February 4 – Another Rainy Day

Dear Granny,

It is another rainy day here at the ranch. It can get depressing when it rains so much. But the ground needs it. Everything is so green. I stand in wonder every time I go outside and see God’s beauty all around. I see Him in the trees. I see Him in the flowers. I even see Him in the wind blowing through the eucalyptus.

The kids were outside in the barn most of the day. We have the hay fort out there and they like to climb all over it on days like today. As long as they wear their rain boots and jackets going back and forth to the barn, they won’t get sick. Living out here in the country has made them heartier.

My husband loves me so much. He built an extension from the front steps to keep us up out of the mud when going in and out of the house. The dogs love it!. They lay on it waiting for legs to rub up against. For some reason, they don’t mind the rain. Maybe they know it all comes from God. Romans 8:28 says “All things work together for good to those that love God”. I need to take a lesson from the animals. They have no worries for the future. God knows their needs and will supply them, We need to put it all into His hands.

Well Granny. I need to get going. Supper is almost ready and I need to call the kids in to wash up. I love you. I will write again soon.

Your loving granddaughter
