like meny blokes accross this great country, I had been watching the flood reports on the tv as you would watch a movie series. The reality for me was I live close to some of the flooded areas and am fimilar with the land scape to know how bad it was getting. like many other blokes I felt helpless and wanted to do something to help in a practical way. Wanting to do the right thing I regestered as a Volunteer on the web to see where best to help. No responce till a mate of mine found one of his mates was in trouble so we planned for a day of cleaning up.
I was shocked at the mess and the smell of the slop when it was stired up, but encourage but the ammount of work that had already been done in the streets and communities in such a short time.
To give some time was my small way to encourage those doing it tough as giving a donation of any size was not a option as work had been slow the past year and was not looking that promising. God has ways beyond ours though as I was to find out. Turns out this bloke we whent to help has several properties and was greatfull for our help, when he found out what I did has offered me some reno work, that if it works out will give me work for some months, just when I was wondering what to do.
For me the message is not to try to make big planns for our future but be ready for serving God in any way we can. God will bless us as we need and more.
Bless all the people suffering by this flood and do what we can to shine for God who provides all our needs.
