The Rains Came Down...

In James 5:17 it says that it did not rain on the land for three years and six months in I Kings 17. While it certainly has not been that long since it rained here in Alabama it kind of felt like it. It had been nearly a month since it last rained... but it finally rained yesterday. Yea! My yard and my car (which I apparently refuse to wash) really needed it.

I think Brun had fogotten what the rain sounded like because at 2:30 AM he decided to wake me up so that we could go out and see what the noise was. He had no interest in going outside but he apparently thought that I needed to wake up and see it for myself. So there we were standing in the doorway watching it rain in the dark. I was happy to see the rain but I would have much rather been asleep.

It rained for awhile Saturday night/Sunday morning and then again while I was sitting in church... which is probably why I thought of the scripture above. Unfortunately it stopped raining by Sunday afternoon... which would have really helped my nap. :-) We need some more rain so hopefully it will rain some more later this week.

I hope everyone is having a good week so far!

Yeah for rain! We've gotten a lot of it around here lately...We were supposed to get massive storms here tonight, but we got lucky and they pushed through to the south of us. I hate it when it storms and I'm home alone. Especially when tornados are involved!
