Love the Rain

Leviticus 26:34 "I shall give you rains in their season, so that the land will yield its produce and the trees of the field will bear their fruit."


Today I am thankful for the rain! We don't see alot of that in Texas this time of year. It tends to be more hot and dry in July around here. However, the last couple of weeks we have seen quite a bit of rain. We even experienced a slight drop in temperatures and humidity for a few days. What a treat!

Our yard is green without any assistance from the sprinklers, too. We have a few more weeds since the rain seems to have encouraged them to grow, but I'm just going to be thankful for them anyway because they are green, green, green. Instead of dry and brown. Woo-hoo!

As I am out in the yard this weekend pulling up all those GREEN weeds, I'm going to be thankful for the rain, rain, rain!! :)

Happy Thankful Thursday!

Have to smile! This week I gave thanks for the sun. Living in the Pacific Northwest, we get a lot of rain, or at least cloudy days. So, having sunshine and warm days are praiseworthy! Isn't it wonderful, though, that God gives us (and the land) just what is needed when it is needed? Praise Him.

Got to love rain when it is needed. We are having a heat wave in New England. All winter we pray for heat and now folks complain about it, but all is good. I am just grateful for window a/c's :)

A wonderful thing to be thankful for! We have had a rainy summer so far here in MN - which has been a real blessing. I've been on bedrest (premie watch) since before Memorial Day and it's been so nice to to have rain to water my grass and flowers and few times a week.

Hi Melanie,

Hugging you and happy TT.
