Of droughts and flooding rains

Dorothea Mackellar's famous poem describes Australia as a land of droughts and flooding rains.

She wasn't wrong.

After 10 years of drought, parts of Australia are now being inundated by flood.  It was only a year or so ago that other parts of Australia were so dry they suffered through our worst bushfires ever.

What a crazy country.

Lucky we love it.

For those of you who pray, please keep those affected by the floods in your prayers.  Even when the water starts to recede, it is going to be a HUGE job to clean up from this.

If you are able to donate you can do so here.
