Rain After Drought
The rain has watered all the city
Gently and with tact,
Then gone to show some others pity,
His rainbow bags all packed.

When heaven is shut up and there is no rain because they have sinned against you, if they pray toward this place and acknowledge your name and turn from their sin, when you afflict them, then hear in heaven and forgive the sin of your servants, your people Israel, when you teach them the good way in which they should walk, and grant rain upon your land, which you have given to your people as an inheritance.
--1 Kings 8:35-36 ESV
As the photo shows, parts of our area have been blessed with rain in the past few days.
