Rain and the drought
North Carolina remains in the midst of a long (over 2 years now) and tedious drought. Tonight there's a bit of rain falling. It's easy to forget that -- from a natural standpoint -- all that stands between humanity and starvation is a thin layer of soil, and the fact that it rains. And when we forget that, we forget to be thankful, and bless God for the gifts He gives us: food, and rain. As we pray for God to bring more rain, we can thank Him for what we have, and pray for those around our world in far worse conditions than our own.
