blessings "rained" down

Today is one of those rare rainy days here. It is beautiful, and while it will change the plans we had for today, is a welcome intruder. And even better than the rain today, will be what the rain today prevents (wildfires) and provides (wildflowers).

Rain is so obviously a good thing, especially in the desert Southwest, that it's a great reminder that "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like the shifting shadows." James 1:17

The next time I have to change my plans because of something God is pouring down on me, I will remember that it is a good and perfect gift and look forward to what is prevented and to what is provided by it.
