The day is growing darker now,
Though breakfast's not yet done.
The Lord may give us rain today
Instead of summer sun.
The clouds march past like infantry
Assembled on parade.
The countless ranks unblinking pass
In awesome strength arrayed.
A distant rumble of the drum,
A sharp note from the fife,
And now the clouds unleash their rain,
Artillery of life.
"If you follow My statutes and faithfully observe My commands, I will give you rain at the right time, and the land will yield its produce, and the trees of the field will bear their fruit."
--Leviticus 26:3-4, HCSB
Note: I wrote this some days ago. We have no rain yet today, which is fine, since we've had much more than normal.
