Last night one of our young parishioners prayed for rain.  When you are in a drought, prayer is welcomed. 

Today we woke to rain.  Then a bit of dry time.  And then extended rain for hours.  Our rain gauge showed 1.1 inches of rain.  Not a flood, but more than we have had in months.

So, even though the sky is overcast and grey, hearts are happy.  The crop will love the moisture.  Our grass will turn green.  And we will happily accept more showers of blessing!
