Just a couple of posts ago I was enjoying a beautiful sunrise… today the river is swollen after LOTS of rain last night.
Remembering that the days are coming when the ice will pass away, and the still, heaviness of summer air will press down on the river, and a fisherman will remain… surrounded by peace…
The sun doing some painting over the Illinois River in Morris, IL. This may be my last post for a week or so. I will be in Haiti this week on a missions trip and will enjoy sunrises there! We will be ministering to widows and orphans with a team of talented high school students and adults. Until we “meet” again, have a wonderful week!
Happy 2016 everyone! Well, from the weather side of things, the end of 2015 looks a lot like the significant flooding we had about 7 months ago. December was unusually warm and ended with a wintry mix of ice pellets, followed by flooding rain. Due to our flight being cancelled, and the resulting backlog, I was not able to get to Haiti. We hope to go in May. This is a lonely tree wondering why the Illinois River is so high….again. Here’s to warmer times…. cheers!
I am leaving for a missions trip to Haiti on Dec. 28 and won’t return until after the new year, so here is my last post for 2015. Thank you WordPress family for your visits, your kind comments and for your encouragement. You are all an incredibly talented bunch! Looking forward to the journey with you in 2016. Happy New Year!
