    Default Positive thought/prayer request for Germany

    Heya,

    it's me again. Some of you might have seen in the news. Germany is suffering from horrible rainfalls and floodings. The firefighters and many other volunteers are working hard to limit the damage and try to get the water under control but it seems like fighting the windmills.

    My parents live not too far from a small river and they have already water in their cellars. My mum's boyfriend came home from work early to pump it out... it must be awful! I would have never imagined that the water travels so far, naive as I am!

    Please send prayers and positive thoughts to all those affected by the floods, I'd really appreciate that!

    Hugs,

    Steffie

    Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people; some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didnít come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.

    Wow, that's a lot of water. Hopefully everyone will be okay and no lives lost.

    It's a shame they can't send it over here where I live. Our average rainfall in New Mexico is only 8 inches per year. Two years ago we only had a little over 4" for the whole year, last year we had right at 5". In the last 8 months we have only had .9 inches of rain ... not even an inch. I do believe this will be another record setting year for us for lack of rain.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    positive thoughts and whises for sunshine comming your way!


    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    I have NEVER seen the water so high. The grey "road" in the background is a BRIDGE. It was build really high and now the waters nearly touch the road... that's pretty scary!!! I didn't believe my ears when my mum told me about it and I asked her to take a picture. Luckily they made the river wider not too long ago. The garden of my mother is completely flodded as well. But, from what I hear, at least no one died ... that's something to be thankful for already!

    By the way: This is a normal level of the river to compare:

    Amazing the things you hear about on here. We live in Germany and this is the first I've heard of flooding here. Hope they stay safe and dry!

    Praying for safety for all effected. It seems the world is under attack by Mother Nature - flooding, too much wind and snow, earthquakes and wild fires. Drastic weather changes around the world.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Seeing the "before and after" photos really shows what's going on, doesn't it? We will be praying for your family and their neighbors.
