RAIN, RAIN AND MORE RAIN
Today's service was a testimony from each of the ten folks that went on the mission trip last month in Turkey. It was a touching service with the music adding very much to the praising of our Lord.
We had everyone at lunch of one of the frozen butts we smoked back in March with fresh green beans and corn from the farm outlet and mashed potatoes and slaw,yummy!!
After lunch we visited and then scattered for our own activities.
The rain has continues without stopping,I now see the rushing waters of the creek licking the tops of the creek banks and getting close to the bottom of the bridge from the front porch.
Our entire area is under flash flood warnings now.
Hubbie and I spent the afternoon relaxing and listening to the pouring rain.
To brighten a dreary afternoon I took these photos of the blooms in the yard last week.
More Azaleas are showing their colors around the yard.
After chores this evening I emptied another 2 3/4 inches of rain from the gauge bringing the total since it started raining yesterday just before noon to 3 3/4 inches and it is still coming down but not as hard tonight.
Aaron brought the cattle up to the upper pasture just before dark,not taking a chance on leaving them in the flood prone lower pastures.
We are definitely getting the ground water levels up for the summer dry season this year.
I am thankful tonight for my wonderful church family and for the amazing graciousness of our Heavenly Father.
Good Night and God Bless.
