Genesis 7:11-16, Genesis 10:1

April showers bring May flowers.  I couldn’t help but think that with a recent rain.  It was nothing like the rain in 2008 that caused flooding here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  But that flood wouldn’t compare to the flood in Noah’s time.

Imagine Noah and his family on the ark with all of those animals.  Maybe there was some initial fear, but surely they ended up feeling like God gave them eight free tickets to a floating zoo with animals from around the world!  They wouldn’t have to think about crowds.  If one or two of Noah’s family wanted to look at a certain animal, chances are the other family members would be elsewhere, perhaps looking at other animals they’d never seen before.

Maybe Noah shared animal tales later with his grandkids.    What an amazing adventure Noah and his family had!
