Beer cans and cow turds — we love ’em!

One of the best things about our short vacation getaway was what happened at home while we were gone! 

My dad was checking the property and feeding our pets for us, and one day he told us by phone that it was supposed to rain.  A lot!  I went online to a couple of the OKC news Web sites and didn’t see anything near the predicted rainfall Pop mentioned, but we were hopeful that our place would at least get a little rain.  The water level in our pond was nearing the August level, which was quite pathetic.

Sure enough, the next morning he told us our rain gauges had about 1.7″ but the rain had slacked off.  Later that day, though, he said we had received another couple of inches and the pond was full!  We were receiving lots of runoff from upstream, and water was pouring over the spillway just as we’d hoped it would someday do.

On Saturday morning when he checked it, water was still trickling in and trickling out. By the time we got home that afternoon, the flow had stopped, but what a GLORIOUS site it was to see the pond brim full! A quick walk around the perimeter revealed beer cans and cow turds that had come from upstream somewhere…what a great gift! 

It seems God heard our prayers during the last 13 months, and it was worth the wait to see how he answered them!
