Overwhelmed and Overflowing

The Virgin River can overflow its banks with a small amount of rain or snow melt.

No, I am not wore out, although the seven day drive from Utah to Missouri was not easy.

I am overwhelmed. 

I am so overwhelmed with emotion that I can hardly stand it.  

There is so much in me that I cannot contain it. 

It is like a flash flood at Zion National Park.  
The river flows daily but there are times when, after a snow melt or a rain storm, the Virgin River swells and overflows its banks.

It feels great to be overwhelmed with awesome emotions. 
Joy unspeakable.  
Love uncontainable.  
Peace that passes all understanding.  
Kindness that makes the heart smile.
Goodness to restore hope.
