I would ask you all to say a prayer or two for those here in Australia affected by fires in Victoria and now New South Wales and floods in North Queensland.

Loss of life is growing, 25 confirmed and many still missing. 100's of homes and many thousands of acres of farming and bushland burned out.

While in Nth Qld they are under water again for the second time in a week. Thankfully the loss of life is nowhere near what it is down south.

Oh Midge,
I'm so sorry to hear the bad news from 'Down Under". Of course we'll keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. It is much worse now. The death toll is over 100 and still counting, over 750 homes and 330,000ha (which is more than double in acres).

Thankfully our families are safe but my heart aches for those in the affected areas. The stories are just too disturbing to talk about. There is one whole small town gone. They say it came so fast there was nowhere to go. It is going to take a long time for these people to recover - if ever.

All this while up north they are still under water. Some homes have been under for over a week and there is more rain coming. Thank you again for your prayers.

Midge

Nature can be so very cruel sometimes, but I heard also, that some of the fires were deliberately set!  That makes me ANGRY!  Thoughts and prayers going out for you all down under.  Am hoping and praying you get relief soon, and those culprits are caught and punished.    Sandy
