Rain, Rain, please stay -
It has rained for two days in a row now. Good, heavy, blowing, strong, long rain. It's been wonderful....blowing through my soul and soothing the cracked earth, coming down heavy upon the green branches bowed by weight and creating small lakes of mud in the grass-less yard. Finally there is water underneath my bare feet when I walk outside on the pavement.
It hasn't rained like this since at last year (which is at least 6mo.). We are so thankful to see it and hear it, and revel in it. :) It is a great blessing, to be sure. We hope all of FL gets a lot!
With thankfulness to our God who gives forth the water to us!

~ Job 37: 5-6 ~
"God thunders marvelously with His voice;
He does great things which we cannot comprehend.
For He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth';
Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength."
~ Job 38: 25 - 28 ~
The Lord speaking to Job -
"Who has divided a channel for the overflowing water, or a path for the thunderbolt,
To cause it to rain on a land where there is no one, a wilderness in which there is no man;
To satisfy the desolate waste, and cause to spring forth the growth of tender grass?
Has the rain a father? Or who has begotten the drops of dew?"
~ Job 38: 34 -38 ~
The Lord revealing His Omnipotence to Job -
"Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, that an abundance of water may cover you?
Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, 'Here we are!'?
Who has put wisdom in the mind?
Or who has given understanding to the heart?
Who can number the clouds by wisdom?
Or who can pour out the bottles of heaven, when the dust hardens in clumps,
and the clods cling together?"
~ Job 41: 11 ~
The Lord speaks -
"Everything under heaven is Mine."
