I am not sure if I prefer a rainy summer or a summer of drought. This year on/in the Northern Prairies rain has been abundantly released! It has rained non-stop for the last three days, craziness.
My flowers are huge! However, because of the wet weather they are just starting to bloom and it is August.
And there has been some amazing declarations of God's goodness towards us displayed in the heavens. Following are a few pictures (which are not the greatest, but will show the awesomeness of God's greatness) and verses on what God's word has to say about rainbows:
Genesis 9:13--"I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth."
Genesis 9:16--"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."
Ezekiel 1:28--"Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. When I saw it, I fell face down, and I heard the voice of one speaking."
Revelation 4:3--"And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian. A rainbow, resembling an emerald, encircled the throne."
Revelation 10:1--"Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars."
I am back from my week at the lake, which was incredible! My husband and I have been married 27 years, and this is the first time we had no children with us, or a mission. All we had to do was enjoy the sun, which by the way lasted right until we came home on Friday.
We were truly blessed by the warm weather, finding rest in God, and being in each others company.
I now enter fall mode...and summer still has not fully arrived on the Prairies...go figure!
P.S. Life without internet is/was wonderful!
However, unlike the television it won't be a habit I can forget or get rid of completely. Moderation is the key!
