Yesterday brought us some refreshing rain! We had been hot and dry for so long that I thought this day would never come. We were sitting in church when it happened. The pastor was saying a prayer when we heard it...the rain pouring onto the tin roof of the sanctuary. Now, that is a sound that can only come from God! I think that I even heard some 'Praise the Lords' mixed in with the prayer and the rain. Today promises even more.
I thought that I would venture out this morning with my camera before the heavy rains come later on. I wanted to see if my thirsty plants enjoyed the showers of blessings. I believe that they did.
The knockout roses that had been languishing in the dry heat seemed to be singing a chorus.
The little pot of asparagus fern hummed along.
The writing spider listened intently to the concert.
It is amazing that the downpours didn't wash her away.
The loropetalum seemed to hold on to every drop that fell.
And every fall spider web appeared to be clothed in splendor.
The little mum seemed to jump for joy to finally have some cool, autumn temperatures!
Fall is finally here! "Praise God from whom all blessings flow."
