Sitting here out on my front porch on this breezy August afternoon makes me so thankful for the summer that we have had this year. Yes it was an unusually wet one. Some days I wanted to just sing the song "Rain Rain Go Away". Then I was reminded of the years that we begged and prayed and begged and begged for rain. Local churches even had services just for prayer for rain. I didn't sing the song. I want my kids to be thankful for what we get. Yes we can pray for the rain. I just don't feel like we need to pray for the rain or sing for the rain to go away unless we are literally floating away. The thing is though even through all this rain, we are still making it. We are dealing. We didn't die through it. LOL! The Lord promised to us through a rainbow that He would never flood the earth again.
With that said this is kind of how life is. Going through the moment of hard times we think it's the most horrible thing. Then when it's all over and done with and we look back we see that what we were going through wasn't so bad after all. There's always someone who is going through something that is a little more severe than our problems that we are dealing with.
