When the sky finally opened up and gave us a little shower the other day, we were all surprised. Though to us it seems like a long time since our last rain, to the kids it must really seem life forever.
Joy came running down the stairs demanding, “Why is it raining?” She has never quite left the “why” stage. Actually, I’m not entirely sure she ever will!
“Because God is blessing us with some rain!” I responded.
“He whaaaaat?” her whole little self portraying that she didn’t get it.
“He blessed us with rain!” I said again.
She ran to the window and stared as if she had never seen rain before.
Her little brother was a bit more dramatic. He came running down the stairs in panic, yelling, “What’s happening outside?”
We are truly thankful for the rain and the cooler weather!
