The rain began just as she started walking towards the outdoor range.
She moans inwardly in despair.
And she tells God.
God... please stop the rain... i know you need to water your plants, but i think they've been sufficiently watered already... please, i haven't shot outdoors in such a while and i really want to... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
Can i have the kind of hot, dry/humid kind of weather? the scorching hot kind? remember?
and as she walks into the range through the gates, the rain intensity begins to lessen.
and then as she reaches the tents and after a phone conversation, she looked up to the skies and discovered that:
not only did the rain STOP. But beautiful blue sky was revealed... OVER THE OUTDOOR RANGE.
just when a short while ago, the sky was cloudy, dark and very unpromising. and rain was making the range a mud pool.
Jo is/was a happy girl. Thank you papa God.
You show yourself in funny ways. But me likey.
It got so hot that i even got a sunburn to show for it.
Sorry guys, if today was too hot for you.
The time taken for answers to them vary, but when God sees that it's appropriate and that He can allow it, you'll be amazed by the instant answer!

Coach: yeah, i told you (me) so many times to join but you always say you're busy with this and that.
Me: WHHHAAAT? DID YOU ASK? WHEN?
Coach: *purses his lips and looks away for a moment before returning to look at me*

I'm very tired of inefficiency.
