and then it rained

"I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees of the field their fruit." Leviticus 26:4

One minute it was hot and sunny, the next cold and raining and very BEAUTIFUL!!!  Some friends of our made us a mix CD with different songs on it that would deal with Africa or missions (thank you Jason and Julia), song number one is "I felt the rains down in Africa" I wish I could remember who it was written by (it is an oldie but goodie - maybe I even have the title wrong, oops?) but it has become a family favorite.  My kids are like, put on song number one.....  Anyway, so when it rained, we all went outside and experienced the first of our rains in Africa and every moment was unforgettable.  Thank you Lord for the nourishing rain.  Nourishing to both land and soul!!


  1. You've got that song right. I forgot who sings it. But I'm singing along with you.

  2. Toto - Africa

    :D Take a picture please! LOL I love the way you describe everything, helps me feel like I'm there with you!

  3. Yeah! I was finally able to send the "rains in NC" that we have been feeling for months to Africa and know that they were appreciated a lot more than they were here! Enjoy them!

  4. We can't wait, you make it sound so wonderful and inviting. Our to bring list is growing, keep addint to it as you think of things. Today we're off to MTY.

  5. I remember that song from when we were driving around passing time before going to GWL. It poured here last night - and I can't help but be reminded how God uses rain to cleanse the earth.
