I went out just before sunrise. The light of the sun was reflecting over the hill, from the sky above, yet was light enough to see.
In my ears I heard the air filled with a cacophony of birds singing to our Creator. Such a wonderful, marvelous, lovely sound to hear.
I cannot help but thank and praise the Lord for the beauty He has given to the crown of His creation. You and me.
I have already written of the rain which came yesterday. It was a real blessing, and we received an inch of blessings from heaven.
An hour or so after the rain had stopped I told my wife, Madge, that I was going to go speak to the buckets and find out how much rain we had received. I returned into the house and told her I had spoken with the buckets, and they had told me “It rained about an inch”.
You see, I had several buckets, out in the backyard. Some small, maybe less than a gallon, some medium size, about two gallons or so; and a couple of five gallon buckets. I had left all of them up where they would catch water. I had not really done it on purpose, but it had been done.
When I stuck my forefinger in the buckets, each of them told me the same thing. The water in each of the buckets came up to my first knuckle; and that is an inch. Buckets do speak if we will listen.
Having fun living on the banks of Flat Creek.
