The people in the story are Hebrew and they live on Love Boot Island. They make their living by manufacturing boots from the skins of animals and other materials. They called the boots 'Love Boots' and they worked night and day making them. The symbol of the love boot, a small pink heart, was placed at the top on the outside of each boot. The boots were shipped to all parts of the world, and the people bought and loved them because of their design, durability, comfort and colors. Males and females of all ages wore their boots to parties, school, and work. For whatever the occasion, there were boots. One day it quit raining. Days passed, and still there wasn't any rain. There was no water for the gardens and they dried up. The fresh green grass dried up and the land turned all brown. The trees did not have leaves on them anymore. Where the creeks and rivers once flowed, there was dried cracked mud. Everything was a sad sight because there wasn't any more water. The people were desperate as they could not work and eat any more. Mommies and daddies went to the grocery store, but there was no more food on the shelves or in the land and the people were hungry, as the 'Great Famine' covered the land. In order to save their 777 famine babies, read the story to find out what the Hebrew people did. This is a family story and third graders and over will enjoy the reading.

The Latter Rain explores the symbols and types of the Book of Isaiah,creating a framework that can then be applied to other books of the Bible,helping the reader perceive meaning that was once obscured in symbolism.One such symbolic type is that of rain. While this type is not exclusive to Isaiah, it is used by Isaiah to symbolize the communication from God to man.

The scarcity of surface water which has so marked the Great Plains is even more characteristic of its subdivision, the Texas High Plains. Settlers on the plateau were forced to use pump technology to tap the vast ground water resources—the underground rain—beneath its flat surface. The evolution from windmills to the modern high-speed irrigation pumps took place over several decades. Three phases characterized the movement toward irrigation. In the period from 1910 to 1920, large-volume pumping plants first appeared in the region, but, due to national and regional circumstances, these premature efforts were largely abortive. The second phase began as a response to the drouth of the Dust Bowl and continued into the 1950s. By 1959, irrigation had become an important aspect of the flourishing High Plains economy. The decade of the 1960s was characterized chiefly by a growing alarm over the declining ground water table caused by massive pumping, and by investigations of other water sources. Land of the Underground Rain is a study in human use and threatened exhaustion of the High Plains' most valuable natural resource. Ground water was so plentiful that settlers believed it flowed inexhaustibly from some faraway place or mysteriously from a giant underground river. Whatever the source, they believed that it was being constantly replenished, and until the 1950s they generally opposed effective conservation of ground water. A growing number of weak and dry wells then made it apparent that Plains residents were "mining" an exhaustible resource. The Texas High Plains region has been far more successful in exploiting its resource than in conserving it. The very success of its pump technology has produced its environmental crisis. The problem brought about by the threatened exhaustion of this resource still awaits a solution. This study is the first comprehensive history of irrigation on the Texas High Plains, and it is the first comprehensive treatment of the development of twentieth-century pump irrigation in any area of the United States.

The CIA knows the identity of the next savior. The Company successfully kept the results of the secret project from the American people, for their own protection, since its completion in 1977. Now the scornful rage of one woman has the government on high alert. She secretly used the media in the past to cause irreparable damage to an administration; this time her revenge could destroy a nation. Robert Martin was searching for his last second chance. The long forgotten, Pulitzer Prize- winner, who threw his success away in a bottle, was exactly what the old woman needed for her scheme. It only took a single cryptic note to rekindle his reporter's instincts and spurn him on a 3000 mile-journey to the land of the maple leaves. Just when Martin was ready to concede that he was the brunt of an elaborate sick joke, people began to die and he learned he was a fugitive on the FBI's most-wanted list. The Station Chief had 72 hours left to wrap up the white op. He only had one shot to successfully complete his plan before termination became the Company's only viable option. . . .

“After the Rain,” is the sequel to “Through the Storms and Through the Rain.” It is a collection of poems that continues to describe how I felt when I was about 25 or 30 years old. I write about God in almost every poem because He has had such an impact on my life. He has become such an ever-present Friend until I have literally become consumed by His presence. Because I am so consumed by His presence I have come to have a great love and respect for Him. Almost every poem in some way describes how I learn to trust him and how I am continuously learning to trust and depend upon Him. It was not an easy process for me to trust and depend upon God. I constantly expressed how I felt and the struggles I encountered as I learned to love God, trust God and depend upon His Word. In my first book, “Through the Storms and Through the Rain,’ I describe many of my pent up feelings. I express a lot of self-doubt, pain, and disappointment. It was not easy having to deal with each difficulty that came into my life. I felt that if God was who He said He was then my life would not have to be so full of pain and heartache. When it seemed that He would not take the difficulties away I would become angry and accuse Him of all my pain. My philosophy was that if He were God then He was able to fix any problem and that included taking pain and disappointment out of my life. And when He didn’t I became even more angry. I often wondered how a loving God could allow so much pain and so much heart-ache in people’s lives. He reminded me that we live in a fallen world where there is much sin, anguish, and pain. Each of us will be affected by it whether we desire it or not. But it is our attitude toward the heartache and pain that determines our outcome. So God taught me that pain, heartache, and sorrow will come because I am not in Heaven. But He has already overcome this world. I have to focus my heart and soul upon Him. The prophet Isaiah reminds me that “God will keep me in perfect peace if I keep my mind stayed on Him.” (Isaiah 26:3)

