Rain Changes Everything

Hurricane Edouard brought much needed rain to the west side of Houston this past week. Since it was a minimal hurricane for our area of the world, all I can do is rejoice in what it did for our flowers, vegetables and shrubs. The earth just seemed to cry out with joy this afternoon from the slow and steady ground soaking we have received. As you can see, we got just a little over 4 inches of liquid gold from heaven. None the less, it was more than enough to rejoice over this hot Texas day in August!

OH I rejoice with ya girl! We had a flood warning yesterday! 3 inches of blessed rains and today it is 30 degrees cooler. I have the windows OPEN! Your description of the Lord's gifts are so straight on. The plants look yummy! My laundry got caught in the downpour on the line, now it is so soft. hugs
