Oh, how we've prayed for rain for months. After only two light showers, it finally came pouring in. There were blessings in every raindrop.
A Beautiful Rainy Day
Hello out there to Stormspinner
I’m truly happy to report
That the rain storms in Texas
Found a satisfying way to abort
By sending showers to Florida
With wonderful rain falling down
It’s like God created an umbrella rainfall
To wet and soak the ground.
It’s been months since we’ve seen rain
At least more than a shower
In years we’ve not had such a drought
That took away our grass-growing power.
But last night the sky opened up
And poured water upon our dry earth
Now, we can sit back peacefully
And watch the magic of nature’s rebirth
Nature’s beauty will begin to grow,
The grass, shrubs, flowers and bushes
Then people will get out their mowers
Walking behind them with strong pushes.
Thank you Lord for the rain,
Thank you for the dark clouds in the sky
Most folks might think this is a bad day
But it is the nearest blessing nigh
To being a miracle
After such a long dry spell.
It’s a beautiful rainy day.

|Ahh, yes, a beautiful rainy day!
When you're in a drought,
Your throat is parched
And the grass is turning brown,
Is anything more beautiful
Than rain apouring down?
You've told a great story, Jeanette.

|Oh, Jeanette, I can so relate to this as our weather has been so hot with no rain. Then just the other day a lovely poring rain storm blessed us with some much needed moisture. It was indeed a 'beautiful rainy day'. This a lovely poem and I enjoyed it very much. Elizabeth|

|I agree with you my friend, our drought hasn't lasted quite as long as yours, but long enough...the past two days has been wonderfully filled with lengthy showers, and a few long slow showers...cooled the temperatures, gave the thirsty gardens a long drink, and revived the mountains...so glad to see it. Glad Florida got some rain as well. Hope the storms have subsided for Texas and our friends. Great write my friend!
