We've had 17 straight days of rain in Oklahoma. Two of those days it didn't rain on Oak Hill Homestead, but it still rained nearby. Rivers are flooded, roads are washed out, and people are being evacuated from their homes. Still, the low pressure system that is causing all this is stationary over us and continues to drop rain on us. I think of all those who need rain... my friend "C" in Birmingham, my father in California...
A friend "J" said that she is remembering Job, and that we've been overblessed with rain. I'm also remembering my promise to not complain about the mud that is now ankle-deep and that my goats refuse to step in (not that I blame them). Another friend has lost several goats due to the weather and I am praying for her.
