Prayers for Rain. . .Answered!

Living in Texas, where drought is often a reality, we rejoice when God hears and answers our prayers for rain!  In the last forty-eight hours, we have been blessed with an abundance of spring rain and unseasonably cool temperatures.  Today, my outdoor thermometer never registered above fifty-five degrees while the rain fell steadily most of the day.  The next three days promise to be mild and sunny.  Even so, the ground will be too wet for in-ground gardening for several days.  During this gardening break, we will be planning the next phase in the Twelve Tribes Garden, building raised beds in the one-acre vegetable garden, and tending to the compost pile.  By the end of the week, I hope to have a nice, newsy post for you all!

    I thank God for the Rain and the Cool weather. I’ll take all of this we can get before the long hot summer during which time I always pray for a cool breath of God’s wind to blow through the heat of the day! I haven’t had the pleasure of digging in the dirt with you yet, but I look forward to it. Do keep us posted when the next excavation is. I can’t wait to see Judah and Simeon in full bloom!
