In thanksgiving for the gift of rain...

Although we need much more rain, we're grateful for what we have received here over these past few days. The creek beds are still flowing, and everything looks much better than it has in a very long time!

Most gracious God, by whose knowledge the depths are broken up and the clouds drop down the dew: We yield thee hearty thanks and praise for the gift of rain, and for all the other blessings of thy merciful providence; and we beseech thee to give us a just sense of all thy great mercies, such as may appear in our lives by a humble, holy, and obedient walking before thee all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost be all glory and honor, world without end. Amen.
