April’s Showers and May Flowers

We have been getting bunches of rain around here.  It is good to get, and I am sure ruins the plans of human ideas.  Let us be real though.  Without rain we perish.

Inches and inches of rain has fallen.  Flat Creek, out our back door is rising from last nights rainfall, and there is more on the way.  The creek is barely out of the banks.

I went down to look at an hour or so ago, and it is barely in the lowest spot which use to be part of our yard.  After the flooding of December 2015, I do not treat as part of the yard any longer.

April is almost over.  The many showers of April have fallen giving rise to hope which will bring prosperity for the ground, cattle, gardens, crops and life.  May flowers is the promise of beauty, peace, and prosperity.

Is it not wonderful how our Lord and God has blessed us with beauty and hope.  Have a great day ending April.  Be blessed in the month of May.

Blessed with Rainfall

I have been told that all of last year here in Southwest Missouri we received all of 10 inches of rain, and no more.  Also that since January of this year we have been blessed with over 14 inches of that sweet dew from heaven.  All praise to the One who gives it on the just and the unjust.

Just this past Thursday, April 18, we received over 3 inches.

Awoke this morning, a little later than usual, to a ground covered with frost, and 29 degrees.

Thank YOU Lord for YOUR bountiful blessings.

Another Day of…

Another day of sunshine?  Another day of rain?  Right now it is hard to tell.  I look out my office window here at 6:30 in the morning, and the sun does not seem to have made it into our valley yet.  It is partially cloudy.  We do need some rain.  That’s hard to believe after all the rain we received in April and May, but it is getting dry, and hard to work the soil.

Every day is a day to be thankful.  Being grateful, thankful and full of praise to our GOD is a part of the faithful Christian’s life.  He is what makes life worthwhile.  Without Him where would we be?

My conclusion for a day that is just beginning is…

Another Day of Grace.
