We've been waiting for seven long years for a rain like this one. We're measuring the rain now in inches rather than in hundredths-of-an-inch! Our land, and us with it, have been suffering from severe drought for seven years. We are far, far behind in our ground moisture and our average annual rainfall is only 11-12" so you can imagine how parched we've been. But this past week, we've been showered upon. Rained upon. Poured upon! What a blessing from God. I was in town today looking at some greeting cards when an older gentleman strolled in with a smile. The clerk asked him if it was still raining outside and he answered, "Yes, it's still raining! It's holy water! We've prayed for this a long time."
I couldn't agree more! It thrilled my heart to hear those words, Holy Water -- and it is.
