Bugs and Prayers

We brought rain with us to the resort. Jerry and Kate said it was much needed and now there has been an abundant supply. It may rain yet today. An answer to prayer for those who prayed for rain. For others who may have prayed for sunny days for their graduation day parties or weddings, they will have to wait their turn. I think Lincoln was speaking for God when he said, “You can please some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot please all of the people all of the time.”

On that note, the mosquitoes are ecstatic. They had to lay low during the drought years, but their time has come again. I guess they deserve their turn, too, to have their prayers answered. Every low spot where water sits, they do their family thing. This too shall pass but meanwhile we swat, spray, and sometimes run for cover. Kate said she can’t wait for the dragon flies. She doesn’t  mind it when they do their dive bombing right in front of your face because they are  diving for mosquitoes. I can’t say the same, but it is far better than mosquitoes sucking your blood.
