And the Rain Came Down

The other night I lay in bed with my little boy and listened to the rain come down. 

It's raining again tonight.

More flash flooding is in the forecast.

I am stunned by the damage that has been done.

We are less than a mile from the Poudre River but are high enough and okay.

Yesterday the sun came out for a bit so my favorite walking buddies and I took a trek up behind the house to see how the irrigation canal was holding up.

It touched my heart to see the faintest of rainbows in the late afternoon sky.

 

Life has dealt a curve ball to many in Colorado this week. Schools have shut down, roads have been destroyed, towns cut off, and lives lost.

We know the sun will shine again, but tonight it's dark and there are many to whisper a prayer for—and much to be thankful for.
