For an early Father’s Day gift my son Timothy and his wife Sarah and their children, Naomi, Josiah, Eli, and Lydia got me three new trees to plant. They brought them down to me on Saturday. Timothy helped me plant them. One is a Tulip tree, one is a Red bud, and the other is a Crape Myrtle.
I had watered them this morning; pretty early, a little while before the sun rose over the hill to the East of our house. After breakfast I went and built some fence to keep cattle from coming in through out back yard. When I finished that I came to the house and cooled off, sat on the front porch, feeling the coolness of the cloud cover moving in, with some wind.
After I came in the rain came, and it fell rather heavily, and for a period of thirty minutes or more. It slacked off a bit, but as I write it started pouring again. Praise the LORD for the rain.
