It’s been a long time since we’ve had a good soaking rain around here. The stock tank was beginning to look pitiful. Praise the Lord! We are getting the blessed rain needed! Isn’t this a pretty picture?!?
I went to
on Sunday with the primary purpose of taking down and packing up my parents’ Christmas
decorations. My St. Louis niece, Dr. Leslie, whom
I hadn’t seen in over a year, would also be in Dallas on a visit during this time. Between the
two of us, we got them all done ~ and stored away until next year ~ by noon on Monday!
She went back to
and I returned to the ranch yesterday afternoon. I had had it planned not to return
home until this morning. It all changed once I saw the massive storm predictions.
I drove through pouring down rain taking her to the airport and the drive back
to the Dallas house. Sheets of rain. But then it slacked up as I loaded the vehicle!
Another, Praise the Lord!
The rain was not bad on the way back home. Off and on it was heavy, but nothing like I experienced driving to the airport in
Dallas! Then, the closer I
got to the ranch, the less need for the windshield wipers!
As I came to the low water crossing, then began to climb the hill on the "house side", I prayed out loud:
Thank you, Dear God for getting me home safely.
Please, now let the bottom drop out! Amen!
It warms my heart when God answers prayers the way I'd hoped!

I hope those who are in need, are also getting the Blessed Rain!
