Rainy Day Blessings

All rainfall in some way or another is a blessing despite the inconvenience we may feel it causes.
Today, the fortieth day after the celebration of Easter on March 31st this year, is Ascension day.
It is the day recorded in the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles in the Holy Bible when Jesus ascended in Heaven after His Resurrection. Cathedral and Church bellsπŸ””β›ͺπŸ””Β in many parts of Christendom will ring today to remind us of this special event.
An old tradition has it that Ascension day rain is especially goodΒ  if it touches you as it has touched the Lord Jesus as He ascends to Heaven. So let today’s rain fallΒ on you even if it is for a second or two.🌧️
The Hymn written by Charles Wesley, the famous Methodist Clergyman
describes this day well:
Hail the day that sees Him rise, Alleluia!
Highest Heaven its Lord receives,
Yet He loves the earth He leaves,
Though returning to His throne,
Still He calls us all His own, Alleluia!πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
May you feel showers of blessing this day! Amen.
– Abimbola Fajobi, Director of Christian Mission
