Higher ground

Reelfoot Lake and the Mississippi River were at flood stage this past weekend.  This had some of the little critters scrambling for a dry spot on higher ground.

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Tho some may dwell where these abound,
my pray’r, my aim, is higher ground.

~Johnson Oatman, Jr.
