Well, It is Official Now

It is official now.  The national news media has proclaimed that over one half of the nation is in a drought.  That would include Missouri, Arkansas, and that includes my little ole place on Flat Creek.  There are many States which are suffering from drought, heat, and in the West there are fires.  In some places there are floods.

The thing is there is not a thing we can do about there being no rain.  All we can do is what we have always done; keep on keeping on.  We can also pray and ask God for mercy, and we could ask Him for rain to bring honor and glory to His name.

After all; which is more important: that we have rain, or that the name of the Lord be glorified?  Your answer to those questions will show the attitude of your heart.

All I ask is that you think about it for a while.

We are in a drought; there is no doubt in my mind about that.  We do need a good rain.  Maybe it is time to do some serious praying about our own condition.

    It’s most likely of no mental help, but, this is not the first nor will it be the last time the U.S. has/will suffer through a nation wide drought. The last time was some 55 or 60 years ago. In the mid/late 50’s it was every but as bad or worse than today.
    Think happy thoughts,

      Thanks for your thoughts. My thoughts were that we need to consider that there is only One who can control our weather, and many times it is related to how we relate to Him. Right now that does not look too promising for our Nation.
      Thanks again.
      T.A.
