Happiness Raining Down

Did you ever get a present that was so awesome...so unbelievable...so unexpected that it left you completely in awe?  Well that happened to me and although this is not my normal type of post, I thought I'd share anyway:-)

My birthday was last week.

Not a "big one", just another marker along the stitching in time.

The weather, on the other hand, was big.  Heavy rains started on Friday and continued off and on all weekend.  And the harder it rained, the happier I became.

You see, we've been in a severe drought for the past three years and haven't seen heavy rain throughout most of that time.  The lovely lake we lived on had completely dried up and we jokingly called our house the little house on the prarie.

But last week the rain fell, and continued to fall, on Saturday, and Sunday, and Monday. 


By Monday I began to think that perhaps some water might actually stay in the 63 acre lake. But after it being dry for so long I still had my doubts.  On Tuesday morning I got up early to look out the window and could see from the reflections that there indeed was water in the lake!


As soon as it got light enough I grabbed my camera (well actually my cell phone) and took some photos.  An entirely different view than the day before!



This is our new (or old) view!


The blessings rained down upon me and I was given a most
wonderful birthday present from God!

Now how awesome is that!



                          Until next time ~
