Thundershowers are loaded with nitrogen and provides an ingredient that keeps our vegetation green.  Carlo Carretto became a monk at age 44 and lived a life of prayer in the Arabian desert. His book, “Letters from the Desert” tells how he rediscovered God’s glory in the starry skies of Arabia.  One excerpt notes: ”How dear the stars are to me, I know them by their names, I distinguish their color, size, position and beauty. I know my way around them and from them I calculate the time without a watch.” Recently we protected a mother Cardinal and her eggs in an Boganvilla plant, hanging from our back porch.  With the nest protected by the thorns on the plant I was able to water then plant in between the "sittings" and the hatching. The research was accurate that after 11 days of incubation the peeps were in need of nourishment.  George Washington Carver wrote: “I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting system through which God speaks to us every hour, if we only tune in.”
