This Thursday I am thankful for RAIN!! Yes, that wet, miserable stuff that tends to ruin any outside plans. I am thankful for it.
As I sit here at my com puter I can hear the steady stream of raindrops hitting the many trees in our backyard and it is so comforting, relaxing and beautiful!
The Lord knew what He was doing when He created rain huh? I'm thankful that our VERY parched lawn and plants are getting some much needed norishment and that I can enjoy the weather without having to go out in it.
I'm also thankful that as a child of God I too have the opportunity to feel the much needed showers of blessings that He send into my sometimes parched life. I'm thankful that when the heat of life seems like it's going to bake me, He looks down and at just the right time, send just the right kind of "shower" to keep me alive.
What a mighty and merciful God we serve!!
"And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing."
