"...please come back another day."
Maybe you remember that song from your childhood. I do. I remember having plenty of opportunities to sing it.
It isn't my song today.
Our area has been without significant rainfall in weeks, if not months, now. The corn crops will be lost if we do not get rain within the next two weeks.
Things are hard for the farmers around here. The water is feast or famine, too much or too little, or at the wrong time when it does come. They are forever fighting nature, sometimes winning, sometimes losing.
We are to be thankful in all things, including droughts and floods. I have faith that He will send the rain, just in time.
70. I am thankful for the rain that other areas are getting and am thankful for the rain that we will get. I am thankful for the bumper crop of corn that *will* be harvested this year. I am thankful for farmers that keep on trying, even when all things point to just packing up and giving up.
