Refreshing Rain

Rain has fallen all night, and the earth drinks and rejoices.

It is raining still, welcome moisture wind-pushed four hundred miles from the Gulf to this thirsty spot of land.

Two days ago, we seeded beds for kale, collards, and turnip greens. I can imagine those tiny seed getting fat and cozy, ready to burst into the light.

He covers the sky with clouds, he supplies the earth with rain,
and maketh the grass grow on the hills.
~Psalms 147:8

Happy Labor Day, kind friends.

Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.
~Matthew 11:28-30
