My Obsession with Rain

The rains this week have been so nice! Two inches Monday. Nearly an inch last night. More on the way.

Some of you who read my blog might wonder why rain is so important to me. Well, in the part of Texas in which we live -- we have been in a drought that is entering its third year. The lake from which we get our drinking water is 20 feet low. That's right -- 20 feet! The stock tanks (normally full this time of year as we head into summer) are near empty. And summer is not even here yet!

So, while flash floods are in the forecast (and I'm surely not hoping for anyone to be flooded out), I'm praying, "Lord, bring us a gulley-washer -- especially up in the watershed region for Lake Bridgeport."

Two years ago this week, I accepted the position of preaching minister for the Decatur church. I feel like I'm still on my honeymoon. I love you, Decatur church!

I agree. I love the rain. Especially when the fire ants mound. I like to see the enemy so I can attack. I use nematodes to eat their babies and when it rains, they hunt, so bye, bye ant babies just in time for Easter. Could you pray for a short dry Easter though. Soggy eggs stink!

It doesn't seem like it's been two years already. Time flies when you're having a good time. You and Beverly have been and remain a blessing to my family, our church and community. I look forward to what the future will bring.

I praise God both for the rain and bringing you into our family.
