You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

We got record rain here in the desert a few days ago. There was flooding in some areas as there always is if it rains very much at all. I'm thankful we live on higher ground and it hasn't flooded here. Thinking about showers, I really enjoyed the rain showers we received. It reminded me of showers of blessings. We used to sing a song in church often about showers of blessings. We don't sing it anymore but I like to recall all the blessings the Lord has showered upon me in my lifetime. 82 years of showers of blessings. Sure there were a lot of bad times in that 82 years but sometimes even bad things can be blessings in disguise. So October 5 is my birthday. That's the day this is scheduled to post. I will be celebrating 82 years of great showers.
