Thanks to the Lord of the harvest

Thank you for latter rain: abundance

Be glad, O people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for He has given you the autumn rains in righteousness. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before. [Joel 2:23]

See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains! You too, be patient and stand firm... As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. [James 5:7,11f]
