Grateful for Rain

These clouds were a welcome sight as we have been in need of rain.
Our pasture fields and yards are brown and our gardens must be watered to keep our produce growing.

Then, we saw this welcome sight.  We are praying for more rain.

Rain down on us.

We are grateful
"For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God."
Hebrews 6:7








Lord, not only rain down your physical rain, but help me to feel, to know, to hold onto Your Spirit.  When I accepted You as my Lord and Savior, You sent Your Holy Spirit to live within, to lead, to guide, to convict me, to convict us.  I know I have all I need.  You do not give some more and some less; it is up to us as we yield every single decision we make to Your will.  


We often pray for You to send Your Spirit down, but if we are born again, saved by the Blood of the Lamb, Your Spirit, wholly and entirely is within us.  You can't give more than All.  Help us to realize how to call upon Your Spirit, to use what You have given, already and fully, knowing we must draw close to You because You never leave us nor forsake us.  For that we are Ever Grateful.


Thank You for the rain, Thank You and Thank You.

Praise the Lord for rain! It has been really dry in Arizona, so (like you said) any clouds are a welcome sight! :)

Blessings,

Yes finally rain!!! It has been heavy but much needed. I wondered how you were doing with your garden in these last few dry weeks. Missy

Dad has been watering the big garden and we've been watering our raised beds as well. I didn't want to put too many pics of our garden so I've tried to not have e v e r y thing on. Putting up corn today. Have a wonderful day in the Lord. Thanks for reading.
