Ravaging Water

Years ago when I was serving as a Missionary, I experienced the
flooding of the Mississippi River, beside which we lived at the time.
The water was so destructive, I will never forget the feeling that
the house might be torn from its foundation.

This picture was taken today in Canaan, Indiana;
actually not a lot of water compared to the previous experience
but reminded me of it.

Not the Mississippi, but it does look powerful and scary.

Water is one of the most destructive forces of nature.
Your background page is FANTASTIC! Great job Carol! :))

Not all memories are good ones, especially when the force of nature takes control.

Amazing what water can do both constructively and destructively. Beautiful image of rushing water. I can feel it pulling at me.
