Buckets of Rain


"...You pour out rain in buckets, O God...." Psalm 68:9 (The Message)

God is at it again! Pouring out buckets of rain upon the just and the unjust. After watching the stock markets and house values go down for months now, I'm thinking my house value has just increased during the past few days - due to now being "lakefront property."

I'm tired of the rain but I am overjoyed by this one fact: it is rain and not snow!

O God, we thank you for being God and taking that responsibility off the rest of us. Thank you for sending the rain as a reminder of the many unique ways in which you nourish us each day. Remind us again of your presence ... even when you come to us in the form of buckets of rain. Amen.
