A (somewhat) honest look at what it's like to be a single, Christian woman in her mid 30s in Sydney who wants to remain true to the life that God has planned for her but doesn't want to let go of her dream of being in a relationship again and eventually being a wife and mother

-316 Photo updates - Wednesday 12th January 2011

I will get back to regular blogging soon. But it just seems irrelevant to muse about my lack of love life or various theories when there are much bigger things going on in my country. Thought I'd just share some photos tonight. The Brisbane river is predicted to peak tomorrow morning with up to 22 000 homes to be effected. Up to. Brisbane has an approximate population of about 2 million. If you feel led to here is the official flood relief appeal website. http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/donate.html.

Here's a link to the current flood map. http://www.google.com/crisisresponse/queensland_floods.html#map

Suncorp Stadium at about 3pm this afternoon. 

In a Brisbane suburb.

Sandbagging in the middle of the night
Gotta love the Aussie spirit of mateship even with the wildlife - a frog catches a ride with a snake. :)


  1. I'm sorry that there's a national disaster going on in your country right now. I'll definately pray about it.

  2. Thanks Elsie. Thankfully the waters didn't reach the predicted peak overnight and the rain has eased for a bit which means the water has had a chance to go down a bit. I think the areas effected were likened recently to an area the size of Texas but I'm not sure how accurate that is though.

    Now the waiting and clean up ( and rebuilding in some parts that got hit 2 weeks ago ) begins.
