This morning it rained... and the first thing that came to mind was, "Oh, no! Not now!". Well, recently I have been complaining of the rain - not because I don't like it (I love it), but each time it rains water seeps into the bed rooms and the living room. I end up having to mop up a lot of water on and on and on... well, as long as the rain lasts.
But this morning the rain was a real blessing. Although it rained, there was no leak and no mopping to be done because of it. On the other hand, it cooled the day, so much so, when we had a freak power loss for a couple of hours, we didn't feel the loss of power much. It still remained cool indoors.
Thank you Lord for the rain, and for watering the earth anew with your refreshing love.
