We are getting rain! I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm thankful for the rain. Rain is essential to our lives. Without it, we could not live. I live in a forested area that requires lots of water - we're prone to forest fires. This is morel mushroom season.
The rain (and heavy snows in the winter) contributes to lots and lots of mushrooms. The mushrooms feed the deer and elk - and people. Tourists come from all over to look for the fungi. The tourists buy the products that my husband sells to the stores. THAT gives us a weekly paycheck, which in turn, feeds our family.
When the Lord brings rain into my life, I sometimes grumble. I don't always trust in His plan. But in the end, He shows Himself to be all knowing, all loving, and all powerful.
I trust God.
So, today, I'm simply thankful for the rain that brings blessings.
