The storm clouds were rolling in behind the pecan trees.
The clouds were turning dark steel blue and we knew that a gully washer was on the way!

About a week ago in church, Curtis had requested prayer for rain.... much needed rain. It had become really dry down here and everyone's allergies were giving them fits. The blooming pecan trees were the main culprits. The next day after we prayed, we got rain. Praise the Lord! Then, my allergies continued to get even worse and I asked Curtis to request prayer for a gully washer (a Southern term for heavy rainstorm).
We needed a heavy rain to wash away all of the pollen, dust and every other airborne particle that wreaks havoc on our sinus passages. Again, God answered prayer. The picture above shows what happened right before the storm broke loose! Notice where the storm clouds are - right behind the pecan trees.
God answers prayer, and this time He did it with a sense of humor!
It seemed as though He was saying,
"See, I'm going to help you out!"
Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known unto God.
