What's that Wet Stuff Falling From the Sky?

Raindrops
So many raindrops
It feels like raindrops
Falling from my eyes...

For some reason, every time I water skied, that song by David Cassidy ran through my head.

But this isn't about skiing, it's about raindrops! At least I assume they are raindrops......after all, we haven't seen them since May. I think I've forgotten what that wet stuff looks like!

can you see the little splashes?

It's been a banner summer of droughts, signs posted with watering curfews, dead and dying shrubs and trees. With triple digit temperatures all over Texas, it's been the hottest summer yet. My area around Dallas set a record of 70 days of 100 degrees and above. That broke the record set in 1980 -- the summer I was pregnant with my firstborn!


So it was really gratifying to hear rain on the roof when I woke up this morning! And it's continuing -- a light, soft rain; the kind that soaks in and does some good.



Praise the Lord and pass the umbrellas!!

Wasn't it wonderful to see rain?!! The people at church were convinced my toddlers did not know that it was rains:)

I hope you can join us at the It’s a Wrap Link Party at Artful Rising.

Rain is a nice thing when it's well needed. Happy you got some! Love the picture under the umbrella. There's something so special in photos of kids with pets. I could look through them all day.

70 days over 100 degrees? I feel like the wicked witch after she's had the pail of water thrown at her......."melting.....melting....."!
