Waiting for Rain

On Saturday, while I was working in the garden, my husband continued to smooth and level out the areas that needed grass.

Later in the evening, on Saturday, my husband and I were able to get all the areas seeded with grass, and spread straw over these areas until we ran out (of straw). That job went a little faster than most, because we have two spreaders for the seed, and we could both be working at the same time.

The grass seed was sown, but we ran out of straw for this area.

This week it has been very dry, and we are waiting for rain to get the seed up and growing. The rain will come eventually.

“….for he maketh  his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Matthew 5:45b)

In the meantime we will wait.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
