Rain!!! I woke up during the night with the forceful sound and faint smell of rain. We were finally visited with a much needed rain. I got up to close my window, so that I wouldnt awake in the morning all soaked :-), but dediced to leave it open since it was not coming in very hard.
In the morning, the whole air was veiled with a refreshing mist and the birds were loudly calling out, thanking the Creator who "giveth rain upon the earth and sendeth waters upon the fields"(Job 5: 10)
A verse from a Messianic Psalm says that Jesus would : " come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth"(Psalm 72:6)As we have faced some very hard trials and hearthaches as a family recently, we are so thankful that we have a Saviour that is there to see us through. His words in Scripture and his presence is truly like a refreshing rain upon us. Whenever we are discouraged, his "rain" falls on us to recharge us and inspire us to keep on keeping on. We are so thankful for His mercies bestowed upon us day by day.
