If you're like me, a valley native, there is a particular delight to the first time an evening storm rolls in during the Monsoon. Usually it's been hot and dry for too long and although the Monsoon makes the area more humid, we know that those clouds bring the resource that renews and brings life - water. As the ancient Psalmist said "...the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain at the presence of God, the God of Sinai, at the presence of God, the God of Israel. Rain in abundance, O God, you showered abroad; you restored your heritage when it languished; your flock found a dwelling in it; in your goodness, O God; you provided for the needy." Psalm 68:8-9 NSRV
May the rain remind us of all of our blessings that can be found everywhere!
