So running errand and shopping has been a real challenge for everyone around here. The rain today was absolutely torrential. We flood here often in the spring so no one is shocked that the Ohio River is 27ft above flood stage. We all had hoped it would move quickly and leave us by Easter.
I could actually hear the creek from the deck today. Boy was it was roaring,the current was incredibly strong. It didn't take long before all of our sink holes were over flowing and creating new creeks all over our back property. Our little Hopewell Creek became a mighty river today.
The fun part will be after it all recedes and we can go and search for brand new treasures that will be left behind.
As I stood there thinking about how all of our outdoor plans will be ruined,like our annual confetti egg hunt. As I stood there I began to remember what Easter is all about and the suffering that Jesus went through for us.The incredible sacrifice he made for all of us.Our plans seemed so small and trivial in comparison.
So a rainy day is just fine. Any day that we can come together as families,rain or shine is a good day!

Have a wonderful Easter. He has risen!
