Photo taken on June 7, 2010 of Big Cottonwood Creek which caused flooding and damage.
We spent last night and early morning hours, sandbagging to help prevent flooding after an unexpected water level rise in the river we live nearby . The flooding came without warning. The water was swift and powerful. Hundreds of volunteers showed up to help contain the powerful deluge of water and debris. While we were able to contain and protect some homes, unfortunately many homes were flooded and damaged.
How symbolic this powerful surge of flooding water is to the turbulent times in which we live. The rising flood waters can be compared to sin, wickedness and filth that is rising and covering the whole world. Joseph F. Smith back in the early 1900's made this comment. "Today a flood of iniquity is overwhelming the civilized world".
Once sin and chaos has been unleased, it is difficult to contain. Pornography, Immorality Abuse, Addiction are destroying those found caught in the path of this flood water and are carried downstream. There is only one way to stand firm and steadfast and safe against the path of destruction. Our faith and reliance on the Savior.
