We’re “battening down the hatches” for the expected torrential rain and storms the weather forecasters have promised us……….
Well they think they have promised us …. but over here in Israel we know that rain is not dependent on meteorological and natural elements - but on our relationship with One Above .
It’s difficult for those of you in Europe and the USA to imagine longing for rain – you get it in plentiful supply and maybe you think even over-supply.
When I lived in England it used to rain about 350 days of the year – but not over here.
Our summers have been getting hotter and longer, our aquifers depleted and never refilled during the long ,dry winters we’ve been having.
We’ve instituted special prayers for rain and have already had two days of fasting.
Our first rain started falling on Monday
…..and now we’re looking forward Please G’d to several days of real storms.
Our parched and burnt land, our rivers and streams , our crops and our farmers and all of us young and old who need this life giving force are very grateful to the Supplier Above .
