Showers of Blessings

Yesterday I had a discussion with a few Hutterite friends. They were all excited about the rain that was in the forecast for today. Their freshly seeded crops were in need of the moisture. If I am honest, I did not share  their enthusiasm about today’s weather. 
Then I was reminded of our first visit to MCF in 2016. While touring the facilities, Ruth and I got a bit frustrated with the rain and all the clay sticking to our shoes.  Angela, our host, did not make any apologies. She simply said: “Around here we call the rain showers of blessing and we thank God for them.”
So today, as I cycled in the rain, I thanked God for the showers of blessings. I was still cold, but I was NOT miserable.
