The rains and the floods came for forty days… 

destroying the entire earth and all the life it sustained … All except for each animal, two of every kind, and one family. 

One family. 

These last few weeks, our family has endured the storms and floods. All without much to bring a smile to our faces. But as I see this Jesus character and read the Noah joke, I’m reminded that “a merry heart does good like a medicine,” and “the joy of the Lord is our strength.” 

I realize that well, yes, four weeks ago we needed an ark to survive these rains. I am honored to be able to say that much like that one family, we have not been destroyed, for we also “noah” guy! đŸ˜‰
