As you may have heard, we are in a drought! For weeks now I have prayed for rain & God has said "NO". It's not traumatic for me since I live in an arid climate anyway & am used to this. I do feel bad for the farmers though & there will be more food shortages which will only hurt the poor. I have just a few garden plants which I water EVERY SINGLE DAY. Last night, I was SO WEARY, & prayed again for my withering trees & grass, "Lord, PLEASE send some rain tonight & please don't let it blow into my garage (as it usually does, even beneath the closed garage door)". My son returned home & had deposited belongings right in front of the garage door. I was so tired & didn't even want to shut the garage door which I leave open after a hot day to let the garage cool off. Anyhow, this morning I awoke to a lovely watered yard & garden. I didn't even hear the rain! And, when I peeked in the garage, there was my son's belongings,nice & dry in front of the open garage door & not a drop of rain had blown inside! Thank You Jesus!!! I continue to pray for the farmers. Love & prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia P.S. Keep praying! God hears!
