    I along with many others, wish to praise the Lord for the wonderful rain we had last week. We go 1.2 inches and others got even more, while some are still needing rain. Floyd even had to mow our yard, or at least part of it, for the first time in quite awhile. Sure doesn’t take long for things to get green and start growing again after a good rain. He had been watering our garden, but that doesn’t equal to a good rain.
