I Think It’s Almost Time

As far as we know, none of the eight survivors of the worldwide Flood in Genesis 6–9 lost a notebook about 4,000 years ago. But that doesn’t keep us from imagining! If Noah’s son Shem had kept notes and sketches about building the Ark, what might he have said? Let’s find out . . .


It’s been a tough week.

Grandpa Lamech died about five years ago, and now we’ve lost Great-Grandpa Methuselah. He told us not to be sad for him because he’d lived a long life and was looking forward to resting from this world’s labors. He believed that he would see his father again, along with everyone else who has loved and served the Creator.

Loading Up the Ark

We’ve got seven days before the Flood starts. We’ll be working from sunup to sundown loading all the food and securing the animals, and tomorrow will be just as busy. Thanks to Japheth, we’ve got plenty of food, and Ham has examined the Ark from stern to bow. This is one incredible ship.

Still, I’m just a little scared. Okay, I’m a lot scared. I’ve never been through a flood before. No one has—not like this one is supposed to be.

But I also know God will take care of us. He always has. He always will.
