Sunday Showers

On Sunday morning we were greeted with a sound that was uncommon yet very familiar. One of my favorite sounds on earth...rain softly falling on the roof.  There was no thunder and lightening show this time.  Just a slow and steady rain that lasted throughout most of the day.

View through my windshield as I returned home from the corner store.
(Well, we call it that even though it is several miles and many corners away!)
 There was not just a few puddles on the sides of the road, but the ditches were filling with the bounty of the clouds overhead.  The new pond is actually finally seeing some water!  Jim says we are about a third of the way to full.  The grand kids can hardly wait for it to have enough water for fishing!

What a glorious sight!
Thank you, Lord, for the showers of blessing!

Are there any among the idols of the nations who give rain?
Or can the heavens grant showers?
Is it not Thou, O Lord our God?
Therefore we hope in Thee,
For Thou art the one who hast done all these things.

Jeremiah 14:22 (NAS)
