Rain

I will admit that I am a weather watcher. What is the fascination with the weather? Sometime between 10:30 and 11:00 I head upstairs to bed. The local news comes on at 11:00 and it is my gaol to stay awake long enough for the weather segment at 11:15. I usually only manage to stay awake about half the time. And during the day if I don't catch the weather on TV then I can easily log onto the computer and get an update. Will it be a sweltering 90 degrees today with high humidity? Will we FINALLY get that snow we've been praying for all winter so we can go snowmobiling? Won't it please rain; we just fertilized the lawn. Tomorrow is church on the lawn; is it going to rain?

We've been in a terrible draught for most of the summer but not anymore, at least not at our house. I bought a rain gage at the beginning of the summer. There's hardly been a drop in it for all of June and July. And my water bill of $165 for the month of July will attest to that. In the last week we have gotten 8 inches of rain!! Luckily we have no flooding issues but some areas in the community are having problems with that too.

I am loving walking outside in the yard to a lush green lawn, and not having to be a slave to watering my gardens. It's just so refreshing. It poured rain and stormed through the night last night. And now the sky is blue and the sun is out.........

Hi
I have a question for you.I noticed that you like reading The Message Bible and wanted to ask you if you know how much it differs from a NIV ?The reason I ask is that I want to get my mom a Bible for Christmas.Her criteria is that it should fit in her purse!I have seen a compact Message Bible but since I have never used it....I was not sure
Thanks
