"He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills."
~ Psalm 147:8 NIV
What a nice winter we had to live through here in Iowa! Very little snow. Not much to shovel. Drive in. Slip and slide on when we walk.
And as we head into and arrive at spring, we have had record-breaking high temperatures for this time of year here and across the United States.
But with the lack of snow comes the concerns about maybe not enough water and moisture in our soils as we move into the growing season.
And then came the last few days. Here comes some much needed spring rains! Some of it came often. Some of it came fast. But water our parched earth it did!
As I saw it come. Walked in it. I can't help but thank God for once again taking care of our daily needs!
Do we deserve His generous watering? No, like everything else He gives to us. We don't deserve much or anything of what He gives. But the blessings keep on coming from His wonderful and caring hand.
Do we have to worry about our future? And what is coming tomorrow? No, because He has always taken care of us in the and tomorrow are no different. Will we need more water and rain before our crops are harvest? Yes, we will. But God will take of those needs as well.
Dear God in Heaven, we collectively thank You for taking such good care of us. Thank You for both the sunshine and the rain. Thank You that You know what we need and bless us so much. We have more blessings than we can count! We bless Your Holy Name. Amen.
