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.

It’s Raining Outside

I am glad it’s not raining inside.  Now that would be a fluke.  It is raining outside to water the grass, the gardens that are needing the rain, and the fields of so many farmers who are growing corn, and other foods.

The rain I am seeing is a slow, steady rain; which means it will soak in and have less run-off.

At a time when people in North Dakota are experiencing flooding and people in Eastern Missouri and all along the Mississippi; it just seems odd to be needing rain; but that is the blunt of it.

Thank YOU Almighty GOD for the rain.
