Thankful Thursday--Rain


I am so thankful for rain. I am writing this a day early, Wednesday, and we have had rain all day long at varying levels of intensity. Sometimes it has been a light steady rain and other times it has been a heavy rain with those big raindrops. I am so thankful for this rain because I know it is such a precious commodity. Just north of us in our very own state (GA) is a SEVERE drought. Our Governor is even asking the President for many of the northern counties to be declared a disaster area because they have only a month or two of drinking water left...maybe even less than that. And then there are the terrible fires out in California. Such terrible situations that could so easily be fixed with something as simple as rain and my little town is being covered in it. I would package up some of this rain if I could and send it to those who need it more if I could.

Thank you, Lord for the rain but I pray that you give the rain to those who so desperately need it.

Yes, there are so many areas that need rain. It is something to be thankful for--may God continue to bless those areas in drought...and especially for those in the California fires.

Praise God you have rain! I have read about your drought and having lived through a few myself as a former farm wife I can relate so well.

God is so good!
