He has given you the autumn rains

Today's YouVersion verse of the day was Joel 2:23:
Be glad, people of Zion,
    rejoice in the Lord your God,
for he has given you the autumn rains
    because he is faithful.
He sends you abundant showers,
    both autumn and spring rains, as before.
My favourite part of this is about how God sends rain in autumn. Today is a rainy autumn day, so it was very appropriate to read this verse this afternoon. I have previously written about how I like autumn. This verse reinforced that and made me appreciate the rain we get and the beautiful landscape it gives us. It is easy to complain about cold, rainy days, but autumn is an exciting time of many colours. We can wrap up warm and go out to jump in puddles and crunch through fallen leaves, or put the heating on and have a cosy indoor day. Let's rejoice because this is the day that the Lord has made!
