This is a picture Hubz took from our house after a recent storm - the colour in the air was amazing, with a touch of sunlight, the double rainbow and dark clouds.....
The rainbow signifies a promise by God that He is not going to flood all the earth again
We had a lovely trip to the sea-side though it was wet but warm. I felt so happy to actually swim in the sea (I have long been too afraid to do so)
The trip home is usually 4 hours, this time it took 9 hours because of the road closes and detours due to the floods. Towns on the coast and inland are shut off. Farmers crops and animals have been destroyed.
It is a major disaster for Queensland.
Yesterday our city was wrecked by flash flooding, two lives have been lost and there are still others missing. Last night a nearby valley was being hurriedly evacuated and people were stranded on the top of their houses - this morning I hear there are 8 dead and another 72 missing.

I can't help but be sad
Life and Hope in that Rainbow are my Treasures today
Thanks Melody for hosting Tuesday Treasure - it does make a difference evaluating and writing about what I treasure....
