…be her.

…and the story was told of a little village where there had been drought for a long while, and the people prayed and prayed and prayed for rains to fall, yet rain fell not. Then, the people questioned God, and He answered them saying do you believe I can make the rains to fall? Yes they replied. Fast for seven days. After seven days, it still did not rain and the people murmured, but, You said we should fast for seven days. Yes I did but, did not say it would rain after seven days; wanted to know how obedient you people were. Haba, after these periods of drought, do You really think we will disobey or not believe You? Okay then, in that case fast for one more day and when you want to break the fast you should all gather at the town hall to pray. Then, your prayers shall be answered.

…and as the last sets of amen resounded, in torrents the rains fell. However, only a little girl remembered to bring an umbrella.



  1. maybe they missed the rains so much, they didnt want to bring an umbrella!

  2. where i am from, there is THE FIRST RAIN DANCE!
    they probably were doing tha.

  3. I can imagine what they will say… How great thou art..

  4. she was thinking ahead……….

  5. Little girl is my kind of girl………

    Prepared for what lies ahead.

    Been a loooong while

  19. Perhaps – we can assume.. that THE MUSE-er is back? Or would that be a case of bringing an umbrella to a prayer for drought?

  25. Rethots, how you gon’ come back and silently creep in without notifying me? Mchewww…

  26. Too funny. I missed your blog so…

  27. Hey, you know I was just thinking… there was a time a brother didnt have a job and things were getting harder. Even after getting the job and good pay, I was still thinking of someone to spot me. There is a way we get used to the bad things of life and dont kow how to react when the good things come.

  28. Smart girl.

  29. hmmmm this is philosophical

  30. Do you think Michel Jackson killed himself?
    What you think about my web? [url=]faxless payday loans[/url] [url=]payday[/url]

  33. Remember??!! Dont you mean ‘only one little girl had enough faith to bring an umbrella’ Love this.

  34. we ask God for things sometimes and we so caught up in the need that we don’t realize we have to get ourselves ready for the harvest.
