What a gorgeous day it turned out to be and then about 7:00 this evening there was a sudden Sound of Abundance of Rain. The rain barrel filled up from the down spout, the wind blew the rain right across the verandah and soaked the cushions I had put on the swing so they wouldn't get wet if it rained. :) It came down in torrents! We'd just gotten back from our walk to the mail box or we would have been soaked! Sounds kind of fun actually!
The verse above from 1 KINGS 18:41-45 is the culmination of Elijah sending Ahab up 7 times to see if there was rain. Finally, Elijah said to Ahab, let's get going for there is a Sound of Abundance of Rain. This story is a great reminder that we have to keep looking for our blessings. When our lives seem dried up, God's still in control and still blessing. We just need to look for it. LISTEN! DO YOU HERE THE RAIN?
