THE BLESSING of RAIN

Here in the Texas Panhandle, rain is something we always seem to be hoping and praying for.  It's been a very dry year here, but last week, those prayers were answered, and we received the most wonderful two days of rain.  What a Blessing from God!

There use to be this funny little character on greeting cards and posters named Ziggy.  On one of my favorite posters, all you could see was Ziggy's back and he was looking at the most beautiful sunrise.  The words below the picture read, "Go, God, Go!"  That's how it makes me feel when we receive rain...."Go, God, Go!"  Then, "Thank you, God, Thank You!!!"
