And the wind is blowing!!

I could not believe how hard the wind is blowing today!! We are in desperate need of a new storm door, but we haven't bought one yet, but after today, we may have to. The wind is blowing so hard out there, that I have to tie the storm door to the inside!! I know, I sounds redneck, well, I have to tell ya, it looks redneck!! I had to keep an eye on my boys on the bus stop, I was afraid that they would blow away!! My youngest had gotten a Baltimore Ravens pendant for his birthday, and he wanted it on the front door, well, it's no longer there...*sigh* I am going to have to find another one for him, to replace it, because he really liked that! And when hubby got home, he had to fix the storm door, and that was a joyous time!! He was battling the wind to correct a door that the wind messed up!! It was a vicious circle, but he did fix it.

I really like this message today, so if you have a few minutes to read it, I am sure you will too!!

Have a Blessed Day!!



Come with me to a third grade classroom.....
There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened. It's never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find out, they'll never speak to him again as long as he lives. The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his head down and prays this prayer, "Dear God, this is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes from now I'm dead meat."

He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered.
As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Susie trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy's lap.

The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to
himself, "Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!" Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the
boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry out.

All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else - Susie.
She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. You've done
enough, you klutz!" Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers, "You did that on purpose, didn't you?" Susie whispers back, "I wet my pants once too."

May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good.

Remember.....Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car. Each and everyone one of us are going through tough times right now, but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can.

Keep the faith.
