Gratituesday - Rain

Southwest Oklahoma needed rain.  God has provided!
The skies have been filled with brilliant colors, beautiful storm clouds, and magnificent lightening.
But while many around here (southwest Oklahoma and north Texas area) needed the rain and are very thankful for receiving it in ample supply, our thoughts go out to those in areas around Oklahoma City, who have had extensive flooding.
Many homes are flooded.  Many businesses are flooded.  Thankfully, as of yet, there is no loss of life from the floods.  I pray that this continues to be true.
Rain.  It has been a blessing to us, but has created many problems for so many others.
One of our blessings has been seeing a rainbow two days in a row!  Our children were thrilled to see a complete half-circle rainbow and even a double rainbow on both of those days.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a whole picture of either of the rainbows. But, on the bright side, I didn't get stuck in the mud trying to get these pictures, as I did this one time.
In storms and in floods, God shows His awesome power.
I am grateful for His power and His might.
I pray for the safety of those who have had flooding and at the same time, thank Him for watering our dry land and watering the farmer's cotton plants.

Join us for Gratituesday at Heavenly Homemakers!

...give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
