A blessing.

It was the rain, come gentle and soft on brittle brown grass. Mere mist, then soft shower, then finally, when all was softened to soak it up, the downpour.

And before our eyes the brown came green, the life blushed up, to take in light from above and thrive again.

Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew, As raindrops on the tender herb, And as showers on the grass.         -Deuteronomy 32:2

    2. Hi Wendy,
      That text just jumped out of the scripture and captured me this morning, especially since we just got our first rain after a drought stretching long. Thanks for visiting and commenting. God’s special blessings to you!

  1. With so much of the US facing drought conditions, just that moment gazing into that rain photo brought calm and refreshing. Beautiful!

  2. And I’m so looking forward to the raindrops and gentle pouring that will restore my yard [and the yards and farms nearby]. That our land will thrive again.

    Thank you. Lovely photos, good words, good Word.

  3. Oh, I love the rain – and pictures of it! So beautiful! And what a wonderful verse! It’s incredible to see what the rain does to the earth, then think about how He does that in us. Thank you so much for sharing!

  4. Hi Joanne,

  5. Hi Mary,
    I surely loved this one! Seems like you just got a bit more than you needed, in that bad storm… but I suppose that was the wind that caused all the trouble. Blessings to you!
