H.B. J! & Rain?!

Before I begin today's entry on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I would like to wish my grandson J, Happy Birthday!  I am looking forward to spending time with you, J! 

Here on LwL I'll discuss something I have never before done.

What is the topic?  Weather.

I'm going to show you some photos I took when driving down from Las Vegas (LV), Nevada (NV) on NV Hwy #95, south of Searchlight, NV, on my way to Lake Havasu City (LHC), Arizona (AZ).

These pics are a little different than what are normally taken.  Not just by me, but also by others.

You may have trouble noticing what I will be discussing.  However, after you've read what I've said, and you look again, you may understand, totally.

Here's some photos that I took, while driving (no, I wasn't stopped on the side of the road!):

Yes, the sky was cloudy.  Very abnormal for this area.

Not only were the clouds dark, but I actually had
very light raindrops on my windshield for a couple of minutes.

While it may be difficult for you to see in this pic,
the haziness of this pic, is actually where it was raining heavily.
As I passed through the area where there was rain drops,
I photographed what was seen in my mirror... clouds and rain.
Like I said previously, as I exited from the cloudy and rainy area,
it was brighter and clearer.  All except for what was seen in my mirror.
While someone like me might find this to be different than normal, residents don't. 

Many people let me know it was Monsoon season.  Meaning, it was the time of year when they have high winds and rain.

In the past, I had seen on a couple of occasions, rain in the distance.  But, never before had I ever had raindrops on the vehicle I was driving!  To me, this was shocking!

As I said, this happened on NV Hwy #95, south of Searchlight, NV.  It didn't happen while I was in Laughlin.  Nor, while I was in Lake Havasu City (LHC).

Even so, while in LHC, I heard people repeatedly talking about how awful they thought the weather was.  One day, people complained that they had 8% humidity.

What?!  They were upset over 8% humidity?!

I was told that they usually have less than half that amount of humidity.  So, while it felt dry to me, residents felt it was too humid.

Sigh...  Believe me, when I say I silently laughed.  I did!

I must admit, that due to the extreme dryness there, even though the temperatures ranged from about 96F (35.5 C) to 108F (42.2 C), it felt more to me like it would at home with temperatures between 75F (23.8 C) and 80F (26.6 C).

How could this be?  Well, at home in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, we have much higher humidity.  In fact, I don't ever recall humidity being that low, here. 

Humidity, is often high where I live.  Even on days where there is no rain, and when temperatures are low.  Which makes those lower temperatures more hot and sticky.

Of course, God is in control.  Over all things in our lives.  Including the weather.

Just as we read, in Leviticus 26:3-4, "If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;
Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit."

Yes, everyone needs rain from time to time.  No matter where they live.

But, when we are obedient to God, He provides for all our needs.

Are you obedient to God?

Are you saved?

If not, I feel badly for you.  And, will continue to pray for you.

If you are, then I praise God!  After all, this means that He will provide for all your needs.

For this, we who are God's children must be thankful to Him. 

Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
