Autumn Blessings

As they pass through the Valley of Baca [“weeping,” location unknown],
    they make it ·like [a place with] a spring.
    The ·autumn [early] rains ·fill [wrap; cover] it with ·pools of water[or blessings].
Psalm 84:6

With my leanings toward pessimism, I sometimes think a forecast of rain is negative.  Thanks should be pouring from my lips like water from the leaves when God sends rain.  Because of this reminder, today I'm taking my umbrella with a smile underneath and thinking of those pools of water as blessings.
