Recent rains an answer to prayer but more was needed
For the last few days, everyone was watching the skies, waiting, and praying for rain as the local signs recommended. Well God delivered this afternoon, but it still wasn’t enough to remove the Stage 3 drought or water restrictions.
While the plea for rain bought limited relief, rain for forty days and nights was not needed as Genesis 7:12-14 (KJV) indicated:
- 12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
- 13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;
- 14 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.
Because of this afternoon’s rain, reader’s were 100% happy for the limited relief. KFDX reported the biggest threat for Wichita County was hail two inches in diameter. For me, seeing penny, nickel and dime-sized hail was a thrill. KAUZ storm spotters reported that the Wal-Mart in Bowie Texas had their doors blown open from the strong winds and their was water damage inside.
