After the Rain

We have not seen the sun for several days, and have had quite a lot of rain.  While it makes gardening and other outdoor activities difficult, this arid land becomes parched very quickly in the summer, so we are thankful for every drop of moisture.  These last few days have brought us 1 3/4 inches of rain, but I am so happy to see the sun and a cloudless blue sky this morning!  Thank you, God, for the blessings of rain, and the sunshine that follows.

And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises,
A morning without clouds,
Like the tender grass springing out of the earth,
By clear shining after rain.

-2 Samuel 23:4

Truly the light is sweet,
And it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun.

-Ecclesiastes 11:7
