to the people of toowoomba
and surrounding area,
you have our prayers, tears and condolences.

that you and your families will be safe
in the coming days.

  1. Hi Carol, you are one of the loveliest people I know, you do everything so tastefully and beautiful.
    Yes I got wet in bed. I always sleep with the windows open and only very rarely does the rain come inside. Well I slept so soundly, that when I woke up to go to the bathroom I put the donna back and it was wet.Got on the floor and it was soaked..it came in the windows..LOL I am such a nut. My daughter says I am all brain and no common sense...so true. It was a shock but no we are dry...on a hill. Gosh there are so many to feel sorry for. I can't stand to look at the floods. It brings back terror from my childhood and that was a long long time ago.
    Ray goes out to take the photos. He goes early in the morning and paddles through the water. I am hoping Frances and her family are okay on the south side.I will post some more pics tomorrow. Had to give Shiarn a birthday today. God watches over us. xxx

  2. Lovely post Carol. Hope you all continue to stay safe.

  3. *Hugs* back. Will continue praying for you and everyone affected by this. God Bless.

  4. Oh dear me. I do hope you and everyone you know are safe. Thinking of you. x

  5. Heard on the news to day that it will keep on rising until thursday. I tought of you at once. Sending you all of my best thoughts.

    I also want to give you an award, since I am so happy to have found you, but did not see it fit to be on comments on this post.

    I will save it for later... :)

  6. Hello Carol. such a lovely post it is, all those who suffers from the flood wish them peace in their lives, I understand the whole thing very easily because we too had flood in last July and August and it shook the complete country... how miserable and disaster it was... May God bless His shadow of peace and safety on them... Ameen.

  7. I'm watching it all in disbelief from the safety of a slightly soggy Melbourne. And I worry about all of you there. I hope this passes quickly. So much to be done to get peoples lives back. Thanks for letting us know you are ok.

  8. Sending you my best thoughts. Hope you stay safe.

  9. Hi Carol,
    Hope you're still safe. It's so sad to see all the footage on TV. Thoughts are with you all.

  10. I'm happy to hear that you are ok!!

  11. Dear Carol, I'm happy to hear that you and your family are fine! It looks so terrible and unbelievable...you are in my thoughts all the time! Love Teje

  12. Lovely post, Carol. Keeping everyone in my thoughts. Take care.

  13. Dear Carol, we've been watching the floods on the news, it looks so terrible. So glad that you and yours are safe! My thoughts and prayers to those who are not... Anja
