Thank you Lord for this bountiful rainfall.
But did it have to happen today?
For months your blazing sun dried us out.
Until the hour I wanted to play.
Thank you Lord for these wonderful children
If only they'd all be quiet.
I need time to think, to grow, to learn
In a household that sounds like a riot.
Thank you Lord for the multiple gifts
That you bless me with each day
If only I would take them and use them
Rather than pushing them all away.
