PCW April Showers Challenge

Welcome crafty friends!
Today is another Terrific Tuesday Bi-Weekly challenge! Our lovely PCW Designers have come up with an appropriate theme for this time of year.....April Showers!
april showers
This is normally the time of year in which the Lord provides the Spring rains needed for our freshly planted crops and for those gorgeous May flowers to come along.

Unfortunately, here in Central Florida where I happen to be located, it is SO DRY....We really truly need all the water the Lord would be willing to provide.  So this challenge is special in that regard. I want to take just a quick moment to publicly ask the Lord God to please be gracious to our land and send some very need rain to the areas that need it. Thank you Lord, for your hand upon each of us and our land. May you open up the windows of heaven and allow the rains to come. Thank you for your sovereignty and your love for us.....In the mighty and precious name of Jesus –Yeshua Ha Maschiach.....Amen :)
