Noah's Ark (and quick OOTD)
I guess I don't talk about it much on the blog, but I'm a Christian (and proud to be :)). Yesterday we went to visit "Noah's Ark", a real full-size replica of the Ark that Noah built, commissioned by God. Why was this replica built? (Quote from the website:) "It was built by Johan Huibers, a contractor from a small village in the province of North Holland. In 1992, he dreamt that waves from the ocean washed over the Netherlands during a storm. The dream was followed by even more signs, meaning he had to rebuild the Ark. However, this time the Ark was not meant to save people from a global flood as Noah did 4,000 years ago, but to tell people that there is a God who loves us, and that He has a plan for our lives"
I cannot tell you how impressive it was to see that Noah built all of this, without the modern tools we have now. And even now, it took the builders 4 years to construct this replica. It is 30 metres wide (98 ft and 5 something inches), 23 metres high (75 feet and 5 something inches), and 135 metres long (442 ft 10 inches)! It has really shown me once again how great God is, and how lucky I am to know Him in my life.
If you're ever in the Netherlands, do visit! You can find more information on www.arcofnoah.org or www.arkvannoach.com.

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”
