Queensland Floods

How amazing is this? This photo as below was taken in the flood waters near Dalby
 As below it is common for animals to help each other out
when disaster strikes. I guess it is a little touch of heaven because 
the bible says that the lion will lay down with the lamb.
Also out of adversity comes human resourcefulness and
compassion for each other and sometimes  it's the only time
we witness our God given courage and strength rise up
and God becomes someone we call out to. 
Psalm 91
Please pray for blessing to come from all of this. Sometimes natural disasters bring us back to reality and what is really important and it’s not in material
things but in our relationship with one another and more importantly with our Creator God .

Computer technician Armin Gerlach was visiting friends in the flood-hit town of Dalby, located in the state's south-east, last week when he spotted the unlikely pair.
"I felt amazement, I just couldn’t believe it," Mr Gerlach told ninemsn.
Mr Gelach said a friend who had been affected by many floods told him
animals often helped each other out during disasters.
"It's quite common when you have animals in floods or fires or disasters, they actually get together and don't do anything," he said.
"[My friend] has seen foxes and rabbits forget their hunting instincts during natural disasters," he said
