So thankful for rain!!!

Postby Highpoint » Mon Sep 25, 2017 9:33 pm

City folks have no idea as I was a city person for more than 50 years and when it did not rain I just turned on the sprinkler. Forgive me as now I pray and look at my neighbors land and realize they have worked so hard and need rain.

It has been awhile since the last rain and tonight a shower came just so thankful.

Send some our way, ponds are drying up and pasture is like walking on popcorn it crunches so much. I am having to move some cattle to a new field tonight just to avoid feeding hay!

We are as dry as a popcorn fart around here. We were suppose to have a decent chance yesterday, today and tomorrow but it looks to be staying west. Got all my seed out because of the good chances and it looks like Mother Nature has different ideas.

We are dry also over here in the valley. North of Harrisonburg Va it is REALLY dry, corn drying up in the field and alot doesn't have much for ears. Now I am dealing with a spring going dry at one place, and hauling water, and will move some out that I was breeding A I because it just is too much to haul water to over 30 head. It's where we calve out the first calf heifers, but has a small barn and head catch so works well for catching cows, like for breeding. No rain in sight for another 10 days at least.

I hate to hear that, but personally, even with 2011 in mind, I am now of the opinion that there are worse things than drought.

I wondered how it was, over there, on the other side of the mountains. I was in Elkton on Tuesday, it sure is dry there too, so I figured its got to bad where you are as well.

Sure sorry to hear so many without rain. I pray all receive rain and neighbors who too realize how important it is pray for their area farmers for rain.

Thanks, now I know who to blame. :)
It would be nice to know where here is. Rain is predicted here for Sunday and Monday.
We don't need it now, as our crops are finished growing and just messes with dry down and harvesting.

When praying rather than pretending that I know what is best or best for all....
I pray for God's will to be done.

I guess I should have said I pray all who need rain receive rain and Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In heaven there is no need of rain. I already know He wishes above all things that we prosper and be in good health as our soul prospers but yes He knows that you do not want rain and your prayer over your land does trump.

He also says where two shall agree as asking Him for anything it shall be theirs. Sounds like some on the board are struggling and need someone to believe with them. That is all.
