Update/ "Unanswered Prayer"

We heard the first rumblings just before the evening news began. Then the gentle tapping on the windowpanes. Inevitably we rush to the windows, just to see it - and so we did. Sure enough - rain. Glorious rain!

Later, I huddled under the covers watching as lightening flashed into the darkness. I love the sights and sounds of a thunderstorm in the nighttime hours. It is comforting to be inside our cozy home while the storm rages on the outside. I imagine myself tucked safely against the Father's side.

We woke to a clear, windy, sparkling morning. The rain gauge reported the good news - 3/4"!

And we give thanks.

"Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; And give heed to the voice of my supplications~ In the day of my trouble I shall call upon Thee. For Thou wilt answer me. There is no one like Thee among the gods, O Lord; Nor are there any works like Thine."
Psalm 86: 6-8
