The Rain is Coming

I'm posting at Woman to Woman about persistence and faith.  You can read more here.  

 Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground
and put his face between his knees.  
"Go and look toward the sea," he told his servant.  
And he went up and looked.  
"There is nothing there," he said.  
Seven times Elijah said, "Go back."
The seventh time the servant reported,
"A cloud as small as a man's hand is rising from the sea."
So Elijah said, "Go and tell Ahab,
'Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.'"
Meanwhile, the sky grew black with clouds,
the wind rose, a heavy rain come on.
1 Kings 18: 42-45

Do you see the cloud?  The rain is coming. 
Eyes looking up,
