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.

Praise the Lord you've gotten some. Most of New Mexico is super dry, adn desperate. Our area is closer than most of the state to normal, partly because we are one of the driest areas already, but the plants are showing the drought .
