You have heard of being housebound, but only Noah’s family was Ark-bound. The song we sang in Sunday school talked about it raining for 40 days and 40 nights. It wasn’t until today that I realized Noah’s family was in the Ark for more than a year.

Genesis 8:13-16, “…On the first day of the new year, ten and a half months after the flood began…Two more months went by…Then God Said to Noah, ‘Leave the boat, all of you…'” New Living Translation

They were in the boat for 12 1/2 months! Can you imagine the smell with only one window and all of those animals? They didn’t have a shower either! We all have it easy compared to Noah!

Dear Father God,

Thank You for the rainbow that shows Your promise to never flood the earth again. Thank You for the seasons. Help me to be grateful for autumn, in spite of Ragweed.

In Jesus Name,
