back jungle.

We also had a small water fall where the debris had blocked up the fence.

The water has since then some what receded, but there is still a lot of damage done. Yet, we know that God is still in control, and that He will work everything together for our good and according to the purpose of His will.