This is a story of overcoming in the presence of life’s obstructions. Sometimes in life we see the storm clouds of trouble moving overhead, so we run for shelter. Other times, we’re caught completely off guard. Either way, we know that eventually those storms will pass. In every stage of my life, I have seen God’s hand of mercy and grace guiding not only my life, but the lives of those around me. This book is a collection of memories and experiences gathered from the various stages of my life in Jamaica before I immigrated to Canada. They journey through innocence, kindness, ignorance, and learning with a good mix of humour, laughter, fear, and disgust thrown in—and all told with a Caribbean flare! My prayer is that these stories will encourage others to face their “storms” with faith and trust in God, knowing that after the rain passes, He will still be there.

Biblical authors seized imagery drawn from everyday life and redeployed it in the service of divine revelation. But today’s readers are not familiar with many of these once-common illustrations. The distance in time, place, and culture between the Bible’s first recipients and people today often mutes the rhetorical impact of such images. Students of the Bible need someone to explain both the meaning and significance of the imagery found in the biblical text. The Zondervan Dictionary of Biblical Imagery provides the kind of assistance today’s readers need. Entries explain images that correspond to a cultural artifact from the biblical world (such as arrow or sandal), a component of natural history (such as fox or fig tree), a named place (such as Mount Sinai or Nazareth), or a component of the Promised Land’s physical geography (such as mountain or wilderness) Each entry contains a description of the element or image, examples of how the image is used in the biblical text, and appropriate full-color photographs and maps that further illustrate the ideas presented. Students of Scripture will find the Zodervan Dictionary of Biblical Imagery a fascinating and inspiring portal to the biblical world.

In Israel, the High Holiday cycle marks the transition from summer to the rainy season. In Waiting for Rain, the acclaimed teacher Bryna Levy offers a compelling collection of meditations that examine the biblical and liturgical readings associated with the High Holidays, from Rosh Hashanah to Simhat Torah. Based on a series of lectures given in Jerusalem at Matan – the Women's Institute for Torah Studies, and known as "The Hoshana Rabbah Lectures," Levy's readings of the traditional texts echo the natural and spiritual tenor of this season. Waiting for Rain joins the field of biblical interpretation known as parshanut ha-mikrah. It offers fresh insights into traditional rabbinic interpretation, together with the author's perspective as a modern Orthodox woman bible scholar. Levy explores the psyches of the biblical characters and addresses issues such as our connectedness to others, the tragedy of wasted opportunity, confronting evil, the denial of death, faith and doubt, personal and communal responsibility, universalism versus particularism, the challenge of leadership, sin and atonement, and the efficacy of prayer. The result is a highly personal approach to the meaning of the High Holidays that resonates with our own modern lives. Stories about heroes and heroines, love, faith, hope, and dreams make this book a moving and engaging source for study and reflection as well as an excellent companion to the traditional High Holiday prayer services.

Drops of Rain contains insight about the book of Revelation, which started being received about the year 2006. They started arriving as rain. They seemed to provide refreshment for one's soul. Each drop of rain suggests a new and different interpretation about an "old theme." These revelations are shared through new outlooks on various topics in the Scripture such as grief, obedience, love, pride, fear, choice, regret, and redemption. Drops of Rain includes a secondary book, "Chewing on the Word" (COW). COW proceeds to breakdown Revelation in further detail, shedding light on the tribulations to come, the wrath of God, the harvest of his people, the judgement of America, and his coming and return of Jerusalem.

The land is an important theme in the Bible. It is a theme through which the whole biblical history found in the Old and New Testaments can be studied and analyzed. Looking at the land in the Bible from its beginnings in the garden of Eden this publication approaches the theme from three distinct perspectives – holiness, the convenant, and the kingdom. Through careful analysis the author recognises that the land has been universalized in Christ, as anticipated in the Old Testament, and as a result promotes a missional theology of the land that underlines the social and territorial dimensions of redemption.
