So. In case you haven’t seen any national news this week, it’s raining in California. In fact, it’s been raining since Monday. And will continue on raining all the way through tomorrow. This hasn’t been just rain. Oh, no. We’ve had the kind of “rain” that makes little piles on the grass and the windshield.
Then there’s been the wind, oh, and those two 4.0 earthquakes. Yes, the last week has been quite a ride! Tonight we were supposed to join with about 20 other SOWER’s who are working nearby projects for a potluck. Unfortunately, with all of the local flooding, it was cancelled. But we made the best of a disappointing situation and quickly scheduled a game night for just the eight of us! It was lots of fun –
(We’re a pretty serious group of card players, aren’t we?!).
Plus it gave us an excuse to help eat up one of the desserts that was scheduled to go to the potluck!
Yummm – thanks, Nancy!
But even though the weather has been incredibly miserable (we even noticed that the supermarket was running low on milk and bread – just like back East when the forecast calls for snow!), I did manage to find some small points of beauty amidst the raindrops.
make music to our God on the harp.
He covers the sky with clouds;
he supplies the earth with rain
and makes grass grow on the hills.
He provides food for the cattle
and for the young ravens when they call.
His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his delight in the legs of a man;
the LORD delights in those who fear him,
who put their hope in his unfailing love.
