I had a long day yesterday. Last night was the volunteer appreciation party that I throw every year. It’s a lot of work, but it’s always one of everyone’s favorite events.
The forecast for the evening was rain and thunderstorms. I felt a bit selfish for this, but I prayed for good weather. Good weather can make or break the mood of a party sometimes, and I wanted the people in attendance last night to be able to stroll around outside, walk in leisurely, and not have thunder booming overhead.
A lady who has to drive through some intense farmland came running into the party exclaiming, “The cows were standing, the cows were standing!” I didn’t realize it at the time, but this was the sign that my little prayer to hold off the rain was answered.
So I am very thankful to God for his favor last night, silly as it may seem now to have prayed so earnestly for good weather. I’m kind of wiped out now.
I spent most of my morning cleaning out the rabbits litter, cutting flowers for Julie before the frost gets them tonight, and drinking coffee. I’m on my third cup now.
The party was a success. The volunteers felt appreciated, and now I need to get into work to finish cleaning things up!
If my blog post this morning was a disappointment by the way, take a look at “In His Courts.” It’s one of my favorites of late and may work it’s way up to “addiction” status soon.
