We have not had rain here in weeks. Perhaps even a month. The once lush green grass has turned a crunchy brown, the vibrant colored flowers are wilting and the crops are suffering. The brutal summer sun continues to beat down upon us daily and there is no promise of rain in the near future. We need rain, badly.
Signs of stressed crops at a nearby farm show the corn's leaves curling and pointing upward toward the sky trying to retain every bit of moisture.
The ends of the leaves are turning a yellow brown and shriveling up from the dryness and the hot sun.
Even the farms that are using irrigation methods in their fields say the heat just sucks all the moisture out of the plants.
If only this irrigation method would help.
Please pray for rain in my corner of the world.
