Last night Chris and I had a good long conversation with the Man Upstairs. We understand that if He gives us rain and strong winds, that we'll be depending on Him more than usual. And if we should get struck by lightning...well then we'll be headed Upstairs ourselves.
We awoke this morning to rain. It was in the forecast, but still a bit discouraging. For the last two days, the forecast has called for all of the above-mentioned weather elements. Last night it called for rain all through the day. As I write this at 7:30am, the forecast shows the rain subsiding at around noon.
We've just had a protein-heavy breakfast and are out the door.
Pray for good weather, my friends.
Chris is feeling well, and we both got a good night's sleep.
