...but for the showers we plead--no rain, please!
It was Sunday night and upon arriving early at church discovered that there was no one there to open the door for us. Others were waiting, too. After several phone calls we discovered that the doorkeeper had been given wrong information, had been there earlier waiting to open the doors, and then left thinking there was to be no service. (That very Sunday was the first night we were to meet an hour later than normal). Someone took off to get the key while we waited. Then we noticed the sky getting darker and yes, "mercy drops"started falling and we all ran for shelter under the trees, but alas! the drops got thicker and larger and fell faster and in spite of the tree leaves, we all started getting wetter and wetter! Fortunately, before we were completely soaked, our salvation arrived and we all found shelter inside.
