"April Showers Bring May Flowers"

Good Monday to my Friends, Followers, Visitors, and Viewers.
Welcome back from your weekend of fun and excitement.  
It's May!  I know you turned your calendar(s) yesterday, but I just wanted to make a statement to those who are still functioning in April.
Tomorrow, May 3, our little town will be voting for their town officers.  My husband is trying to receive votes for his third term...wish him some success in doing so.
We heard and have repeated this statement...April showers bring May flowers.
We had a lot of rain in April and to begin May, it was raining yesterday.  I almost got soaked coming out of church yesterday...that's how hard it was coming down.  The weather prediction is for rain every day this week in my part of the world.  But, are the flowers blooming?  Yes, they are.  I have what is called a Mother's Day rose bush outside my kitchen window (it was actually a bush we dug up and replanted at our house after my mother died years, and years ago) and it is loaded with blooms ready to pop open (it does this every year for Mother's Day).  Other perennial flowers are emerging out of the ground.  With all the rain we were and is having I thought they would have drown...but God is allowing them to do their thing again this year.
