It's a wonderful thing to have plenty of fresh, clean water. I'm sorry for the peoples of the world who do not have it.
Our abundant rain makes the Pacific Northwest the idea place for berries both wild and cultivated. It also makes it necessary to handle the excess. My husband spent the past two weeks digging through gravel and heavy clay to solve the problem of the winter creek and pond that form across the front of our house. In spite of the hard work, we consider rain to be a great blessing. Drought is reminder to check our hearts.
If you love the LORD your God and serve him with all your heart and your whole soul, then he will send rain upon your land in its season, and you will gather in your grain, wine, and oil; he will provide grass in your fields for your cattle, and you shall eat and be filled. But you must be determined not to let your hearts be lured away to serve other gods, and bring the LORD's indignation, so that he restrains the heavens and there be neither rain nor produce from the soil. —from Deuteronomy 11:13-17
