I live in a drought-stricken area. The creeks and dams are dry, and tank water has been gone. Here is a recent update from about 15 minutes ago:
It’s currently raining up here. Lots of thunder. This picture is the view from my verandah. The grey haze is the rain.
Pray it lasts. We need about a week’s worth of constant rain to fill the dams, creeks, and water tanks. If it only lasts an hour, it will just be soaked up by the hungry ground, like a sponge. And in two hours, you won’t know it rained. So please pray that the rain will be a steady constant rain for days.
My son Eli is looking out the window, amazed. He is only 4; he does not remember seeing this much rain. The thunder is very loud.
And now it is hailing. This picture is again from my verandah. If you look carefully, you can see the white streaks as the hail falls to the ground. And of course, LOTS of hail on the ground. And lots of thunder. Let’s hope this does not blow over. Lorien (6) and Eli (4) are sitting looking out the window, fascinated.
Thank you for all your prayers!
