Showers of Blessing

I know you have heard a lot of whining from me about the drought this summer. 

Yesterday I woke to the beautiful sound of water running through the rain gutter! There couldn't possibly be a more lovely symphony! I could almost imagine the crunchy grass giving a sigh of relief at the refreshing rain.

Best of all, this wasn't just the 1/4 inch shower that dries up an hour later. By this morning we had almost 2 1/2 inches of rain in the gauge! Thank you, Lord!

I sure won't ever ask to repeat a hot dry summer like this one, but maybe we need a year like this occasionally to not take little things, like rain drops, for granted. I planned to hang my laundry out today, but you won't hear a murmur of complaint if I have to run my dryer (for the first time in months.)

  4. Wonderful! So glad you got some rain..the weather here in TN has been so hot and humid little rain and well my garden died this year. We lost one whole garden to hail, then we replanted and lost it all to heat!
    So glad to hear you got some rain!

  8. Glad you got some water, we have more than enough. The farm boss drove through water as deep as the hood of his truck (do not try this at home) the other night after evactuating the rental/apartments they manage. He told me yesterday there were cars floating in the parking lot.
