I live in a drought-stricken area. The creeks and dams are dry, and tank water has been gone. Here is a recent update from about 15 minutes ago:
It’s currently raining up here. Lots of thunder. This picture is the view from my verandah. The grey haze is the rain.
Pray it lasts. We need about a week’s worth of constant rain to fill the dams, creeks, and water tanks. If it only lasts an hour, it will just be soaked up by the hungry ground, like a sponge. And in two hours, you won’t know it rained. So please pray that the rain will be a steady constant rain for days.
My son Eli is looking out the window, amazed. He is only 4; he does not remember seeing this much rain. The thunder is very loud.
And now it is hailing. This picture is again from my verandah. If you look carefully, you can see the white streaks as the hail falls to the ground. And of course, LOTS of hail on the ground. And lots of thunder. Let’s hope this does not blow over. Lorien (6) and Eli (4) are sitting looking out the window, fascinated.

The current crisis in the land of Israel affects us all in different ways. Most of us in the West are shocked and even traumatised by the evil and brutality which occurred on 7 October 2023, which can only be described as a demonically inspired massacre.
Islam, like all extremist views, is completely “black and white”. And this is what we see in the West, with Left-wing extremist groups labelling any view that’s less extreme than their myopic orthodoxy as “Fascist”.
We need each other. We depend upon one another. And a first step in this is often just to state your need. It is the same with God. We must first admit our need. We must abandon our foolish sense of self-sufficiency and tell God just how utterly dependent we are upon Him.
