I'm thankful for the rain that waters on our thirsty trees, plants, and grass. It's a simple thing to be thankful for, but going through a really dry spell where I live makes me appreciate it all the more. How easy it is for me to forget all the little blessings in life that all add up.
Farmers' plants get the water they so desparately need which means I get better fruits and veges to feed my family. The cows and chickens have healthy green grass to eat bringing nutritious meat to our table . I guess the rain only seems insignificant, but such a small thing snowballs into something much bigger.
Although, the grey clouds make me drowsy and lazy which isn't much fun and makes me less productive, the reward is a greener part of my world. So today, thank you, Lord, for your creation and the cycle of rain that brings us beauty and the nourishment our bodies require.
