We're birdin' in the rain...

Just birdin' in the rain
What a glorious feeling,
And I'm happy again.
We're laughing at clouds,
So dark, up above.
Cause God's in our hearts,
We've no reason to pout.

Let the stormy clouds chase.
Sin from this place,
Come on with the rain
Wash away doubt, leave not a trace.
I´ll walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just birdin', birdin' in the rain.

The birding competition starts tonight (Friday), and it seems that each year, there is a lesson to be learned that has nothing to do with bird watching.  The weather reports for tomorrow are not favorable.  Looks like there will be storms all day, all across the state, but our team will be singing this song all the while, remembering that God moves the winds and the rains and we cannot just give Him praise in the sunshine.  I have rewritten Arthur Freed's little diddy, Singin' in the Rain*, to fit the occasion.  Feel free to sing along with us.  Your prayers are appreciated, too. 

I will report back on Monday.  For now, I am off...

birdin' in the rain!
*performed by various artists, most famously by Gene Kelley in the 1952 movie of the same title.
