Rain dance.

This is the driest July in a hundred years over here in Indianapolis.  The county where I live has recently banned all landscaping projects and lawn watering to combat the drought.  Needless to say, everything that was once green is now brown and crunchy.

For the past seven weeks we’ve watched rain miss our part of the state. Either it’s to the north or the south or to the east or west.  It’s almost as if there was there was a glass bubble put over our neighborhood keeping the wet stuff out.

But yesterday finally, finally the rain came down.  For fifty-five blessed minutes the skies opened and the heavens unleashed a steady downpour.

We were thrilled to say the least and my two girls ran outside to play in the rain.

My family got exactly what we had been praying and hoping for yesterday.  My wish for you, gentle reader, is that something you’ve been longing for comes to you at last.

And when it does I hope you take the time to rejoice in it.

    We’ve been praying for rain too. The Stake President actually sent out a letter to that effect. That was two weeks ago. Since then we’ve had a few nice storms. One of them put out a fire on the mountain east of Tooele that the firemen weren’t able to reach. Thank goodness for small miracles. Unfortunately the night it rained so hard was the night we were camping.

    Beautiful pictures! I love the last one.

      Our family fasted and prayer last month for some rain. Eden is too young to fast so she prayed extra hard. Yesterday it was wonderful hearing her say ‘thank you’ over and over.

  2. Eden’s got some height on that last picture! (Look like she’s trying to land on top of Trinity’s shoulder.) Those pictures convey such joy.

  3. We are in the same boat. Our huge sycamore trees have already dropped most of their leaves in an attempt to conserve water, making leaf removal necessary in 105-degree heat. Yesterday was the first time I can honestly say that I dreaded yard work. Send some of that rain this way, please!

    look at your poor brown crispy lawn 😦 Poor indy! I’m glad the Heavens opened up for you finally! I think the whole country is suffering from this heat but it seems like the midwest has had it bad this year! I hope you get more rain and soon! If not just move to the Northwest we get rained on a lot 😉
