Ain't no little drip drip here...

Yep, we have enough rain now,
thank you God.

I sure am glad that Noah went through the earth-covering drench and floods instead of me.
Still, some days here it seems like God is going for another flood.....

But God keeps His promises.
He has set the rainbow in the sky to remind us
that He will never flood the entire earth again....

c.1922 'After The Rain Song'

I think I'll go outside and look for one today!!

Just to make sure He hasn't changed His mind!!!

c.1919 'After the Shower'

Which is, of course, pure silliness.
God doesn't change His mind!

I know that other places around the globe have received scads more rain than we have here in the Rocky Mountains and foothills, in the form of
hurricanes and floods and tornadoes
and all sorts of weather-nasties that bring
 bucket-loads of water.

c.1908 'Any Old Port in a Storm'

whenever things happen to yourself 
or your friend down the street
it seems so much more immediate, more real
doesn't it?

My heart goes out to the many many people
that have lost their homes, and loved ones.

Well, that concludes my rain-filled blog of today!

"The older one gets the more one feels that the present must be enjoyed;
it is a precious gift.
Comparable to a state of grace."

-Marie Curie
