As we sat during the worship service the rain came harder and harder. One of our praise songs was "Shine Jesus Shine." How appropriate on such a rainy day. Jesus' light shines even through the gloom of a rainy day. The message was "To God Be the Glory." We need the rain but we need Jesus to shine also. The annual church picnic was rained out so everyone brought all their goodies to the church and we had an indoor picnic. The only complaint was there was no place to play horseshoes.
