Manna from Heaven

In the past several months, we have watched rain clouds gather to the east, west, south and north of the ranch. We could smell the rain, see the lightening and hear the thunder. Neighbors were reporting various amounts of rainfall. No measurable rain was falling in our gauges. I tried to backorder rain from our local feed store but was told to stand in line. Windshield wipers were replaced due to caliche dust ragging out the blades. And then it happened. We were blessed with an average of 2.70" of rain September 13-16, 2012!! Giddy like kids on Christmas morning, we sloshed through mud puddles and checked rain gauges. On Sunday afternoon I walked through the den and found Sam sitting quietly in his chair. I asked, "What are you doing? Aren't the Cowboys playing today?" Sam replied, "Shhh. I'm watching it rain." I sat down and remarked, "Manna from Heaven." To which Sam commented, "Yes ma'am, that it is. That it is." Thank you, Lord, for the beautiful blessing of rain!!
